I am not sure if it is a good question or not, but I want to start working on TFT LCDs. I have good experience both on T6963 and KS0108, dot matrices, but zero experience on TFTs.

Can anyone give any link or tutorial (basic / professional) on this topic? What type of driver is suitable?

    \$\begingroup\$ TFTs and STNs aren't different enough for you to worry about relearning everything. \$\endgroup\$ – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Sep 13 '13 at 19:28
  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks! But there is a big difference. STNs are easily found as modules and very easy to setup but TFT modules are not that prevalent. What scares me is that I need a driver IC for that ( that I am not sure if I would use one of those Renesa's or other parts ) and I know nothing about their theory. I searched google but there are few resources for this topic and those few are written in Chinese or awful english! \$\endgroup\$ – Antonio Burdy Sep 13 '13 at 19:37
  • \$\begingroup\$ Sure, but that's not an intrinsic difference between TFT and STN. You can also find bare STN panels as well. \$\endgroup\$ – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Sep 13 '13 at 19:38
  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes that's correct. Which driver is the best or the easiest? does it need a separate back light? \$\endgroup\$ – Antonio Burdy Sep 13 '13 at 19:59
  • \$\begingroup\$ Have you purchased a specific part? does it have a data sheet? ATMEL and Roenesa have good parts but let us know what is your need? \$\endgroup\$ – Aug Sep 13 '13 at 20:03

This is a very good and handy module. The biggest advantage is its documentation and very strong library both for AVR and ARM: TFT01-5 http://www.elecfreaks.com/store/50-tft-lcd-screen-module-tft0150-p-420.html

This company has TFT modules and English datasheets.
