Home Gallery Tutorials Links Connecting ITEAD 2.8 TFT LCD Touch Shield

to Arduino Mega 2560 using UTFT and UTOUCH by Henning Karlsen.

I used the ITEAD 2.8” TFT LCD Touch Shield with Arduino MEGA2560 and the Librarys: UTFT, UTOUCH and SD (original Arduino IDE). The LCD Shield is not pin compatible to the Arduino Mega board, so I took jumper to wire connection. Take a look at the picture to the left: The numbers outside the board are the pin numbers you have to connect on the MEGA board. Green once are for SD-Card communication via SPI, blue once for Touch and red once for TFT LCD. Use following model parameter: // Uncomment the next line for Arduino 2009/Uno //UTFT myGLCD(ILI9325D_8,19,18,17,16);   // Remember to change the model parameter to suit your display module! // Uncomment the next line for Arduino Mega UTFT myGLCD(ILI9325D_8,38,39,40,41);   // Remember to change the model parameter to suit your display module! // Initialize touchscreen UTouch  myTouch( 6, 5, 4, 3, 2);

Have fun with the display!
