To do it, to do it, to do it...

A project log for Trinket M0 TFT

A 160x80 color LCD display that goes on top of the Trinket

After a hint from @limor about a reset pin and some experimenting, I decided to re-do this PCB, this time properly, following all the rules.

So the reset pin is now tied to the board's reset. That frees up one digital pin, which I can now use for chip select, instead of having it pulled down permanently. Because the Trinket M0 doesn't have a pull-up resistor on its reset pin, I had to add one.

The second resistor is for the LED back-light, so you can pick the right one for the brightness you desire.

Finally, I added a filter capacitor to the display's power, for good measure.

I also fixed the mounting holes and added a logo. The logo is up-side-down in relation to the text on the board, but I only noticed it now and who looks at those things anyways.

Guilty as charged.
