Topic: The most easy to use TFT LCD for Arduino (Read 551 times) previous topic - next topic


If you have used the TFT LCD in your project, no matter the 8/16bit parallel port LCD or the SPI serial LCD, you need a huge GUI display library in your Arduino, like the UTFT library or so. If there is more than 10 pages in your project, the GUI coding will be a hell job!

It's the reason why we make this new TFT LCD module with GPU. You don't need to care about the GUI coding, you can use the WYSIWYG editor to build your GUI ,and download them into the GPU memory - than you can use the MCU to send command via UART to control the TFT LCD now. All build in objet can be control by UART command.

Just use the Serial.print() you can build the interactive UI like this:

It saves your time to code the GUI, and you don't need spend much resource of your MCU to do the display control! Ardiuno nano can do the think that you should use the MEGA before . Its price is nearly the same as the normal TFT LCD.

Touch button to control Arduino LED

Now promotion in Indiegogo! Get the early bird perk just $10 for a 2.4" smart LCD with free shipping!!!!

Interestingļ¼i wonder where the nextion editor can be download?


More about the editor you can see the updates in the indiegogo campaign page   ;D

Hmm, I think that would connect nicely to one of my ITead GBoards :) I've already contributed to the campaign for one of each display, good to see the level of interest, funded in 3 days of 40...

I think everyone's keen to see the Nextion editor though - will you consider some of us for beta testing of the software?
