    Worked great with Raspberry Pi Pico W
    Used Adafruit tutorial at : https://learn.adafruit.com/1-8-tft-display?view=all
    No code modifications needed to run the “graphicstest” example under the “AdaFruit ST7335 and ST7789 Library”

    LCD connections to Pico W
    ◦ VCC to pin 36 – 3V3(OUT)
    ◦ GND to pin 38 – GND (or any other GND on the Pico)
    ◦ CS to pin 14 – GP10
    ◦ RESET to pin 12 – GP9
    ◦ A0 to pin 11 – GP8 (A0 is sometimes called DC in other examples)
    ◦ SDA to pin 25 – GP19 / SPIO TX
    ◦ SCK to pin 24 – GP18 / SPIO SCK
    ◦ LED to pin 36 – 3V3(OUT) (for max brightness – this is a PWM input, if unconnected the display is very dim)

    Got the SD card holder working with both a Raspberry Pi Pico H and a BBC micro:bit V1.5 by setting SPI speed to 4MHz and formatting the SD card using the Adafruit SdFat library (SdFat_-_Adafruit_Fork) found in:


    This allows images stored in files on the SD card to be displayed. Was also able to write to the card using the Pico, though I haven’t tried doing so with the micro:bit.
