Arduino TFT LCD Touch Screen Tutorial (2.8" ILI9341 Driver) from

2018-06-19 07:42
Welcome to another Arduino video tutorial! In this video, we are going to take a first look at this 2.8” Color TFT Touch display! It is a big, low-cost touch display which is very easy to use. Without any further delay, let’s get started. Today we are going to learn how to drive the 2.8” Touch display with the ILI9341 driver with an Arduino Uno and an ESP32 board. First of all, let’s take a close look at the display itself. The display is big, and it offers a resolution of 320x240 pixels. Compared to one of my favorites displays, the 1.8” Color TFT display you can see it a lot larger. The screen also offers touch functionality which is an added bonus and an SD card slot at the back. It uses the SPI interface, so the connection with the Arduino is very straightforward. The cost of the display is relatively low; it costs around 11$ which in my opinion is a fair price for what this display offers. -------------------- WHERE TO BUY -------------------- 2.8" Inch Display: Arduino Uno: Resistors: Arduino Pro Mini: ESP32: STM32: DS3231 RTC: Breadboard: Wires: Full disclosure: All of the links above are affiliate links. I get a small percentage of each sale they generate. Thank you for your support! Another thing I like about this display is that it does not come as a shield like the touch display we were using so far. This way, we can connect the display to any board, the Arduino Pro mini, the STM32, the ESP8266 and the ESP32. This is very important because we now have a low-cost display that we can use with every board. Until now, the only touch display we could use with these boards were the Nextion displays which are more expensive, and to be honest even though I use them from time to time, I don’t really like them. Now let’s see how to connect this display to an Arduino Uno. The first 9 pins of the display are the power pins and the SPI pins. So, if we connect only the first 9 pins of the display, we can use it as a regular display without touch functionality. The display uses 3.3-volt logic levels and unfortunately, it is not 5V tolerant. So, we need to use some 10K resistors if we want to drive it with a board that uses 5V logic levels like the Arduino Uno. -------------------- LIBRARIES -------------------- 📥 Adafruit GFX: 📥 Adafruit ILI9341: 📥 URtouch: -------------------- CODE OF THE PROJECT -------------------- 📥 -------------------- EUREKA 2018 QUIZ GAME -------------------- You can download my latest Android Game which is called Eureka here: 📥 -------------------- MORE PROJECTS -------------------- Arduino Datalogger: Arduino Weather Station Project: Arduino Nokia 5110 LCD Display: Arduino OLED display tutorial: DIY Arduino: -------------------- ABOUT EDUC8S.TV -------------------- is a Youtube channel and website which is dedicated to developing high-quality videos about DIY hardware and software projects.
