NEW PRODUCT – Resistive Touchscreen Overlay – 7″ diag. 165mm x 105mm – 4 Wire. If you already have a 7″ TFT that is about 165mm x 105mm in size, you can put this resistive overlay over it to add a resistive touch screen.
To use, first remove the protective plastic wrap from both sides. Attach to your touchscreen controller (we suggest our AR1100 USB touch adapter if you need USB mouse interface, or the STMPE610 breakout for I2C/SPI) and test to make sure the screen works over all – remember that only one side will work for touch, so flip it over if you can’t get it working. Once you know which way is up, and you’ve got the touch screen talking to your controller, use double-sided tape to attach it to your screen, carefully lining up the outer edges.
