128x128 1.45" Full Color TFT LCD Display

Part Number: CFAF128128B1-0145T

Add some dazzle to your project with this 1.45" diagonal graphic TFT LCD display module. You'll often see this display advertised as a 1.44" Color TFT but we rounded up instead. This small display packs 128x128 full-color pixels into one square inch of active display area. It is a great choice when you need color and sharp detail while using minimal front panel space. At less than 5 grams, the display adds very little weight to handheld or wearable devices.

Thanks to the integrated Sitronix ST7735S or compatible controller, a single 3.3v source powers everything. The SPI host interface allows full read and write control of the display while using only 10 pins. The single bright white LED backlight has anode (A,+) and cathode (K, -) pins brought out on the Flexible Printed Circuit (FPC) tail. To connect, all you need is a single standard 10-conductor, 0.5 mm SMT ZIF connector.

The ZIF connector you need is a standard 10-position 0.5mm pitch.

Arduino + TFT Display Demo Using Simple SPI Interface

While the SPI interface requires only a few lines to control this TFT LCD module, it is still possible to transfer data at a rate that supports 20 FPS (Frames Per Second) screen updates -- fast enough to play a full motion video.

The project write-up on how to connect this TFT, including the Arduino Sketch is on our forum.

To get started, download the datasheet and SPI sample code. And of course, Crystalfontz is always here to help you when you integrate this display into your application.
