Wiring a TFT 1.8 Display for an Arduino Project

The 1.8 inch TFT display is a very economical easy to wire display for your Arduino projects. This display works with Adafruit graphics library which you can upload to your Arduino sketch from the following link https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-GFX-Library/archive/master.zip .

The display may require you to solder female header pins to the display in order to use the SD card to store images for your display. After soldering these pins, you can wire the 4 female header pins of the display to your micro-controller using a solderless breadboard and jumper cables
