LILYGO T-Track ESP32-S3 board combines 1.1-inch AMOLED display with trackball

After the T-Display-S3 AMOLED board, LILYGO has launched another ESP32-S3 board with an AMOLED display named the T-Track that features a smaller 1.1-inch AMOLED display and a trackball that allows the user to navigate any menu or user interface shown on the display.

The rest of the board’s specifications are very similar with an ESP32-S3R8 dual-core chip with 8MB PSRAM providing WiFi and BLE connectivity, a 16MB SPI flash for storage, two rows of pins for up to 18x GPIOs, a Qwicc connector for module expansion, and support for USB-C charging and a LiPo battery for power.

  1. They won me over with the tiny track ball. I admit I have a soft spot for track balls. I picked up some tiny track ball modules years ago and made a USB/HID adapter for them so that they can be used as a mouse on modern hardware. They natively had a 2400 baud serial interface speaking an old serial mouse protocol.
