  1. I would like to see a version of this product that had a smaller screen, such as a 128×64 pixel, so that the whole board would fit on a single breadboard. Having to use two separate breadboards is a deal breaker for me in terms of usability and convenience. I would rather have a separate microcontroller board and screen if they could fit onto one breadboard.

    I can see how this would be nice for projects with a custom enclosure though, to put everything all into one package.

    1. Thanks for the feedback!

      Unfortunately, the only smaller version of this particular display is a 128×96, and it is just as wide. And while it might seem like you could turn the display sideways to make it narrower, the flat flex connector would block the pin headers.

      There may be other displays available with different chipsets, but even if they’re a bit narrower, it only makes sense to put the display on a single breadboard if there are actually rows left over to either side of the device so you can plug jumpers in. And to achieve that would require a very narrow display indeed! Sparkfun achieved that with the Microview, but it is black and white and I don’t think a color display of that size exists.
