1.8″ TFT LCD Breakout Board


1.8″ TFT LCD Breakout Board


SKU: LCD-004 - Mfg Part Number: 358


This 1.8″ TFT LCD is the best way to add a small, colourful, and bright display to any project! The display uses 4 wire SPI to communicate and has its own pixel-addressable frame buffer making it compatible with just about every kind of microcontroller.

The 1.8″ display has 128×160 color pixels. Unlike the low cost “Nokia 6110” and similar LCD displays, which are CSTN type and thus have poor color and slow refresh, this display is a true TFT! The TFT driver (ST7735R) can display full 18-bit color (262,144 shades!). And the LCD will always come with the same driver chip so there's no worries that your code will not work from one to the other.

The breakout has the TFT display soldered on (it uses a delicate flex-circuit connector) as well as a ultra-low-dropout 3.3V regulator and a 3/5V level shifter so you can use it with 3.3V or 5V power and logic. There is a microSD card holder on the back so you can easily load full color bitmaps from a FAT16/FAT32 formatted microSD card.
