NEW PRODUCT – 2.8″ TFT Display – 240×320 with Capacitive Touchscreen


Add some jazz & pizzazz to your project with a color capacitive touchscreen LCD. This TFT display is big (2.8″ diagonal) bright (4 white-LED backlight) and 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 capacitive single-touch touchscreen attached to it already, so you can detect finger presses anywhere on the screen. (We also have a resistive touchscreen version of this display with a breakout)

This is a screen for advanced hackers who like the look of the TFT screen we’ve put into the PiTFT, TFT shield v2 and 2.8″ TFT breakout with capacitive touch. This display has 320×240 pixels and is driven with the ILI9341 chipset. The touch chip is a FT6206 which communicates over I2C. This is just the display module! No PCB is included! You can talk to this chip with SPI (4 or 3 wire), 8 bit parallel, or 16 bit parallel. It also can be put into “dot clock mode” for raw TTL signal in but we have never done this ourselves so there’s no example code for that.

We’re selling this module bare for those who want to integrate it into their own project. If this is your first time working with this TFT we suggest our breakout board which makes it easy to use SPI or 8-bit interfacing and also has mounting holes, level shifting, etc.. For the TFT command set, the data sheet is very complete, but we also have some Arduino code you can refer to here to get started.

A 50-pin, 0.5mm pitch, top-contact FPC connector is required to connect to this screen. We show one in the photos, but it is not included! You cannot solder this connector directly to a PCB – a matching connector is required, you can pick one up here. Otherwise, you can pick up one of our 50-pin FPC breakouts and an 50-pin FPC connector and manually solder.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
