2.8'' TFT Touch Shield v2.0
This is a multifunctional Arduino/Seeeduino/Arduino Mega compatible resistive touch screen. It can be used as display device or sketch pad.Compared with the previous version, 2.8``TFT Touch Shield V1.0, we replaced the screen driver with a more professional chip, ILI9341 driver, providing different pin-saving SPI communication without sacrificing the data transmitting speed. Due to the communication method change, programs developed for the original version need modifications before being transplanted to the new version. With a SD card module integrated also on this shield, this shield reserves great room for other expansions to your project.
- Big screen for easy and comfortable experience
- Backlight controllable via programming
- 65k rich colors display
- SPI pin-saving communication method
- Full screen touch active range
|Working Voltage||5 V|
|Resolution||320 x 240|
- Sensor Hub
- Human Machine Interface
- Smart House

You can use the NOT USED pins to control the others module.
This getting started is based on Win10 and Arduino IDE 1.6.9
Here we will show you how this display work, we need thing as below to start.

Download Arduino Library
This library work for:
- Arduino/Genuino UNO
- Seeeduino V3/4.0/4.2
- Arduino/Genuino Mega
- Arduino Leonardo
- Seeeduino Lite/Clio/Lotus
- LinkIt ONE(Touch panel don’t work)
Click on the below button to download the library and install it (HOW TO INSTALL AN ARDUINO LIBRARY).
This library include few examples,
We use shapes example for this demo.
Connection and Upload the code
Insert the board to Seeeduino, and open your Arduino IDE. Click on File > Examples > TFT_Touch_Shield_V2-master > shapes to open the code.
Select the correct COM port and Boards(Seeeduino V4), upload the code to Seeeduino, then it’s done. If you have any question about how to start the uploading, please put had on here to get more details.
The backlight is default on always, if you want to control the backlight, you need to do some hack in the board. Please look at the back side of the board, there’s a BACKLIGHT label, and one side named ON the other side named D7. We need to cut the wire at ON side and solder D7 side. As shown below.
Then you can control the backlight via control D7.
To open backlight: digitalWrite(7, HIGH);
To close backlight: digitaWrite(7, LOW);
Please be careful when use a box cutter and soldering iron.
Help us make it better
Thank you for choosing Seeed. As one of the World's leading Open Hardware suppliers, Seeedstudio has been continuously creating good quality and diversified modules for our customers, makers and developers. As a young company, it is inevitable that few things were not handled adequately, for example, our document system. It is a little shame however true that we have been continuously receiving complaints about how hard it is to use our document system —— ugly interface, confusing content, and the URL that can never be opened etc. Here, we sincerely apologize for all the inconvenience you’ve experienced during using the old system.
It is time to say good bye to the user-unfriendly old document system now. In order to bring better experience to our users, we have launched a project to optimize the document system from the middle of 2016. The work includes:
- Replace the old WiKi system with a new one that was developed from Mkdocs, a more widely used and cooler project documentation tool.
- Review and rewrite documents for hundreds of products to make them more understandable.
- Inspect and repair all the URLs to make sure it can be linked to the right page.
Although we have tried our level best to optimize, it is still possible that few issues exist. If you find anything that needs to be corrected, You are most welcome to submit the amended version as our contributor or give us suggestions in the survey below. Do not forget to leave your email address so that we can reply.
By the way, we will feel very happy and encouraged if we receive 5 stars from you. With the help and encouragement from you, we believe that we can make this document better and better!
