NEW PRODUCT – Touch screen (Nintendo DSL digitizer)

Touchscreen Lrg

NEW PRODUCT – Touch screen (Nintendo DSL digitizer). Want to poke at your projects? This resistive touch screen can be used with a stylus or fingertip and is easy to use with a microcontroller. You can put it over a paper overlay for a touch control panel or attach it to an LCD to DIY a touch-activated display.

  • 2.2″ x 2.75″ (55mm x 70mm) overall dimensions, 1.5mm thick
  • 3.2″ diagonal active area, 80mm
  • 600 ohms across X pins, 300 ohms across Y pins
  • 4 wire resistive display, on a 0.5mm FPC connector
  • Use any microcontroller with 2 digital pins and two analog input pins
  • Adhesive backing, it fits onto our ST7565 LCD (not as well on a KS0108 LCD, its a little too small)

The connector is very fine so we suggest using our touch screen breakout board to make it easier to connect.

We don’t have a detailed tutorial yet but we do have great example Arduino library code that shows how to get readings, debounce, and read the pressure (so you can detect when its being touched and how hard) The code is not complex and is easily ported to other microcontrollers.

To understand how touchscreens work, and the techniques used to read from them, we suggest this great app note.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
