Add some jazz & pizzazz to your project with a colour touch screen LCD. This TFT display is big (2.8" diagonal) bright (4 white-LED backlight) and colourful! 240x320 pixels with individual RGB pixel control, this has way more resolution than a black and white 128x64 display. As a bonus, this display has a resistive touch screen attached to it already, so you can detect finger presses anywhere on the screen.

This display has a controller built into it with RAM buffering, so that almost no work is done by the microcontroller. The display can be used in two modes: 8-bit and SPI. For 8-bit mode, you'll need 8 digital data lines and 4 or 5 digital control lines to read and write to the display (12 lines total). SPI mode requires only 5 pins total (SPI data in, data out, clock, select, and d/c) but is slower than 8-bit mode. In addition, 4 pins are required for the touch screen (2 digital, 2 analogue).

This display into an easy-to-use breakout board, with SPI connections on one end and 8-bit on the other. Both are 3-5V compliant with high-speed level shifters so you can use with any microcontroller. If you're going with SPI mode, you can also take advantage of the onboard microSD card socket to display images.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2.8" LCD with Touch Screen Nice product at a reasonable price. The screen worked without problem, but the touch screen did not function using the demo wiring and the "shield" demo program. On investigation I found that the connections to the TS in the example did not line up with those in the demo program. Once found it was a simple mater to change the wiring to line up with the program. The touch screen and LCD now function correctly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice looking display Nice looking display but took me ages to collect all the relevant information to get it working. The information is on the Internet but it's a bit of a magical mystery tour finding it and putting it all together.

Does with touch dispaly use the library created by Henning Karlsen UTFT & UTFT touch

Asked by: Andy
The recommended libraries for this device were written by the manufacturers, Adafruit. We couldn't guarantee compatibility with other 3rd party drivers.
