Effortless touch development is obtained with Newhaven Display’s Arduino shields. Available in six display variations, these shields are ready to mate with some of Arduino’s most commonly used development boards. No extra controller boards or messy cables are required, providing a much faster and effortless experience in developing with a touchscreen TFT. Each shield features a 480 x 272 resolution TFT in the form of a sunlight-readable, premium (MVA), or standard LCD display type. In addition to these three different display types, there are two different touchscreen options to choose from: capacitive or 4-wire resistive touch.
These shields feature the FT801 (capacitive touch) or the FT800 (resistive touch) video engine, by FTDI, which may be used to develop and demonstrate the functionality of the FT80X IC’s and Newhaven’s 4.3” touchscreen TFT displays. Additionally, the shields generate audio output with an on-board power amplifier. Engineered in Elgin, Illinois, these 4.3” Arduino shields are the best and quickest method for developing with touch TFTs.
