Kitronix (KENTEC ELECTRONICS) 3.5" TFT color display (320 x 240 pixel) with touch screen - FS-K350QVG-V2-FThis color TFT is manufactured by Kitronix (Dong guan) Ltd. [now known as KENTEC ELECTRONICS] and is used in the Luminary Micro (Texas Instruments) IDM-L35 demonstration kit Stellaris 3.5-inch Landscape Intelligent Display Module RDK.
The display has an integrated graphics controller (SSD2119 or equivalent) making it easy to control from most general purpose microcontrollers via 8, 16 or 18 bit parallel port or SPI interfaces.
It has an operating temperature range from -20C to +70C and a typical luminance of 270cd/m2 when driven by 20mA (typically 19V DC).
The resistive touch screen allows simple control by using two A/D inputs from the microcontroller and is suitable for touch inputs (like key pads with finger tip touch sensing) or drawing applications using an input pen.
Full technical information can be found in the data sheet FS-K350QVG-V2-F.
Figures 1, 2 and 3 show the TFT displaying 16 bit color images.
For details of driving the display see the µTasker LCD user's guide.
There are presently 0 pieces on stock (presently out-of-stock - sorry). They are offered for sale at a unit price of CHF 36.30 (plus VAT for delivery in Switzerland). Please email with details of delivery address and urgency for full delivery price as well as payment terms or currency [eg. credit card, bank transfer].
Each TFT is new and unused. They are packed in trays of 6 pieces (but can also be delivered as single units) as shown in figure 4 below and there is a protection foil on the front of the LCD to avoid scratches and dust - this is usually removed once the TFT is used in its final assembly. They are RoHS conform. Weight about 40g each.

To make starting work with these displays easier, also suitable connectors are stocked. These are 60 pin ZIF (zero insertion force) types with top connection, equivalent to the ones used on the Luminary Micro demonstration kit board.
Figure 5 below shows these connectors and their packing, which can be ordered in small quantities to go with the TFT displays.
There are presently 321 pieces on stock [manufacturer part-number AM010030020039]. They are offered for sale at a unit price of CHF 1.45 (plus VAT for delivery in Switzerland). Please email with details of delivery address and urgency for full delivery price as well as payment terms or currency [eg. credit card, bank transfer].
In case you need fast development support please contact us to discuss HW development or SW programming support. The Kitronix TFT is supported in the µTasker project and the µTasker simulator can accurately simulate its operation, enabling rapid development of such projects.
