LCD displays are used to display pictures or other texts to get the status of devices or some other important information. Here, we will see the method of interfacing a 2.8inch TFT Touch Shield to Arduino UNO. A touch screen is also provided on the top of the display. Touch screen require some calibration and hence we will see the touch screen interfacing in the coming blogs. Steps for interfacing the display to Arduino UNO is given below.

Step 1 :

Assemble Arduino UNO and 2.8inch TFT Touch Shield.

Step 2 :

Connect Arduino UNO to computer.

Step 3 :

Download latest version of Arduino and source code of 2.8inch TFT Touch Shield.

Step 4 :

Extract both files.

Step 5 :

Copy and paste library files of 2.8inch TFT Touch Shield to Arduino libraries folder.

Step 6 :

Run Arduino. Copy and paste DisplayString.ino to Arduino UI.
Compile and upload code to Arduino UNO. String will be displayed if uploading is successful.

Step 7 :

Similarly, compile and upload DrawGraphic.ino to your Arduino UNO.
If uploading is successful, graphics will be displayed on the screen.
