4D Systems has put together a Starter Kit for the uLCD-43PTU-AR Arduino Display Module Pack, to provide all the components needed for new users to 4D Systems' range of Display Modules.

Specifications Top

The Arduino Display Module Pack enables an Arduino user to quickly connect the 4D Arduino Adapter Shield to their Arduino, connect the 5 way cable between the Adapter and the Display Module, and be connected in seconds to start programming their new 4D Systems Display.

The uLCD-43PT-AR has a comprehensive range of serial commands ready to be received from the Arduino, to draw primitives such as lines, rectangles, circles and text, displaying images, playing sound and logging data to uSD card.

The uLCD-43PT-AR includes two parts uLCD-43PT LCD Display Specifications
  • Display Features
    • Low-cost 4.3" LCD-TFT display graphics user interface solution.
    • 480 x 272 QVGA resolution, RGB 65K true to life colors, TFT screen with Integrated 4-Wire Resistive Touch Panel.
    • Easy 5 pin interface to any host device: VCC, TX, RX, GND, RESET
    • Powered by the 4D-Labs PICASO processor (also available as separate OEM IC)

Arduino Board Compatibility
  • Arduino Duemilanove, Uno and Leonardo have been tested and work correctly.
  • Arduino Mega – 1280 and 2560 both tested and work correctly.
  • Leaf Labs Maple – Untested, However it has RX (RX2) and TX (TX2) in the right place and should work with matching software.
  • Intel Galileo – Works correctly.
  • Olimex Clones– Untested, If they have the right pins in the right places, they should work. If they can run Arduino sketches and use Arduino libraries then they should be OK.
  • Arduino Yun – Not Compatible currently. The Yun does not have a serial port available. The onboard serial port is tied to the WiFi feature. Software Serial can be an option however requires jumpers, but won’t be compatible with ViSi-Genie as that doesn’t work with Software Serial.
  • Any Arduino clone should work. However some 3.3V clones require external power as they don’t all supply 5V which the displays require.
