NHD-4.3CTP-SHIELD-L | Arduino Shield with TFT Display | FTDI FT801 Embedded Video Engine | On-board Audio Power Amplifier | 4.3" Standard LCD | Capacitive Touchscreen | Discontinued EOL Product

Engineered in Elgin IL USA, we designed this Arduino shield with our 4.3" capacitive touch standard TFT display for effortless touch development. This shield is ready to mate with classic Arduino boards such as Uno, Mega and Leonardo by connecting directly to the back of the shield. This greatly reduces software and hardware development time and simplifies the design process. No extra controller boards or messy cables required, providing a much easier and simpler experience developing with a touchscreen TFT. This shield features a 480x272 resolution display, capacitive touchscreen, and FT801 embedded video engine by FTDI which may be used to develop and demonstrate the functionality of the FT801 IC and our 4.3" touch TFT displays. It also includes PWM to control the dimming of the backlight and generates audio output with an on-board power amplifier. A microSD card slot built-in allows additional storage space for more complex code. This will eliminate any memory constraints of the Arduino board.

This display that is assembled to the Arduino shield has been discontinued and is no longer available for purchase, however an alternative option is available: LEARN MORE

Quality Standards

At Newhaven Display we strive every day to provide our customers with the highest quality products. This means Quality, Engineering, and Manufacturing teams are aligned to exceed your expectations.

Our customers should expect their products to meet or exceed the following standards:

All Products

Reliability Testing Customers can expect all production parts to meet or exceed operational requirements over temperature, humidity, and vibration.
Glass Cleanliness Customers can expect glass to be protected by liners and presented mindful of cleanliness standards. This means glass will be clean of contaminants, fingerprints, and other foreign material.
Bezel Appearance Bezels will be uniformly painted free of foreign materials and distracting cosmetic blemishes. Our standards maintain a clean scratch-free surface.
PCB Appearance PCB’s are delivered with long-term reliability in mind. Finishes are free of bubbles, foreign contaminants, and meet all UL fire requirements. PCB materials will always be delivered within industry norms. PCB edges will be cleanly cut and void of burrs.
Soldering Soldering of all leaded and SMT components is consistent in providing the mechanical security and electrical connectivity.
Consistency Our manufacturing and inspection processes ensure product consistency from lot to lot. This means orders processed over the years will continually meet your expectations. We do this by exacting manufacturing specifications, with attention to detail in our processes, and by comparing to the golden units.
Product Integrity Quality in product manufacturing ensures integrity in construction. Customers can expect tight assembly without worry of loose parts or missing material. Our products will meet all environmental expectations including temp, humidity, & vibration conditions.
Glass Color While normal variations of glass color may occur (due to manufacturing tolerances), Newhaven Display maintains color compliance per internal approved color charts. These charts are maintained to ensure any minor glass deviations are identified and corrected as needed.
ESD Protection & Safety All devices are designed and handled in consideration of ESD protection. This includes ESD-SAFE packaging within anti-static bags, wraps, and trays. Customers are reminded to always follow ESD safety to best protect the devices.
