Image of Digilent's Multi-Touch Display Shield: Smart Display Digilent's multi-touch display shield is a 2.8" touchscreen display with a powerful on-board PIC32MZ microcontroller that performs graphics processing tasks. The display is a capacitive touchscreen with QVGA resolution (320×240) and two finger multi-touch support. The Multi-Touch Display System (MTDS) Firmware and the associated libraries allow users to design sleek, stylish user interfaces very quickly and effectively. The timing dependent tasks are handled by the firmware, so integrating the display into existing projects is also a snap. The key functionality provided by the libraries include the ability to draw basic shapes and text, draw images stored on microSD with binary transparency, draw buttons and easily check if they have been pressed, and check the status and location of the user's two fingers. The MTDS has been tested with Arduino, chipKIT, and Arty host boards.
