Performance

  • After setting up the CircuitPython environment, you can copy all the contents of the CircuitPython directory in the downloaded Pico example to the recognized U flash drive, and you can run the example (there are 16 demos in this code).
  • The PSD folder is a file in ".psd" format, which can be used to modify the text image that needs to be moved. The modified image needs to be saved as "Excellent" and the format needs to be converted to "BMP" format.
