At Newhaven Display we offer various development tools to help any level of engineer get started with our products. From plug-and-play to more intense development capabilities, we are continuously working towards providing affordable tools for the display industry.



Our various custom shields are designed to work with a number of different products. Each shield is engineered in Elgin, IL to work seamlessly with Arduino's most popular development boards. By utilizing Arduino's vastly growing community, engineers can take advantage of shared code developed by other engineers as well as code created by our own engineers.

Arduino Shields

In order to help users get started with these shields, we share a repository of example code to get anyone up and running as soon as the product arrives. Additional resources can be found within Arduino's community; such as code assistance, code branches and sharing knowledge with other like-minded engineers.

The TFT Controller boards provide the user with the ability to use an 8-bit or 16-bit parallel processor input instead of the standard 24-bit RGB input. When the processor being used doesn't have a built-in controller to run the driver on the TFT, these boards offer a simple solution that is quick and easy to use. We offer various controller boards that can be used to connect to our 3.5", 4.3", 5.0", 5.7" and 7.0" TFT displays.

TFT Controller Boards


  • • Quick and easy solution to controller less TFT displays
  • • Supports 8-bit or 16-bit parallel processor
  • • Custom design to integrate with Newhaven's 3.5-7.0" TFTs
  • • RoHS compliant
