The breakout board comes fully assembled and tested. We include an optional strip of header pins to make it easier to use this display in a breadboard. The header can be installed in just a few minutes with your soldering iron:

Prepare the header strip

Cut the header to size and insert (long pins down) into a breadboard to stabilize for soldering.

Position the display

Place the display breakout on the header so that the short pins protrude through the holes.

And Solder!

Solder all pins to assure a good electrical connection.

Remove the protective film

Gently pull up on the tab to remove the film.
