Hardware Setup

Here's the wiring diagram for connecting the FT232H to the TFT display. A breadboard setup is fine for getting started, but it might be nice to package this up prettier if you want to really Sidekick it up.

The FT232H to TFT wiring is as follows:

  • 5V to VIN
  • GND to GND
  • D0 to SCK
  • D1 to MOSI
  • D4 to CS
  • D5 to D/C
  • D6 to RST

If you're using a different display than the 2.2" TFT make sure its in SPI mode and follow the descriptive wiring table above
