Will the BS2 work with the new Qwiic Alphanumeric Display?

This a nice Alphanumeric Display but no idea if I can make work with bs2 or bs1. If does, I need a starting code for BS2. Can anybody help me out? Thanks!

  • That display is I2C, the Bs2 doesn't support it, only Bs2P or higher, You'll need this program to run I2C on the Bs2

    The code that Bob attached (which I wrote when I worked for Parallax) shows how to connect with an I2C EEPROM. You'll want to keep the I2C subroutines and then add code for the display. The driver is the HT16K33 which I've written the attached Propeller driver for. You'll want to download the datasheet for the chip and convert the routines you need. You'll need to keep things trim as there is not a lot of RAM in the BS2.
