ESP32-S3 Parallel 4.3 TFT with Touch

Introduction

This ESP32 4.3 inch IPS display could be an ideal displayer& controller for IoT applications. Its high lightness IPS display with a resolution of 800*480 makes the display effect beautiful, together with 5 points capacitive touch, great for applications such as home automation; There onboard SD card and RTC, to make it possible to record/play filed data. Also, there 2 Mabee/ Grove connectors, so the users can connect kinds of sensors to this board, to create personal prototype projects instantly.

The ESP32-S3 has WiFi& Bluetooth 5.0, and 8M PSRAM ESP32-S3 is used in this product, with 16M FLASH, to make it competent for more advanced applications.
