Breakout Board with 3.2” Resistive Touch Screen

Adafruit has introduced the 1743 breakout board, which features a 3.2″ TFT LCD with 6 white-LED backlights for high brightness and colorful picture, a resistive touchscreen, and a microSD socket. The display has a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels and can be used in 8-bit and SPI modes, where 8-bit mode needs 8-digital data lines and 4 or 5 digital control lines, while the SPI mode requires only 5-pins and is slower than the 8-bit mode. This board wraps the display with SPI connections on one end and 8-bit on the other. Both interfaces are 3V to 5V compliant with high-speed level shifters and can be used with any microcontroller.
