Educational / Maker


Since our inception we have not only supplied many industries their first TFT LCD solutions but also educational institutions, DIY, Makers and engineers working on their weekend projects. We love sharing our passion for display technology through the Maker market, student internships and sponsorship of the OC Arduino / Rasberry Pi meetup. Our founders and engineering staff live and breathe technology. We strive to provide simple cost effective easy to use solutions to spur creative use of display technology. Search the products below on youtube to see what Makers have already done. What will you make? While the products below are mainly shield, cape and Arduino combo products be sure to check our LCD kits section for our value priced Super Kits (SK) with world beating price, performance and value that are ideal for Maker product like the Rasberry Pi that have HDMI outputs.


The arLCD combines the best of ezLCD-3xx and the Arduino UNO. The arLCD is not just an LCD and you should not confuse it with a snails pace 2.8 LCD shield that uses almost all your I/O pins!

arLCD is a full smart ezLCD GPU with the Arduino Uno R3 on the same PCB in a thin, easy to integrate package with a panel mount bezel available in the near future.

The 3.5 has 64% more display area than a 2.8 LCD. The arLCD combines the Arduino and the award winning ezLCD into a single product, ready to accept all Arduino compatible shields. The arLCD can be used in many applications such as thermostat control, lighting controls, home security, audio control, water level gauge, robotics, operational control, and button switches. 

The 300 nit 320 x 240 LCD used the The Tianma TM035KBHO2 industrial display that has been available for over 5 years from EarthLCD.  While great for educational purposes this is an OEM quality built and tested product that is currently designed into volume medical, home automation and instrumentation. Pricing, specifications and availability are subject to change.

The arLCD is part of the 'Arduino At Heart' Program which means that Arduino LLC gets a royalty on every unit sold.

For long term projects consider using an ezLCD-3xx with an external arduino with an ezLCD-304 for 4.3" size or ezLCD-405 for 5.6" size.
