Usage of a TFTLCD with Arduino

hi everyone. In this topic , i will share my exrerience about an TFTLCD. I finally managed to work mine. Maybe same of you can have same problems as mines. First of all i want to say where i bought my TFTLCD. I bougth this screen from This website is useful to buy electronics components. Anyway i ordered an 3.5′ TFTLCD for my ARDUINO MEGA 2560 R3. From the info of screen(mcufriend) is says; ” 3.5 inch TFT LCD Screen For Arduino MEGA 2560 Board Description: Parameters:

Dimension :3.5inch

Controller :R61581

Resolution: 480×320

data bits: 8 -16

Interface pin number :37 pin Distance:1 mm Board Colour: Red ”





the problem was that ;

* it was actually 3.2inches

* controller was ili9327

* in wasn’t compatible with utft library (1)

* for this screen, suppliers using a library after modified and without any permission from developer (H.K.) After lots of try i contacted with supplier and send me an old and modified UTFT library. It works barely. I have done what i want to do for my project. I won’t add the files of modified UTFT library or won’t give the name of supplier. But best way getting the files is from the supplier. If you are confused about ordering an TFTLCD choose a proper one from (1) Henning Karlsen’s website. “UTFT_Supported_display_modules_&_controllers”. Proper codes of lcd has at website of Henning Karlsen’s (1). So have a nice project to you. (1) – UTFT Library is an ” Arduino and chipkit Universal TFT display library ” that created and developed by Henning Karlsen. Further more information visit :
