dcPin: Device.Pins.D01,
resetPin: Device.Pins.D00,
busyPin: Device.Pins.D03,
width: 200,
height: 200);

graphics = new MicroGraphics(display);

return Task.CompletedTask;
}

public override Task Run()
{
graphics.DrawRectangle(1, 1, 126, 32, Meadow.Foundation.Color.Black);

graphics.CurrentFont = new Font8x12();
graphics.DrawText(2, 2, "SSD1608", Meadow.Foundation.Color.Black);
