2560 3.2 lcd without shield possible?

Im trying to make it as thin as possible. Can a generic 3.2 lcd be used without a shield? Ive seen some done just need confirmation.

Specifically interested in this (link)

I think you should do some research on that display, particularly as the seller does not appear to be very forthcoming. The display appears to be made to plug into a Mega without a shield.

That is not a generic 3.2" display, it is a stand-alone lcd for the Mega that doesn't need a shield.

Have a look at the photos provided by the seller. You can see that the functionality of a typical shield has been integrated onto the board with three level shifting IC's as well as adding the typical SD card slot as well as the 8 pin SOP flash chip pads to hold a font IC.

The only thing the board lacks is a touch overlay.

Great thanks. Gona save me a couple bucks and a few mm in space.

Has anyone tried this exact display? Hows the refresh rate (specs might not be accurate)?

Edit:

How about this one. Does this look like it has a touch interface? Theres the four wires on the bottom if the screen that looks like it has touch. No mention in ad.

I have one of the displays from the first seller but I have not yet had time to get it working with UTFT.

The second display you mention is fairly common but there are two versions, both do in fact have touch screens.

The first was 400x240 with an ILI9327 driver. The auction you referenced says it is 480x320 yet the photos are of the earlier 400x240 version. This can determined by the number of resistor networks on the back of the card since the 400 wide display is setup for 8 bit mode, the 480 wide is 16 bit mode which requires two additional 10k resistor networks to drop the 8 additional data bits from 5 to the required 3.3 volts. Both versions work with the Mega board only and both need modifications to UTFT to get them functional with that library.

The vendor just replied. It doesn't have touch screen. They probably just used a generic photo?

Would you happen to know the resolution (not listed, google translate for their website doesn't seem to work) of the ff below and of any problems with them?

I'm not familiar with those models, sorry. Based on the listings, I would avoid them since without the driver type, it would be a guessing game to get them working. They must be stock photos as they clearly show the touch screen driver ic... Which wouldn't be there if it did not have a touch overlay. IMO, without a datasheet, it's not a usable part.

But you were able to get this working right except for the UTFT? Is it a true 480x320 lcd?

I think this is the data sheet and code for this (download using phone, couldn't with my PC) http://pan.baidu.com/s/1hqILMOO

Thanks for the info
