NEW PRODUCT – Adafruit 2.4″ TFT LCD with Touchscreen Breakout w/MicroSD Socket – ILI9341


Add some jazz & pizzazz to your project with a color touchscreen LCD. This TFT display is 2.4″ diagonal with a bright (4 white-LED) backlight and it’s colorful! 240×320 pixels with individual RGB pixel control, this has way more resolution than a black and white 128×64 display.

As a bonus, this display has a resistive touchscreen attached to it already, so you can detect finger presses anywhere on the screen.

If you need a larger touchscreen, check out the 2.8″ diagonal or 3.5″ diagonal TFT breakouts. For a smaller display, see our non-touch 2.2″ or 1.8″ or 1.44″ diagonal TFTs.

This display has a controller built into it with RAM buffering, so that almost no work is done by the microcontroller. The display can be used in two modes: 8-bit or SPI. For 8-bit mode, you’ll need 8 digital data lines and 4 or 5 digital control lines to read and write to the display (12 lines total). SPI mode requires only 5 pins total (SPI data in, data out, clock, select, and d/c) but is slower than 8-bit mode.

In addition, 4 pins are required for the touch screen (2 digital, 2 analog) or you can purchase and use our resistive touchscreen controller (not included) to use I2C or SPI.

Of course, we wouldn’t just leave you with a datasheet and a “good luck!”. For 8-bit interface fans we’ve written a full open source graphics library that can draw pixels, lines, rectangles, circles, text, and moreFor SPI users, we have a library as well, its separate from the 8-bit library since both versions are heavily optimized. For resistive touch, we also have a touch screen library that detects x, y and z (pressure) and example code to demonstrate all of it.
