ArduinoLCD Makes DIY Projects Needing a Touchscreen Display Easier

by Shane McGlaun

If you’re the DIY type that likes to whip up projects using different components and an Arduino, you’ll like the new ArduinoLCD from EarthMake. This device is an integrated color LCD that fits everything you need to add a screen to your projects in one package. The little screen measures 3.5-inches and supports touch control.

The display has an integrated 16-bit GPU and comes with a mounting bracket for easy integration into your projects. The display can be programmed using EarthSEMPL making it easy to design your own user interface. The resolution of the little color screen is 320 x 240 and it supports 65,000 colors.

The display has a 500:1 contrast ratio and can operate on 6 to 9 V of power, drawing less than 200 mA. The screen has 4 MB of integrated flash memory and can operate using USB 2.0 or Arduino Shield interfaces. The ArduinoLCD is available right now for $79 (USD).

    4D systems also offer LCD modules with onboard GPU. Along with GorillaBuilderz LCD shield for Arduino and open source GorillaBuilderz Arduino libraries, you will be up and running ‘out of the box’ !
