- Best way to add a small, colorful and bright display to any project
- Has its own pixel-addressable frame buffer
- Can be used with every kind of microcontroller even low memor, small ones with few available pins
- Displays full 16-bit color using Adafruit's library code
This lovely little display breakout is the best way to add a small, colorful and bright display to any project. Since the display uses 4-wire SPI to communicate and has its own pixel-addressable frame buffer, it can be used with every kind of microcontroller. Even a very small one with low memory and few pins available!
The 1.44" display has 128x128 color pixels. Unlike the low cost "Nokia 6110" and similar LCD displays, which are CSTN type and have poor color and slow refresh, this display is a true TFT! The TFT driver(ST7735R) can display full 16-bit color with code.
The breakout has the TFT display pre-soldered (it uses a delicate flex-circuit connector) as well as a ultra-low-dropout 3.3V regulator and a 3/5V level shifter so you can use it with 3.3V or 5V power and logic. We also had a little space so we placed a microSD card holder so you can easily load full color bitmaps from a formatted microSD card.
Display: 1.44" diagonal LCD TFT
Resolution: 128x128, 18-bit (262,144) color
4 or 5 wire SPI digital interface
Built-in microSD slot - uses 2 more digital lines
microSD card is not included
5V compatible! Use with 3.3V or 5V logic
Onboard 3.3V @ 150mA LDO regulator
1 - white LED backlight, transistor connected so you can PWM dim the backlight
1x12 header for easy breadboarding
4 - 0.9"/2mm mounting holes in corners
Overall dimensions: 33m x 45mm x 7mm / 1.3" x 1.8" x 0.3"
Mounting Holes: 36mm x 36mm / 1.4" x 1.4"
Current draw is based on LED backlight usage: with full backlight draw is ~25mA
