The Oak TFT Shield Kit allows you to build a Digispark shield that adds a 2.2“ color TFT LCD to the Oak. The shield works with the easy to use Adafruit GFX library. Use it to show project status, your favorite Twitter feed, or even turn it into an alarm clock!
This is an unassembled kit and requires basic soldering. This is designed for use with the Digispark development board, which is not included.

Resistor Values: For more information on how to identify the value of the resistors, we recommend these sites: A nice simple resistor calculator: http://www.ealnet.com/m-eal/resistor/resistor.htm A comprehensive article on identification: http://www.diyaudioandvideo.com/Electronics/Color/
Soldering: If you are new to soldering we recommend the following tutorials: Soldering Basics (http://www.sparkfun.com/tutorials/106) and Soldering Crash Course from the folks at Sparkfun (http://www.sparkfun.com/tutorials/354). How to solder from the Curious Inventor: http://store.curiousinventor.com/guides/How_to_Solder
Adafruit has this excellent guide that starts with the tools needed and then shows detailed pictures, including some of the common problems that beginners experience (http://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-guide-excellent-soldering)
We assume for these assembly instructions that you know the basics of thru-hole soldering. If you don't check out the links above, these boards are very easy to solder - we promise!
Empty kit bag (or if using a raw PCB, acquire parts) and verify contents. Note for Kickstarter Backers and Pre-orders: Headers are not included in each kit bag, but the entire order came with more than enough headers for all kits.
IMAGES AND NOTES GO HERE. WILL BE COMPLETED TONIGHT.
Your Oak TFT shield is complete!
