Adafruit # 1651 2.8 TFT Shield cross

by animal12 on Thu Jun 17, 2021 10:08 pm

apoligize if this has been covered , I didn't see anything with a search . I have a project that I plan to build . The plans call out for a Adafruit 2.8 TFT # 1651 shield . I would like to use a larger screen like a 3.5 or maybe larger , but I am just learning this stuff & would like to find a larger shield that it 100 % pin compatable with the 2.8 # 1651 . Can someong kindly point me in teh right direction . As of right now I don't have the smarts to change any code for a shield that is not 100 % compatable .
thanks

You will probably want to stick with the 2.8" TFT Shield.

The only 3.5" TFT screens we offer are not at all in the same form factor. They are not "shields", but breakout and Featherwing format.

We do of course sell larger touch screens, but you will quickly need to move off an Arduino form factor and switch over to a Pi so a completely different set of tools to adapt to.
