1.8" TFT LCD Shield board v2

Thu May 09, 2013 8:25 pm

Hi,
as discussed here
http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 64&t=43285
, I,ve improved the layout and incorporated a cheaper 16-pin display, which is functionally the same as the previously used LCD module.

Image

Passing on the cheaper cost, I am please to supply the module at £16 plus postage, payable via bank transfer or paypal, pm me for details and availability.
Thanks,
Texy

Hi Texy,

I have had my PI for a week now and I am keen to get my hands on your "1.8inch TFT LCD + Switch Shield" add-on boards.

Do you have a unit for sale.

My son lives in London and he is coming to visit me here in South Africa so he could bring the display with him

Your feedback would be appreciated

Hi Texy...

Can't seen to find the PM option, maybe it's disabled for people who haven't posted before?

Could you please contact me, I'd like to purchase one of these :)

Hi Shane,
To you and any new forum members, if you can see your post, you can pm. Your first post needs moderator approval, but once that is done, you can then send pm's ;-)

Hello texy,

I have a couple of questions.
  • 1. How much power does this shield use?
    • a. nothing displayed
    • b. displaying
  • 2. I am using 3 heatsinks on my Rapsberry Pi. Doe they interfere with the size of your shield?
  • 3. Is access to the remaining GPIO pins possible?
  • 4. Do you know of any case that fits this shield-Pi-combination's characteristics?
Thank you very much!

I need to check that and report back. I believe it will be less than 50mA, but I will confirm.

How high do the heatsinks go? The shield pcb rests on top of the ethernet port connector (on a model B).
smx wrote:

Yes - they are made available on a replication of the GPIO port on the shield pcb - you can just see part of the silkscreen through the top left mounting hole of the TFT pcb in the picture.

Yes - someone has fitted one to a pibow case here : http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 77#p356770
I am also in discussion with a case designer, so watch this space ;)

Hi,
just to confirm the current requirements - when the Pi is first switched on, and the display is uninitialised, the current drawn by the display + backlight is 28.1mA.
Once the display is initialised during the boot sequence, current goes down to 26.2mA. It doesn't matter if the display is dark or white, it draws the same. This is from the +3.3v rail.
Hope this helps.

Hi,

I was wondering, do you provide the kit except the LCD? That'd be great for me.

Hi,
I can do yes. Do you mean a kit, where you solder it all yourself (without the LCD supplied)?
I am out of pcb's at the moment, but they are on the way.....

Indeed :) I'd like to get everything related to the kit except the 16 pin LCD itself, I'll solder them all myself.

So, how can I know when you re-stock the PCB board and anything related to kit?

Can you tell me how many characters can be displayed on this screen?

I'm looking to display twitter messages and strugling to find an interface display that can show the 140 character messages. I'm currently experimenting with a 20 character x 4 lines LCD

Hi,
Well it's a graphic display with 128 x 160 resolution. This means it uses fonts just like Windows for example, rather than a character display like the 20 x 4 you mentioned. So typically you could fit typically 26 x 16 character on screen assuming 5 x 7 font. See the pygame example for an example if displaying text.
