Please Note: We will be relocating our shop to 6 Einstein Road, Technopark, Centurion during this weekend (26 - 28 April) and as a result we will be closed for business. As from 29 April we will be resume normal trading at our new premises.
Arduino 1.77" Display SPI Interface + SD
The Arduino Graphic LCD (GLCD) screen is a backlit TFT LCD screen with headers. You can draw text, images, and shapes to the screen with the GLCD library. There is an onboard micro-SD card slot on the back of the screen that can, among other things, store bitmap images for the screen to display.The screen's headers are designed to fit into the socket on the front of the Arduino Esplora, but it is compatible with any AVR-based Arduino (Uno, Leonardo, etc. Datasheet You can use this module with Arduino Esplora.
The Arduino TFT library extends the Adafruit GFX, and Adafruit ST7735 libraries that it is based on. The GFX library is responsible for the drawing routines, while the ST7735 library is specific to the screen on the Arduino screen. The Arduino specific additions were designed to work as similarly to the Processing API as possible. The library is backwards compatible, which means you can still use the Adafruit functions described here. The TFT library relies on the SPI library, which must be included in any sketch that uses the scree. If you wish to use the SD card, you need to include the SD library as well.
