Can I use the BT88x with circular displays?

Yes, the BT88x is ideal for using with circular displays. These are available in various sizes such as 2.1” diameter and are great for making digital gauges. The BT88x series includes resistive (BT880 and BT882) and capacitive (BT881 and BT883) touch versions and so you can choose a screen with the best type of touch for your application (or you can use without touch if it is not required). Some panels require the display itself to be set to RGB mode after power-up via a separate serial channel. It is recommended to check the datasheet for your display as if this is needed, some additional pins on the display connector should be connected to your host MCU.
