1.8 inch 128x160 TFT LCD for Arduino Esplora

$12.95
SKU 328383

This is the matching LCD for your Arduino Esplora or compatible development board. The display is preassembled and ready to drop into your Esplora, and can also be used with other Arduino boards via direct wiring. A microSD card socket is also included. 

The screen is 1.8" diagonal, with 160 x 128 pixel resolution. The TFT library found in the Arduino IDE interfaces with the screen's controller through SPI when using the TFT library

  • The screen runs on +5 VDC
  • The micro-SD slot is accessible through the SD card library.
  • The LED backlight is dimmable by PWM.
  • The screen's headers are laid out so it easily sockets into the Arduino Esplora and Arduino Robot.

The Arduino TFT library extends the Adafruit GFX, and Adafruit ST7735 libraries that it is based on. The GFX library is responsible for the drawing routines, while the ST7735 library is specific to the screen on the Arduino screen. The Arduino specific additions were designed to work as similarly to the Processing API as possible.

The library is backwards compatible, which means you can still use the Adafruit functions described here.

The TFT library relies on the SPI library, which must be included in any sketch that uses the scree. If you wish to use the SD card, you need to include the SD library as well.
