CleO35 – The 3.5″ Smart TFT Display

CleO brings to market a family of intelligent, simple to program TFT display boards through which engineers can develop imaginative, compelling human machine interfaces, regardless of their experience level. Using Arduino as a foundation, CleO is able to leverage Bridgetek’s high speed bridging and display technology so that improved performance and greater functionality can be benefitted from.

CleO35 is a 3.5″ smart TFT display shield for Arduino. It includes a 3.5 inch 320×480 pixel TFT LCD panel with resistive touch, and PWM audio output with in-built speaker amplifier for advanced audio quality.
These smart TFT display shields can be easily programmed by almost anyone to give professional looking HMI / GUI’s with no prior knowledge of complex graphics programming or mathematics.
