This is a boosterpack that fits on top of the Launchpad, with a small, low current 96x65 LCD screen and 4 capacitative touch pads. This pack is a good component if you want to show text and graphics as part of your project.
The display is an SPI-based Powertip PE9665WRF with the ST7579 controller, drawing approximately 0.2mA current.
The display has backlight, but this is not connected by default. To turn on the backlight, you need to solder on a resistor to the board according to the instructions.
