Getting touchy performance with your touch screen? Resistive touch screens are incredibly popular as overlays to TFT and LCD displays. If your microcontroller doesn’t have analog inputs, or maybe you want just a way more elegant controller, the TSC2007 is a nice way to solve that problem.
The Adafruit TSC2007 guide has everything you need to get started with your resistive touch screen controller. There’s an overview, pinouts, CircuitPython and Python set up and examples, Arduino set up and examples, and download resources.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
