OpenMV LCD Shield


Elmwood Electronics has stopped accepting orders. This product might be available at PiShop.ca. Please check this blog post about our recent team merger.

The LCD Shield gives your OpenMV Cam the ability to display what it sees on-the-go while not connected to your computer. It features a 1.8" 128x160 16-bpp (RGB565) TFT LCD display with a controllable backlight. Your OpenMV Cam's firmware has built-in support for controlling the LCD Shield using the lcd module.


The LCD Shield is great for robotic applications where you need to debug your OpenMV Cam in the field - like when debugging a line following robot. For example, you can use the LCD Shield to display the frame buffer after you've thresholded and drawn markups on an image.
