Dave Pentecost got his Adafruit 1.8″ TFT LCD working with his Arduino Esplora. He then posted his findings over on the Makers, Hackers, Artists & Engineers Google+ Community.
I got my 1.8″ TFT LCD today, and after some fiddling with pin assignments it is working on the Esplora with the Adafruit libraries and the graphics test sketch.
Here is the change you have to make in the setup of the sketch:
#define sclk 15
#define mosi 16
#define cs 7
#define dc 0
#define rst 1
This lovely little display breakout is the best way to add a small, colorful and 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!
