Hi all.

I wanna know if the LCD Shield for the Mega2560 is compatible with the DUE.

Or would what makes it different/not compatible?

I'm specificaly talking about this one:

Thanks!

One of main differences between Mega and Due is Due uses 3V3 data pins and Mega is 5V tolerant.
As most TFT screens are only 3V3, shields have to use level shifters between Mega and TFT, that Due don't need.
So an LCD shield for Mega is not compatible with Due !

Got it! You are right.
