Spice up your Arduino project with a beautiful large touchscreen
display shield with built in microSD card connection. This TFT display
is big (2.8" diagonal) bright (4 white-LED backlight) and colorful
(18-bit 262,000 different shades)! 240x320 pixels with individual
pixel control. It has way more resolution than a black and white
128x64 display. As a bonus, this display has a resistive touchscreen
attached to it already, so you can detect finger presses anywhere on
the screen.

We've updated our original v1 shield to an SPI display - its a tiny
bit slower but uses a lot less pins and is now much easier to use with
Mega & Leonardo. We also include an SPI touchscreen controller so you
only need one additional pin to add a high quality touchscreen
controller. Even with all the extras, the price is lower thanks to our
parts sourcing & engineering skillz!

The shield is fully assembled, tested and ready to go. No wiring, no
soldering! Simply plug it in and load up our library - you'll have it
running in under 10 minutes! Works best with any classic Arduino
(UNO/Duemilanove/Diecimila). Solder three jumpers and you can use it
at full speed on a Leonardo or Mega as well.

This display shield has a controller built into it with RAM
buffering, so that almost no work is done by the microcontroller. This
shield needs fewer pins than our v1 shield, so you can connect more
sensors, buttons and LEDs: 5 SPI pins for the display, another pin for
the SPI touchscreen controller and another pin for uSD card if you
want to read images off of it.

Of course, we wouldn\'t just leave you with a datasheet and a "good
luck!" - we\'ve written a full open source graphics library that can
draw pixels, lines, rectangles, circles and text. We also have a touch
screen library that detects x, y and z (pressure) and example code to
demonstrate all of it. The code is written for Arduino but can be
easily ported to your favorite microcontroller! [1]


* 2.8" diagonal color touchscreen TFT
* 240x320 resolution, 18-bit (262,000) color - our library uses 16
bit color mode
* ILI9341 (datasheet) controller with built in video RAM buffer
* STMPE610 touch screen controller
* High speed SPI display with digital SPI touchscreen driver
* The display uses digital pins 13-9. Touchscreen controller
requires digital pin 8. microSD pin requires digital #4. That means
you can use digital pins 2, 3, 5, 6, 7 and analog 0-5. Pin 4 is
available if not using the microSD
* Works with any classic Arduino '328. Solder closed three jumpers
to use the ICSP header for use with Leonardo or Mega
* Onboard 3.3V @ 300mA LDO regulator, current draw depends on usage
but is about 100mA for the display and touchscreen
* 4 white LED backlight. On by default but you can connect the
transistor to a digital pin for backlight control
* 4-wire resistive touchscreen attached to STMPE610 controller
