I am evaluating the possibility to use a TFT display 3.2" (TFT_320QVT_9341) that I got with the shield, it will be used only as screen, no SD o touch.
I could use it on Uno or Mega both R3 but I cannot figure how many pins I will have free with shield to be used for sensors (a few MAX 31855K).
How many free pins will I have on my arduino, Uno and Mega?
Is there a way to use the TFT without the shield?
Thx for your help
If you can count your fingers and toes, you can determine whether the Mega Shield will fit on a Uno.
Yes, you can use any shield with trailing wires. It requires a LOT of jumper wires. It requires you wiring them correctly. It will not be mechanically secure.
Thx for your reply, I don't have the shield yet. It was a real question and I cannot figure it out, sorry
Go on. Look at the photos on the website. Count the pins. Observe the pin layout.
Read the pinout descriptions.
