Makers, developers and hobbyists searching for a small TFT display maybe interested to know that Adafruit is now stocking it’s new Color TFT Display and MicroSD Card Breakout offering users a resolution of 240 x 135 pixels. “It’s the size of your thumbnail, with glorious high res pixel color. This very very small display is only 1.14″ diagonal, packed with RGB pixels, for making very small high-density displays.”
Adafruit explains more about the small TFT display which is now available to purchase priced at $9.95 from their online store.
“We’ve been looking for a display like this for a long time – it’s so small only 1.14″ diagonal but has a high density 260 ppi, 240×135 pixel display with full-angle viewing. It looks a lot like our 0.96″ 160×80 display, but has 2.5x as many pixels. We’ve seen displays of this caliber used in smartwatches and small electronic devices but they’ve always been MIPI interface. Finally, we found one that is SPI and has a friendly display driver, so it works with any and all microcontrollers or microcomputers!”
“This lovely little display breakout is the best way to add a small, colorful and very bright display to any project. Since the display uses 4-wire SPI to communicate and has its own pixel-addressable frame buffer, it can be used with every kind of microcontroller. Even a very small one with low memory and few pins available! The 1.14” display has 240×135 16-bit full color pixels and is an IPS display, so the color looks great up to 80 degrees off axis in any direction. The TFT driver (ST7789) is very similar to the popular ST7735, and our Arduino library supports it well.”
