Going Further

The LP55231 is a deep part. Our recommended "going further" in this case is actually becoming more familiar with its inner workings.

To get deeper into the LP55231, look over the other example sketches in the repository. There are demonstrations of features that we haven't touched on here. Each sketch has a detailed comment near the top that describes what is going on.

From there, you can start to write your own LP55231 programs by modifying the examples, or even take the bold step of writing them from scratch!
