The touch IC is ADS7843 , and touch interface is included in the 40 pins breakout. It is the version of product only with touch screen and touch controller.

The SainSmart 3.2 TFT LCD shield works in 3.3V voltage level and you need to use cables to connect with Arduino Mega. And this shield can help you out of the bothers to use other cables. You just need to plug the module to Mega through this shield.This shield supports both 16 bit mode. And Mega board has enough pins for using SD card and touch function at the same time. It also has an adjustable button for contrast of the LCD display.

Only been playing with it for ten minutes, so i'll figure it out in time.

I have searched the internet gone to the sainsmart website and downloaded their sketches but have yet to see this display work.

I highly recommend this package for anyone wanting to get into Arduino development or wanting a touchscreen.

I wanted to submit this review to help out anyone else buying this product.

I used this with an arduino mega, the lcd library works very well, while the touch screen took some research to get working.

The libraries used for this are called UTFT for the lcd, ITDB02_Touch for the touch screen, and tinyFat/UTFT_tinyFat for the SD card reader.
once downloaded, open the ITDB02_Touch.h in textedit and change "#include WProgram.h" to "#include Arduino.h", do the same thing in the file ITDB02_Touch.cpp.
Now the sample sketches will work for you.

Once figuring this out, this product does work pretty well.

Nick

If you are looking to get into Arduino development or are wanting to expand your existing collection, this is the perfect item for you. You get a great value for your money:

SainSmart Mega 2560 board (Arduino clone) ($33)
SainSmart TFTP display with touch screen and full sized SD card slot ($25)
SainSmart TFTP Display adaptor ($15)
Short USB cable

I spent $46 for this setup, so the value is obvious.

The Mega 2560 clone worked perfectly, the display worked perfectly and the adapter board mated them properly. I had purchased a Seeed 3.2" display at Radio Shack for $49. It had many issues and I returned it and used the money to buy this setup. This display is much faster than the Seeed display and the drivers were very easy to locate and install. Just google "UTFT drivers henningkarlsen" and get all of the UTFT drivers. Henning has several more drivers on his site, go ahead and get them all. They are very easy to use and configure. To use the drivers with this particular board (they are "universal drivers") use this setting for the board type:

UTFT myGLCD(ITDB32S,38,39,40,41); // the ITB32s and correct pins for Mega shield

So in summary:

Pros:

1. Great value for the money
2. Everything worked great

Cons:
1. Not a "real" Arduino. You'll have to decide for yourself how important this is to you.

The nice thing about SainSmart is that they admit that they are cloning the Arduino boards. Most of the boards available on Amazon are counterfeits and the sellers are not particularly upfront about this. These counterfeit boards exactly copy the Arduino boards, definitely graying the area between legitimacy and piracy. SainSmart clearly marks their boards as clones.

OK, I do have a couple of complaints. Actually the dsplay itself is a nice one. Bright and clear with bright crisp colors. That part I am very happy with. There are two things that do hurt it though. First, it is incredibly slow. I'm sure this has to do with the data bus more than the display. Second, it completely occupies your Mega. There are alot of un-used pins that I would really like to use to interface sensors, inputs, and outputs to but the display shield does not break them out where you can use them. If you just want a cool display to play with, go for it but by blocking every single pin on a mega it is not really all that useful.

Number of issues:

The joint must be weak as the LCD display is grainy. If I jiggle it, it clears up for a fraction of second, then back to grainy.

Touch screen calibration was way off, when I tried to re-calibrate, all attempts failed - perhaps due to bad soldering?

Returning unit.

This LCD is very sharp and looks great. Probably the best one I have used for Arduino projects so far.

I will list the things I found that prevented it being a '5 star', but don't let this scare you away.
-Coding for it isn't as straight forward, so be prepared to spend some time learning the sample code and a lot of trial and error
-the LCD, when connected to the shield, is unsupported on the non-connector side, so it is a little awkward without a mount. Especially if you are looking at using the touch screen
-the touch screen is a little unresponsive when 'drawing' (broken lines, inconsistent pressure, etc), but works great if you are looking more for just 'press to select' type applications.

First application I used this on was subscribing to a local weather twitter feed and having this display current conditions with a separate LED that would alert to weather warnings. The touch screen was only used to manually refresh. With a couple of icons stored on the SD card, this display looks wonderful. I would highly suggest this being in your 'tool box' for any hobbyist.

Great product - got exactly what I wanted. I have been looking for LCD displays for a while, and it was hard finding one big enough.

The product works fine. I have not yet tried to build my own code, but the company code works fine. I wish that the company develop an example of how to display digital measurement from a sensor to the screen using the product, but it is not necessarily, because one can figure it out. Thanks

The touch screen is adequate for most prototyping projects, especially if used with a stylus. It's great for a keypad. There are two working example sketches, one for the touch screen and another for the lcd.

Check out the libraries at [...] for some good examples of how to program the shield. (The 16-bit libraries are a little smaller and quicker than the UTFT libraries.)

A large number of the unused pins on the Mega were left open by the shield. This is good because you can put in right-angle connectors and still use them. Most LCD shields cover them even though they don't need them and they are unreachable behind the LCD board.

It's particular about what SD cards will work, you might have to try a few. Use SD-only, not SDHC.

Contact Customer service through Amazon for better service, there seems to be a disconnect on the website. They were quick to help out when I had a problem. Thanks.
