This little breakout is the best way to add a small, colorful and bright display to any project. The 4-wire SPI for communication and pixel-addressable frame buffer means it can be used with every kind of microcontroller, even if very small with low memory and few pins available!


Description [Hide]

The 1.8" display has 128x160 color pixels. Unlike the low cost "Nokia 6110" and similar LCD displays, which are CSTN type and thus have poor color and slow refresh, this display is a true TFT! The TFT driver (ST7735R) can display full 18-bit color (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, which allows you to use the display with virtually any microcontroller. There's also a microSD card holder so you can easily load full color bitmaps from a FAT16/FAT32 formatted microSD card. The microSD card is not included.

Of course, we wouldn't just leave you with a datasheet and a "good luck!" - here's a link to the full open source graphics library that can draw pixels, lines, rectangles, circles, text and bitmaps as well as example code and a wiring tutorial. The code is written for Arduino but can be easily ported to your favorite microcontroller!

Specifications:

  • 1.8" diagonal LCD TFT display
  • 128x160 resolution, 18-bit (262,144) color
  • ST7735R (datasheet) controller with built in pixel-addressable video RAM buffer
  • 4 or 5 wire SPI digital interface
  • Built-in microSD slot - uses 2 more digital lines
  • 5V compatible! Use with 3.3V or 5V logic
  • Onboard 3.3V @ 150mA LDO regulator
  • 2 white LED backlight, transistor connected so you can PWM dim the backlight
  • 1x10 header for easy breadboarding
  • 4 x 0.9"/2mm mounting holes in corners
  • Overall dimensions: 1.35" x 2.2" x 0.25" (34mm x 56mm x 6.5mm)
