DPI LCD Display and VL53L1X Time of Flight Sensor

Hi there!

Is it possible to use the 3.5inch DPI LCD Display whit the VL53L1X Time of Flight Sensor together at the same time? I only see two free pins from the display. Is there maybe a workaround?

It might work. You could try to attach to 3V3, GND, 19 SDA and 23 SCL. Seems like the waveshare puts I2C-touch on 19/23. I2C is a bus and as long as the driver does not use the same address as the VL53L1X, it should work.

If this doesn’t do the trick, you can still use an usb-i2c bridge like the MCP2221. Adafruit has a nice breakout.

Thanks! I will try it out
