Description: The Arduino Display Adapter is a simple Arduino Shield designed to provide a convenient interface to attach 4D Systems display modules to the Arduino platform, without having to use jumper wires on the Arduino headers.

Communication to the 4D Systems display modules is performed via the Arduino’s serial port (RX and TX), and is provided to the user in a simple 5-pin interface, where a 5 way cable can be attached between the Shield and the display module.

Power for the display is supplied from the Arduino’s 5V bus. No external power is required for the Display Module as all power is supplied from the Arduino, via the display adapter.


  • Direct Shield connection to the Arduino
  • Simple 5-pin serial interface for 4D System display modules
  • Arduino supplied 5V power for display module
  • 5 wire ribbon included
