Guys chek this out, a fantastic shield with onboard RTC to stack other shields on top or connect the TFT and a lot of screw terminals around replicating all chipKIT ports of the MAX32, also Arduinio Mega R3 compatible.

That looks like a very useful shield! What TFT module(s) are compatible?

Hi guymc, it works with any TFT until 5" size that uses this pinout:

And ofcourse as long it has a chipKIT library, like the Henning Karlsen UTFT one that permits assigning witch chipKIT ports will be used for TFT, touch or SD card.

Sharp tools make good work.

I have been trying unsuccessfully to contact the company to place an order. Their messaging system seems to be broken. If you have a way to contact them or a method please let me know. I would be ordering the Arduino Mega R3 Screw Shield. That is the only way to hook up three (3) 8 channel relay boards to a quad stacked Arduino Mega 2560 that I am writing code for.

Again, Thank You for any help.
