This Nintendo DS Screen Kit joins two of our more unique products together to provide you with an easy means to equip your next project with touchscreen functionality. Inside each kit is one Nintendo DS Touchscreen and one SparkFun Touchscreen Connector Breakout. All you need to do to set this kit up is to simply attach the touchscreen’s ribbon cable into the connectors connector, solder on some headers or wires and connect it up. That’s it!
SparkFun Touchscreen Connector Breakout uses an attached 4-pin right angle ZIF connector to connect to the touchscreen’s four GPIO cable. Readings from the screen are taken by putting 5V across two of the pins with an analog to digital conversion on the other two pins therefore achieving full X and Y position recognition.
