NEW PRODUCT – 1.8 SPI TFT display, 160×128 18-bit color – ST7735R driver

Window-57

NEW PRODUCT – 1.8 SPI TFT display, 160×128 18-bit color – ST7735R driver. We just love this little 1.8″ TFT display, with true TFT color (up to 18-bits per pixel!), fine 160×128 resolution, two white LED backlight that runs on 3.3V and a very easy SPI interface that requires only 4 or 5 digital pins to send pixels to the display.

Please note! This is just the raw display, not attached to a PCB or for use with a breadboard. If you want to use this out of the box with no surface mount soldering, check out our fully assembled 1.8″ TFT breakout board with microSD card holder. This display is for experts who are comfortable soldering a surface mount display using fine pitch soldering techniques! This display also is for 3.3V use only, so be sure to use a level shifter if you’re going to use it with 5.0V microcontrollers.

Want to use this TFT display on your next project? We have it already in our Eagle library, under the name JDT-1800!

We have a full C/C++ library for the ST7735R chip that drives this display in github

In stock, shippin’ now!

  1. AWESOME! I have a digital picture frame that used this exact same screen and I have been trying to get the part # for it for a few days now. Now you have given me the part # and all the info needed to hack it! Thanks!

  2. hey k, you can always check out our eagle part.

  3. Can the backlight/plane be removed to make this translucent, for use in a micro projector?

  4. hi sparr, nope!
