WHY THEY STAND OUT

Available in six different variations, each shield features a 480x272 resolution, 4.3" TFT, in the form of a Sunlight Readable, Premium (MVA) or Standard display model with a 5-point multi-touch capacitive or 4-wire resistive touchscreen. These shields feature PWM (Pulse Width Modulation), to easily control the dimming of the display's backlight LEDs. Additionally, each shield generates audio output with an on board power amplifier and includes the FT801 or FT800 embedded video engines. These key features make these shields the superior option when developing with touch TFTs.

SAVE TIME AND MONEY WITH OPEN SOURCE HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE.

By utilizing Arduino’s vastly growing community, engineers can take advantage of shared code developed by other engineers as well as code created by Newhaven’s engineers. To help engineers get started with the 4.3” Arduino Shields, we share a repository of example code to get any engineer up and running as soon as the product arrives.

EFFORTLESS DEVELOPMENT WITH A TOUCHSCREEN TFT ALL AT YOUR FINGERTIPS.

The 4.3" Arduino Shields were designed by Newhaven engineers for classic Arduino boards such as the UNO, Mega and Leonardo. Each Arduino board connects directly to the back of the shield, greatly reducing software and hardware development time and simplifying the design process. There are no extra controller boards or messy cables required, providing a much faster and effortless experience developing with a touchscreen TFT.

Since the Arduino Development boards are powerful tools, a micro SD slot also comes as a built-in standard allowing additional storage space for more complex code. This eliminates any memory constraints of the Arduino board.

CAPACITIVE OR RESISTIVE TOUCH?

Compare each touchscreen and decide which option fits your application better.

5-POINT MULTI-TOUCH CAPACITIVE

  • Built-in controller with I²C interface
  • 6H hardness, >1 million touches
  • 82% light transmittance
  • 6mA at 3.3V power supply
  • 0.03mA sleep mode
  • Touch, lift, directional, zoom gestures

4-WIRE RESISTIVE

  • Operates at any level of humidity
  • 3H hardness, >1 million touches
  • Cost effective
  • 6mA at 3.3V power supply
  • Operates with a stylus, pen, nail, gloved finger, etc.
