The 800x480px screen is driven by an FT812 graphic controller which is supported in Visual TFT, the GUI design tool for rapid development of user interfaces.
Resistive touchscreens have a higher resistance to dust and water compared to capacitive screens. They can also be used with a gloved finger. Those two features make them a better option for applications where a more robust user interface is required.
The connector uses an SPI/QSPI interface. To use it with various MikroElektronika hardware, a Riverdi clickadapter board is available (interface between the connector on the display and a mikroBUS™ socket).
