Arduino Uno with Sainsmart 32 (TFT_QVT)

Basic Hello World with 320x240 TFT on Arduino Uno - used as basis to test for my BBB.  Full credit to http://www.craigandheather.net/docs/ContemplatorArticle.pdf
Pin Mapping

Note it is required to load the UTFT library beforehand.

Stripped down program (just the basics to test the screen)

// This program is a demo of how to use most of the functions
// of the library with a supported display modules.
// This demo was made for modules with a screen resolution
// of 320x240 pixels.
// This program requires the UTFT library.

void loop()

// Clear the screen and draw the frame
