Introduction: Displaying Time on a LCD TFT Screen With Arduino UNO

About: Arduino Projects :)

In this article, I will show you how to get the time on a LCD TFT screen with Arduino!

Read this tutorial or watch the youtube video :)

Some wires

Step 2: Wiring Diagram

5V (LCD) - 5V Arduino
MISO (LCD) - Pin 12 Arduino
SCK (LCD) - Pin 13 Arduino
MOSI (LCD) - Pin 11 Arduino
LCD CS (LCD) - Pin 10 Arduino
SD CS (LCD) - Pin 4 Arduino
D/C (LCD) - Pin 9 Arduino
RESET (LCD) - Pin 8 Arduino
BL (LCD) - 5V Arduino
GND (LCD) - GND Arduino

Step 3: Arduino Code

Download the sketch & upload it to your Arduino.

You can adjust the start time by change the parameters as shown below.

int hh = 00; //Set start time for hours
int H = 00; //Set start time for minutes
int N = 00; //Set start time for seconds

Step 4: Endresult

The time is now displayed on the LCD screen. (Picture)

Or watch the video for the endresult :)
