NEW PRODUCTS – NTSC/PAL (Television) TFT Displays (1.5″, 2.0″, 2.5″ & 3.5″ diagonal). Yes, these are adorable miniature televisions! The visible displays measures only 1.5″, 2.0″, 2.5″ & 3.5″ diagonal, the TFT comes with a NTSC/PAL driver board. The display is very easy to use – simply connect 4.5-15VDC to the red and black wires, then connect a composite video source to the yellow and black wire. Voila, a television display!

To demonstrate it, we took some photos with the display connected to a Raspberry Pi, but it will also work connected to any analog composite-video output such as a YBox or Propeller w/Video out. It will not work with a device that only outputs VGA, HDMI or any other digital video signal.

Please note, these miniature displays are very delicate and require care to avoid ripping the delicate flex connector. These are best used by electronics geeks who have experience and are comfortable working with delicate electronic components. WE CANNOT REPLACE DAMAGED DISPLAYS if you are not careful and rip the flex connector!

  1. Do these display static upon loss of signal ? or do they blue/black screen ?
    If they display static the FPV flying guys will love these

  2. @jason – no static 🙂

  3. The display resolution (in dots) mentioned in the A025DL02 data sheet for the 2.5 inch display (ID: 912) is 960(W) x 240(H). Is there some downscaling happening in the controller?

  4. @bryan – 960(W) x 240(H) == 320 RGB x 240. Each RGB sub pixel is counted as a dot

  5. @adafruit – *face palm*, of course. Thanks!

  6. What does standard terminal output look like on one of these screens – is the text legible, or even comfortable to read? I’m most interested in the 3.5″ one.

  7. @richard, too small to read
