Title: MKR1300 Compatibilities
Post by: AlexisP on Jun 04, 2019, 09:38 am
Hello Arduino's members ! :)

I create this topic to get some informations about the MKR1300 module.
In fact, I would like to know if there is a way to use a TFT Touch screen with the MKR board ? If it is possible, can someone tell me what I need to buy ?
If my question isn't clear, I explain my problem below:

For my project, I need to use a Touchscreen, to get informations from the LoRaWAN network and to save those informations on an SD card.

That's why I need to know if the MKR1300 board is working with a TFT Touchscreen.
I have some ideas, but not very concrete. I was thinking about a Grove board on which I can connect the MKR board AND the Touchscreen. In addition, I can connect a RTC module on the Grove board.

All answers are welcome !

Hi Alexis
It might be a little late. But I thought I would still contribute.
The MKRWAN 1300 has a I2C and SPI ports. Try finding a TFT screen that has any of these outputs. Then you can plug them into the GPIO ports on the MKRWAN, and integrate them from there.
I have not done this specifically on the MKRWAN. But I used this method to put a touch screen on an ESP32 board
