2.0" 320x240 Color IPS TFT Display with microSD Card Breakout (ID:4311)
£18.33 ex VAT
This gorgeous IPS display breakout is the best way to add a small, colourful and bright display to any project, with excellent visibility from any angle. 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 2.0" display has 320x240 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! Not only that, but its an IPS display for vivid colour and high-angle visibility. The TFT driver (ST7789) can display full 18-bit colour (262,144 shades), but almost all drivers will use just 16-bit colour. The TFT will always come with the same driver chip so there are 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 an ultra-low-dropout 3.3V regulator, auto-reset circuitry, and a 3/5V level shifter so you can use it with 3.3V or 5V power and logic. They also had a little space so they placed a microSD card holder so you can easily load full colour bitmaps from a FAT16/FAT32 formatted microSD card (not included).

The code is written for Arduino but can be easily ported to your favourite microcontroller! Wiring is easy, it's strongly encouraged to use the hardware SPI pins of your Arduino as software SPI is noticeably slower when dealing with this size display.
