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

We'll cover how to wire the display to your Raspberry Pi. First assemble your Sharp Display.

Since there's dozens of Linux computers/boards you can use we will show wiring for Raspberry Pi. For other platforms, please visit the guide for CircuitPython on Linux to see whether your platform is supported

Connect the display as shown below to your Raspberry Pi.

  • Raspberry Pi GND to LCD Gnd
  • Raspberry Pi 3.3V to LCD Vin
  • Raspberry Pi SCK (GPIO 11) to LCD Clk
  • Raspberry Pi MOSI (GPIO 10) to LCD DI
  • Raspberry Pi GPIO 6 to LCD CS
