Pin Configuration~

Pin Function ESP32 Pin Config Name Display Pin
1 Module Ground GND GND
2 Module Power 3.3v 3V3 VCC
3 SPI Clock GPIO18 TFT_SCLK CLK
4 Data Input GPIO23 TFT_MOSI MOSI
5 LCD Reset line GPIO15 TFT_RST RES
6 Data Command control GPIO5 TFT_DC DC
7 Backlight GPIO21 TFT_BCKL BLK
8 Data Output GPIO19 TFT_MISO MISO
9 Chip Select GPIO26 TFT_CS CS1
10 Touch Select GPIO17 TOUCH_CS CS2
11 Touch Interrupt N/C TOUCH_IRQ PEN

SPI MISO, MOSI and SCLK are shared between the touch controller and the LCD controller.

Custom build~

Define a custom environment in platformio_override.ini and add a new esp32_ili9341_spi entry under extra_default_envs =

If you've wired pins differently, change the values below.
