Description How To More Details
 
With the 2.8" TFT Touch Shields For Arduino you can spice up your Arduino project with a beautiful large touchscreen display shield with built in microSD card connection. This TFT display is big (2.8" diagonal) bright (4 white-LED backlight) and colorful (18-bit 262,000 different shades)! 240x320 pixels with individual pixel control. It has way more resolution than a black and white 128x64 display. As a bonus, this display has a resistive touchscreen attached to it already, so you can detect finger presses anywhere on the screen.

The shield is fully assembled, tested and ready to go. No wiring, no soldering! Simply plug it in and load up our library - you'll have it running in under 10 minutes! Works best with any classic Arduino (UNO/Duemilanove/Diecimila). This shield does work with the Mega Arduinos but its going to be half the speed of the Uno-type boards because of the way the Mega rearranges all the pins (there is no way to get around this!)

This display shield has a controller built into it with RAM buffering, so that almost no work is done by the microcontroller. The shield does require a lot of pins: 12 lines total for the display, 13 total if you use the microSD card

Features
  • 2.8" diagonal LCD TFT display
  • 240x320 resolution, 18-bit (262,000) color
  • ILI9325 (datasheet) or ILI9328 (datasheet) controller with built in video RAM buffer
  • 8 bit digital interface, plus 4 control lines
  • Uses digital pins 5-13 and analog 0-3. That means you can use digital pins 2, 3 and analog 4 and 5. Pin 12 is available if not using the microSD
  • Works with any Arduino '328 (Mega not supported yet)
  • 5V compatible! Use with 3.3V or 5V logic
  • Onboard 3.3V @ 300mA LDO regulator
  • 4 white LED backlight. On by default but you can connect the transistor to a digital pin for backlight control
  • 4-wire resistive touchscreen

Does as advertised April 24, 2013
Reviewer: Jacob Powers from Maine, ME United States  
Great screen ran through all the examples and works fine.   My only complaint is you can't get at any of the unused digital or analog pins on an Uno.  Would have liked to have known before I purchased so I could have gotten the $20 less breakout screen.
