Evolution of a Blog

This blog has evolved as I have as a maker. It starts at the beginning of my journey where I began to re-tread my tires in the useful lore of micro electronics and the open-source software that can drive them. While building solutions around micro-electronics are still an occasional topic my more recent focus has been on the 3D Printing side of making.

Arduino Nano / LCD Projects Platform - Parts List

  1. Two layer Printed CIrcuit Board (PCB)
  2. 1.8" TFT LCD with SD Card Reader/Writer
  3. Power Socket
  4. Arduino Nano
  5. Pushbuttons
  6. TFT LCD Backlight Jumper
  7. Six Pin Header (can be used to exposing connections through the case)
  8. DHT-11 Temperature/Humidity Sensor (for demonstration project)
  9. Three Connector Patch Cable (for demonstration project)
  10. Four Sixteen Pin Headers (once broken into pieces, used to mount the Arduino Nano and/or to expose its pins)
  11. Resistors for three buttons on an analog pin
  12. Back of 3D Printed Case
  13. Front of 3D Printed Case 
  14. Screws for Case
  15. Nano Reset Button Extender 
Below are the parts needed for to assemble an Arduino Nano/LCD Projects Platform assuming you have purchased the PCB and printed your own case but are sourcing the rest of the parts yourself:

ITEM eBay Link (UK) Search Terms
1.8" TFT LCD with SD Card Reader Link 1.8" Serial SPI TFT LCD Display Module +128X160 PCB Adapter Power IC SD Socket
Power Socket Link 2.1mm x 5.5mm Round Panel Chasis Mount Female Socket DC Connector Jack Plug
Arduino Nano Link USB Nano V3.0 ATmega328P 5V 16M Micro-controller Board For Arduino
Pushbuttons Link Quality Momentary Tactile Push Button Switch SPST Miniature/Mini/Micro/Small PCB
Six Pin Header Link Stackable Si Pin Header for Arduino
Breakable Headers Link Gold Breakable 40 Pin Header Male Female 2.54mm Socket Connector Way SIL Single
Resistors Link 0.25W Carbon Film Resistor 10kΩ
DHT-11 Link DHT11 Digital Humidity & Temperature Sensor
Screws for Case Link Stainless Steel No2 x 1/2" Pozi Countersunk Self Tapping Screws M2.2 x 13mm
Backlight Jumper Link 2.54mm Circuit Board Shunts Short Jumper Cap
Connector Patch Cable Link Male to Female Jumper Wire Ribbon Cable Pi Pic Breadboard Arduino

  1. The links are from the eBay in the UK and may not work with the passing of time.  Hence the search terms which should return the right product regardless of what source.
  2. The Arduino Nano is shown as a China Clone but you can go more expensive!  Remember that a lot of the clones do not have a bootstrap loaded.
  3. The "Breakable Headers" are used as the source for the four 16 pin headers for the Arduino -AND- for the three pin Backlight Jumper (female for the former and male for the latter).
  4. There are a number of different 1.8" TFT LCD modules out there.   The only one that fits the PCB and case are the ones marked with "HY-1.8 SPI" below the display.
