The square form-factor of this display makes it great for cramming lots of information on—data, graphs, even things like album art and photos. Like our smaller 0.9" LCD breakout, this one is an IPS display, so it has great viewing angles and it's super-crisp and bright.
It's driven by SPI and you should be able to run it at up to ~50FPS, although we've found that anywhere from 10FPS looks good for most uses.
You can use this breakout completely solder-free with Breakout Garden HAT with SPI!
We've adapted an existing Python library to drive this display. The library makes it straightforward to display images, text or graphics, and even display animated GIFs!
If you're not using Breakout Garden HAT with SPI, then this is how to connect your LCD Breakout up to your Raspberry Pi.
Our Python library is set up to use SPI 1 by default on the Pi (BCM 7 for CS, BCM 11 for SCK, and BCM 10 for MOSI), BCM 9 for DC, and BCM 19 for the backlight.
Here's which pins to connect between your 0.96" LCD Breakout and your Pi's GPIO (note that it's BCM pin numbering):
You can of course use other pins with your LCD Breakout, but you'll have to change them accordingly when you instantiate the display in your code.
