240x240 Color TFT LCD Display

Part Number: CFAF240240A3-013TN

This full-color, IPS, TFT LCD module is a beautiful high-density display. It boasts crisp, bright images over a 4-wire SPI interface. And don't worry about SPI being too slow, check out the video below showing a video played on this display and the demo code on GitHub.

At 1.3" diagonal, this little TFT is perfect for devices that need full-color graphics in an ultra-compact form factor. This display is the ideal fit for a next-generation wearable device.

Is power a concern? The Sitronix ST7789H2 controller has Content Adaptive Backlight Control (CABC) which allows the backlight power to be automatically minimized.

Looking for a thin display? This TFT is just 1.5mm thick - less than 1/16 inch!

For a slightly larger wearable display, check out the 128x128 1.45" Full-Color TFT LCD Display, or check out our list of small displays.

The 18-pin ZIF connector makes the connection to a PCB as easy as mounting any other SMT component. No special soldering operation is needed. We even carry 18-position, 0.5mm pitch ZIF connectors to go with it.

Want an even easier way to bring this display up? Get this small TFT with a breakout board module or the full Seeeduino development kit for a plug-and-play option.

This fantastic full-color TFT display requires only a single 3.3v supply for all the display functions. The backlight's anode (A,+) and cathode (K, -) pins are brought out independently to provide flexibility in the backlight driving circuit design, but also uses only 3.3v.

This small, low-power, full color, high-density display is a perfect 240x240 LCD for use with an Arduino, as wearables, or in any low voltage or battery-powered device.
