Connecting the ITDB02-2.4S TFT LCD up to the Iteadstudio Mega (2560) only needed the SCK/MISO/MOSI connections moving to the dedicated pins rather than the D13/D12/D11 pins used on the Uno – the standard example code can be used. As can be seen from the image above I coded up a simple numeric keypad with basic de-bouncing to test it out a little more.

The missing headers have been added to the Iteaduino MEGA so I can hook up the LCD when I get back to it.

Whilst I had the soldering iron out I also added the supplied female headers and then decided to add some pin headers to the Iteaduino Lite. I had a selection of “blue”, yellow and white pin headers in the parts bin along with the standard black from a previous Iteadstudio order so decided to use a few of those.

The Iteaduino MEGA 2560 arrived.

The plan was to hook it up to an LCD and at least get something displayed on the screen, unfortunately that isn’t going to happen just yet as the I/O pins I planned to use (PA7/8) are in the unpopulated area.
