This little display breakout is the best way to add a small, colourful 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 1.8" display has 128x160 colour pixels. Unlike the low cost "Nokia 6110" and similar LCD displays, which are CSTN type and thus have poor colour and slow refresh, this display is a true TFT! The TFT driver (ST7735R) can display full 18-bit colour (262,144 shades!). And the LCD will always come with the same driver chip so there's no worries that your code will not work from one to the other.

The breakout has the TFT display soldered on (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 colour bitmaps from a FAT16/FAT32 formatted microSD card. The microSD card is not included.

Nice item

good service, this was to go on the mega pro mini. wiring is easy with pins 4 cs sd card, pins 8,9,10 for DC, Reset, n TFT Chip Select...then pins 50,51,52 for SPI....The Mega and pro mini does not follow the Uno and Nano's SPI pin numbers...but there are examples on Git Hub that sort that part out....10 out of 10 ps you can wire the Backlight pin to %v or as I did wire to any PWM pin so that you can control the backlihgt
