Hi I took a activity tracker apart with the goal of writing my own 
firmware for it. I stumbled accross the component in the picture. But 
don't know at all what  it could be. It is directly wired to an 
accelerometer and a 256Kbit EEPROM.
Do you recognize the Logo?

Background information:
The activity tracker is based on the nRF51822
Link to the complete circuit board with background information:

My guess would by a gyroscope chip, but I was unable to find a match. 
Look at a distributors website for possible machtes on the package, and 
then look at the pinouts in the datasheet.

So this is a display controller from Genitop? Rather unusual to have 
this as a separate part. Usually you see everything being controlled 
directly from the main MCU is low cost fitness trackers.

Thank you very much, that looks very promising. How did you find that 
out?

No, it is just some SPI memory containing fonts.

I'll take one please :)
I'm also looking for a datasheet to the component in this image

Do have any source for that? My impression of the chinese datasheet in 
Google translate isn't the same...

Thanks to you all :)
