A kit of all the parts required to build the 2.8-inch version of the Micromite LCD BackPack. This includes:
2.8-inch touchscreen with 320x240 pixels
Programmed microcontroller and IC socket
3.3V low-dropout regulator
All capacitors (ceramic types supplied)
10kΩ resistor and 100Ω trimpot
Pin headers (male and female)
Tapped spacers and machine screws
UB3 lid (laser-cut 3mm acrylic)
The PCBs, programmed microcontroller and regulator are also available separately.
PLEASE NOTE: the 10µF and 47µF capacitors supplied are non-polarised SMD ceramic types. They have no markings and can be installed either way around. You can tell them apart as the 10µF capacitors are in a pack of two.
For assembly instructions, see the article in the February 2016 issue.
Also note: kits include 4 x 6mm machine screws, 4 x 10mm (or 8mm) machine screws and 4 x 3mm ID 6mm OD 1mm thick Nylon spacers. The longer screws & spacers are to attach the BackPack to the supplied lid. If not using the lid, place the washers under the 10mm screw heads.
