  • You list the power pin (3v3) as "output only". The schematic and my testing show that you can power the microbit through the 3v3 pin of the edge connector. As noted in the microbit documentation, you must insure that power does not exceed 3.6v.

  • I couldn't get this to work with UNO (5v) using the 10k resistors (998 errors). I had to use a level converter.

  • FYI -- got this display working with Maple arm (arduino-like) board in serial mode using UART Tx (Serial1) and with SPI at the slowest SPI frequency (140 kHz) and also works at 281KHz

No public wish lists :(
