This TFT colour display with microSD card breakout is the size of your thumbnail, with glorious 160x80 pixel colour. This very very small display is only 0.96" diagonal, packed with RGB pixels, for making very small high-density displays.

The display is a great 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 0.96" display has 160x80 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 16-bit colour using the Adafruit GFX library code.

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. There is a microSD card holder so you can easily load full color bitmaps from a FAT16/FAT32 formatted microSD card. Note: The microSD card is not included.

There is a full open source graphics library that can draw pixels, lines, rectangles, circles, text and bitmaps as well as example code and a wiring tutorial available. The code is written for Arduino IDE but can be easily ported to your favorite microcontroller!
