I’ve already managed to fry two Pi B+s so I figured it was time to ask for help! :s
I’m working on a little box that my mom can hook the InkyPHAT up to and hold a button to track her exercise and physio.
So far I have the python code figured out so it displays a random background and prints a progress bar based on the amount of walking she does vs her goal.
Everything was going great until I tried to add more than just the screen.
I used the pin out info that Pimoroni points to on the product page (https://pinout.xyz/pinout/inky_phat#) and hooked up these pins hoping to use the other pins for buttons and LEDs.
1 - 3v
2 - 5v
11 - BCM 17 - chip busy
13 - BCM 27 - chip reset
15 - BCM 22 - chip command
19 - BCM 10 - MOSI
23 - BCM 11 - SCLK
24 - BCM 8 - chip select
With all these pins hooked up I can’t get the display to load and I think I managed to cross some wires when working with the bread board and have managed to burn out 2x Raspberry Pi’s and I’m starting to get worried.
What pins am I missing?
Is there a better way to add LEDs and buttons as well as the display?
Is there a safer way to test this so I can stop ruining my Raspberry Pis?
