Port of Adafruit TFT FeatherWing - 3.5" Touchscreen for Particle Argon/Boron/Xenon

The Adafruit 3.5" TFT FeatherWing has a touch screen display on the front and a socket for any Feather on the back, including the Particle Argon, Boron, and Xenon. You can find technical information at Adafruit.

There aren't any wires necessary, but it does use the following pins:

  • SD (SD card CS) = D2
  • RT (Touch screen CS) = D3
  • TFT_CS (display) = D4
  • D/C (display) = D5

This library is just a wrapper around two other libraries:

Once the SdFat library is modified to support the mesh devices it will be added as well.

You don't need to use this library - if you only need the display and not the touchscreen, for example, you can use the Adafruit_ILI9341_RK directly directly.

There are two Adafruit examples:

  • examples/graphicstest_featherwing
  • examples/touchpaint_featherwing

If you are looking for the 2.4" TFT Featherwing, check out Adafruit_ILI9341_RK instead.
