ESP32-S3 Parallel TFT with Touch~


The configuration for this board is under development and not finilized yet.


The Makerfabs ESP32-S3 Parallel TFT Touch development board incorporates a 3.5”, 4.0” or 4.3” capacitive touch display which makes it a very suitable platform for any openHASP project.

At the back sits an ESP32-S3-WROOM module with 16MB of flash and PSram. There is also an SD-card slot, USB-C connectors and two expansion ports.

Backlight Control~

The backlight of the 3.5" model can be controlled by PWM on pin GPIO45.

The backlight on the 4.0" model is always on and can not be controlled.

The backlight of the 4.3" model can be controlled by PWM on pin GPIO02 if the PCB is v1.3 only. With PCB v2.0 the backlight can not be adjusted and the screen is always on.
