Hi Robert,
Whilst you still need a compass, ASI and Altimeter as backup instruments, they no longer need to be steam driven (apart from the compass), you can now use electronic instruments suitably independantly powered). You can find details from the LAA here:

As a backup to my Dynon Skyview, I used the MGL combined ASI/Altimeter as I think it gives the clearest display, and it's the cheapest. It doesn't come with a built in battery backup however, I had to design my own, with the help of the Sparkies on the Matronics Aeroelectrics list. Happy to share the design if you choose to go down that route.

Hi Bob

Great thank you, that makes sense,
I’ll let you know what sort of backup I decide to go for
Cheers
