The Arduino TFT Screen is a backlit LCD screen with headers. You can draw text, images, and shapes to the screen with the Arduino TFT Library. There is an on-board microSD card slot on the back of the screen that can, among other things, store bitmap images for the screen to display.
This module's headers are designed to plug directly into the Arduino Esplora, but you also can use this display with any other AVR-based Arduino (Uno, Leonardo, etc.) or with the Arduino Due — you'll just need a breadboard and some prototyping wires to connect the display to them.
This is the same display that comes included with the Arduino Robot.
The screen is 1.77" diagonal, with 160 × 128 pixel resolution. The Arduino TFT Library communicates with the screen's controller via SPI. The screen runs on +5V DC. The microSD slot is accessible through the Arduino SD Card Library. The LED backlight is dimmable via PWM.
Arduino TFT Library The Arduino TFT Library is an extension of the Adafruit GFX and Adafruit ST7735 libraries. The GFX library is responsible for the drawing routines, while the ST7735 library is specific to the screen on the Arduino screen. The Arduino-specific additions were designed to work as similarly to the Processing API as possible. The library is backwards-compatible, which means you can still use the Adafruit functions.
Note: The TFT Library relies on the SPI Library, which must be included in any sketch that uses the screen. If you wish to use the SD card, you need to include the SD Library as well. Download all three libraries in the Resources section below:
