Arduino & SSD1963 Controller

Hello Everyone.

how can i use 7" LCD + SSD1963 controller with arduino? (without shield)

thanks.

Yes, if you choose a 3.3V Arduino like the Due.
There are a lot of wires to connect. Seriously, it is always worth using an Adapter Shield.

These are available for both Mega2560 and Due.

I do not have a 7" display. I believe that the backlight takes a LOT of current.

Yeah, usually around 500-800mA. Therefore Arduino board regulator (usually LM1117) will overheat and eventually burn if used for feed backlight..
