How do I avoid a bus collision? A question for true experts.
Totally looks like the TX Enable of the master is staying active too long.   Is the master using a crappy USB to RS485 adapter that simply uses  an RC-Diode time...

is this bread boarded.  Is there enough inductance in your leads to have ringing or oscillations  that exceeds the diodes rating?   I assume you have checked you CC...

Advice on touchscreen LCD?
At scale - a generic 16x2 LCD is not cheaper than a TFT unless you have to include the cost of a larger battery to run the colour one.   A modern chip on glass led backlit...

SD Card 5v to 3.3v level shifting for AVR
Just using 1K8 and 3K3 resistor to drop from 5V to 3v3 and then relying on the MISO pin to read the 3v3 swing output is not "in spec".  However I can say that thousands of...

What value is the PIN toggle?
can you not make a 2/4/6/8/10/12/14/16/18 clock pulse from a USART with a single out instruction?

Mimic SAA1043 to generate PAL CCIR sync
For completeness.  Here is a PCB that takes an AC coupled composite signal.  It uses an edge detector on the analog comparator pin.  Software then searches for "...
