PIC32 Tic-Tac-Toe: Demonstration of using touch-screen, TFT and the Protothreads threading library

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

Tahmid writes: I had previously used the Adafruit TFT display using my library (ported from the Adafruit Arduino library). I decided to optimize the library to improve drawing speed. The same display I use comes with a 4-wire resistive touch-screen as well. I decided to write a simple library for...

3D Model: 1.8” TFT Backpack

Monday, September 3rd, 2012

Today's 3D model is a 1.8'' TFT Backpack board we've been playing with lately in the workshop. It's a cheap 1.8'' serial TFT we got of of eBay. The picture was rendered using Kerkythea, sorry about the light-umbrella reflection on the screen. The board features a PIC microcontroller that controls...

Eagle Parts: Serial 1.8” TFT and 2×10 shrouded header update

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Lately we're playing around with a 1.8'' serial interface TFT which can be bought from eBay for ~$6. We added it to our Eagle part library. We also found some errors on the standard Eagle footprint for 2x10 shrouded headers we use in the Bus Blaster v3. Image of the...

Arduino and TFT LCD tutorial

Friday, February 18th, 2011

LCD displays of the 2x16 variety are a good way of getting feedback from your Arduino project. If you want a more enhanced visual experience, a thin-film transistor (TFT) LCD is the superior way to go. This tutorial by Tronixstuff describes a way use the the 4D Systems 1.44″ TFT...
