UPDATED TUTORIAL: 2.8″ TFT Touch Shield

Megatft

We added Mega support to the TFT shield! Updated tutorial here.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. I hope this is not repetitive, but thanks so much for still working on stuff that’s already out. Us learning folk really like that! 🙂

  2. this code is for the shield, so you can plug the shield directly in, which is what pretty much everyone wants to do. plug-and-go. it works well. if you want to change the wiring, use the 2.8″ tft breakout board, that also works with the mega and has mega optimized code.

    as you are aware, the pin port changes between the uno and mega mean you can only support one optimally. we chose to support the uno optimally with this shield. it does work with the mega now, by just plugging it in. we don’t have any plans to make a full mega TFT shield
