Add some jazz & pizazz to your project with a color touchscreen LCD. This TFT display is big (3.5" diagonal) bright (6 white-LED backlight) and colorful! 480x320 pixels with individual RGB pixel control, this has way more resolution than a black and white 128x64 display, and double our 2.8" TFT. As a bonus, this display has a resistive touchscreen attached to it already, so you can detect finger presses anywhere on the screen.
Make your very own open-source, Raspberry Pi linux-powered digital snappy camera with built in rechargeable battery! The SnapPiCam Raspberry Pi Digital Camera is a cool project showing what you can be done with a Raspberry Pi, PiTFT and acrylic enclosure. This is a fairly advanced project, for people who are very comfortable with soldering, assembly, Raspberry Pi hacking, etc! Inside is the 5 megapixel Raspberry Pi camera, this can be either the standard version or the Noir Infrared-sensitive edition. Power comes from a rechargeable 1200mAh LiPo battery. The battery is recharged via a Mini-B USB cable plugged into the built-in LiPo charger. A 2.8" TFT + Touchscreen at the back allows access to the camera's GUI.
Now you can add eInk displays to your favorite single-board Linux computers! This tutorial will show you how to wire and run the RePaper eInk displays in the Adafruit shop on a Raspberry Pi or BBB. Learn how to assemble and program the RePaper eInk Development Board. These daylight readable displays are excellent for data-logging applications, outdoor displays, or any other ultra-low power project.
These big, bright displays measures 1.27" or 1.5" diagonal and have 128x96 or 128x128 RGB pixels. The OLED display technology gives you vivid, high contrast images and does not require a backlight. With16-bit resolution for each pixel, you can display a wide range of colors. The SSD1351 driver chip has a 4-wire SPI interface. We also include an on-board boost converter and built-in level shifting for compatibility with both 3.3v and 5v microcontrollers. A micro SD card holder lets you store bitmaps and other data. Our library includes example code to show you how!
The 1.3" SHARP Memory LCD display is a cross between an eInk (e-paper) display and an LCD. This daylight-readable display has the ultra-low power usage of eInk and the fast-refresh rates of an LCD. This model has a matt silver background, and pixels show up as little mirrors for a silver-reflective display, a really beautiful and unique look.
Adding a character display to your project or computer has never been easier with the new Adafruit USB or TTL serial backpack! This custom-designed PCB sits on the back of any 'standard' character LCD (16x2 or 20x4 sized) and does everything you could want: printing text, automatic scrolling, setting the backlight, adjusting contrast, making custom characters, turning on and off the cursor, etc. It can even handle our RGB backlight LCDs with full 8-bit PWM control of the backlight.
Add some jazz & pizazz to your project with a color touchscreen LCD. This TFT display is big (2.8" diagonal) bright (4 white-LED backlight) and colorful (16-bit 262,000 different shades)! 240x320 pixels with individual pixel control, this has way more resolution than a black and white 128x64 display. As a bonus, this display has a resistive touchscreen attached to it already, so you can detect finger presses anywhere on the screen. Learn how to use this LCD with an Arduino.
This is a quick tutorial for our 84x48 pixel monochrome LCD display. These displays are small, only about 1.5" diameter, but very readable due and comes with a backlight. This display is made of 84x48 individual pixels, so you can use it for graphics, text or bitmaps. These displays are inexpensive, easy to use, require only a few digital I/O pins and are fairly low power as well.
Spice up your Arduino project with a beautiful large touchscreen display shield with built in microSD card connection. This TFT display is big (2.8" diagonal) bright (4 white-LED backlight) and colorful (18-bit 262,000 different shades)! 240x320 pixels with individual pixel control. It has way more resolution than a black and white 128x64 display. As a bonus, this display has a resistive touchscreen attached to it already, so you can detect finger presses anywhere on the screen. This tutorial will teach you how to use this shield with your Arduino.
