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.

Key Features:
  • Small, Full Color TFT (1.3" diagonal)
  • Low voltage (3.3v for logic and backlight)
  • SPI interface
  • IPS (ultra-wide viewing angle)
  • 18-position ZIF tail

1.3" 240x240 Full-Color LCD Display with Adapter Board
Part Number: CFAF240240A3-013TN-E1

This TFT kit comprises one of our smallest TFT displays and an adapter board that breaks the tail connections out to a simple 2x5 10-position header. The adapter board includes a backlight driver, so only a single 3.3v power input is required to bring up the display.

The adapter board is specifically designed for use with this display, so it fits directly behind the display with no PCB overlap. The display is a 1.3", full color, IPS display that looks incredibly sharp.

This little kit would be great in a wearable, as a small gauge or indicator, or anywhere you can think to integrate a small, full-color display.

We also offer a full Seeeduino kit to easily bring up this module.

240x240 1.3" TFT Display Dev Kit
Part Number: CFAF240240A3-013TN-E1-2

This is a TFT Seeeduino kit for our tiny TFT with adapter board. This kit includes the small TFT mounted to an adapter board, already connected to a Seeeduino loaded with demonstration code. That means all you need to do when the kit arrives is plug a USB cord into power to see a functioning display.

The included TFT is a crisp 1.3", full color, 240x240 IPS display. The adapter board is designed specifically for this TFT display, so there is no PCB overlap. Plus the board includes a backlight driver so the entire display, including the backlight, can be driven with a single 3.3v power input.
