Title: Big TFT/Oled screen
Post by: Kumalix on Jun 17, 2018, 09:15 pm
Hi,

For a project a had in mind i need a really big screen with no touch.

Does anyone know what the biggest screen format a arduino IDE compatible microcontrole can handle?
Like Wemos D1 mini Pro or Teensy 3.x??

Just can't find anything lager in the online stores than the 3.2 inch. 
I i'm hoping to drive at least 5 inch but the lager the better.

Thanks a lot for your help guys!
I'm always thankful for the help!

What do you need to display on this screen?

I have made Arduino display info on 40"+ TV screens using the TVOut library. But the picture is only black & white and the resolution is low.

the lager the better.
Freudian slip?

I need to display Temperature and humidity sensor values.
No pictures only big tekst.
But needs to be green en Red. If a treshold is exided.

Whats is the max TFT screen that a fast micro controler can handle?
And where to buy something like this?

In the netherlands max tft screen that you can buy online is 3.2 inch.

Hope someone can help..

You could make some large 7-segment displays out of ws2812b led strips. They can be as large as you like and change to any colour you like.

Or get an inexpensive TV set with hdmi input and drive it with raspberry pi.

Here (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/7-TFT-LCD-Display-Touch-Screen-Module-SSD1963-Fr-Arduino-AVR-STM32-Raspberry-Pi/382142557731?epid=17018422413&hash=item58f978ae23:g:mnYAAOSw8d5ZU1yH) is a 7" display that says it can be used with Arduino.
