A Microcontroller is a self-contained system, containing a processor, memory and peripherals and is designed to provide real-time responses to the embedded system that they are controlling.
8-bit. 16-bit, 32-bit, flash memory, Ram size, input and output lines, supply voltage and speed, microcontrollers come in many shapes and sizes and with differing abilities, what one will you use in your latest design project?

It is a little bit complex, what do you need exactly? A program code? Or just instructions?
Here you can see, how to implement the keypad to your project:did you ever come across any more issues of spi protocol?Hi,
I would suggest you to work on Arduino boards. I have once worked on 7 inch TFT LCD and I have used Arduino Mega 2560 ( https://www.theengineeringprojects.com/2018/06/introduction-to-arduino-mega-2560.html...Hi,
You need to interface both of these modules separately with Arduino UNO.
First, try Arduino Keypad interfacing by following this tutorial: https://www.theengineeringprojects.com/2017/08/arduino-keypad-interfacing.htmlI just did a quick search and it stated a switch for this purpose is included in the kit.
I suggest searching for spares, it seems to be described as common across their range as "1500601921 Alarm...article
