New in the Maker Shed: 1.8″ Color TFT Screen w/MicroSD

This 1.8″ Color TFT Screen, available in the Maker Shed, is the best way to add a small, colorful, and bright display to any project. It’s capable of displaying full 18-bit color (262,144 shades) on 128×160 pixels. 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! There’s also an on-board MicroSD card reader so you can easily load full color bitmaps right from a FAT16/FAT32 formatted MicroSD card.
