How to score a green Clue?

by blnkjns on Thu Feb 18, 2021 3:17 am

I like to try the Clue, but I see it comes in both green and black. The green one looks a bit nicer, better centered display, so how to obtain the green one? Can't specify that anywhere in the shop.
Regarding the specs: is the screen working with the ST7735 / ST7789 driver? What pins does I fill in here:
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
Adafruit_ST7789 tft = Adafruit_ST7789(TFT_CS,TFT_DC,TFT_RST);

Does it compare well with the micro:bit V2? It seems to have better specs than the V1.

I think the green ones are from a production run done in the early days of covid. The regular fab house was closed, so an alternate was used. There's no way to select green/black however.

The TFT used is this one:

For use on the CLUE, try these pins:
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
#define TFT_CS 31  // Display CS Arduino pin number
#define TFT_DC 32  // Display D/C Arduino pin number
#define TFT_RST 33 // Display reset done with chip
