CircuitPython Wiring

It's easy to use the Sharp Memory Display with CircuitPython and the Adafruit CircuitPython SharpMemoryDisplay module.  This module allows you to easily write Python code to control the display.

You can use this display with any CircuitPython microcontroller board or with a computer that has GPIO and Python thanks to Adafruit_Blinka, our CircuitPython-for-Python compatibility library.

We'll cover how to wire the display to your CircuitPython microcontroller board. First assemble your Sharp Display.

We're going to show you how to wire it up to a Feather M4 Express. Because the logic levels on a Feather M4 Express are already 3.3v, you don't need a logic level shifter.

Connect the display to your microcontroller board as shown below.

  • Microcontroller GND to LCD Gnd
  • Microcontroller 3V to LCD Vin
  • Microcontroller SCK to LCD Clk
  • Microcontroller MOSI to LCD DI
  • Microcontroller D6 to LCD CS
