Description

Seeed Studio Round Display for XIAO is an expansion board compatible with all XIAO development boards. It features a fully covered touch screen on one side, designed as a 39mm disc. It contains an onboard RTC holder, charge chip, and MicroSD card slot within its compact size, perfect for interactive displays in smart homes, wearables, and more.

While initially designed only for the XIAO it can also be used for QT Py boards, although we found Arduino usage will take some effort due to use of forks of eTFT and a mish-mash of libraries not in the Arduino library manager. Instead we recommend trying out this CircuitPython example which worked nicely on an RP2040 QT Py - it probably wont run on a SAMD21 since you need a fair bit of memory.
