Title: esplora lcd
Post by: Spencer1325 on Aug 27, 2013, 06:04 am
hey im pretty new to arduinos. but i just bought an arduino esplora lcd. i am trying to test it out for the fist time but i cant find any examples to try an upload. So i was just wondering if i could get some help trying to get this thing to work, right now i have it connected to an arduino uno.

you might need to download
- https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-ST7735-Library - has some examples (you might need to patch SPI pins)
- https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-GFX-Library -

If you want to eventually use it on an Esplora you'll want to try to replicate the same pins that it would plug into an esplora.  See the unofficial diagram for the pin numbers.

If trying on an Uno, you'll need to be aware that Esplora is based on the Arduino Leonardo which does things a tiny bit different.

I have some cool demos at http://21stdigitalhome.blogspot.com/
