2.Connect the board to PC using USB cable.

3.Download the library TFT_ILI9163C library;Unzip it into the libraries file of Arduino IDE by the path: ..\arduino-1.0.1\libraries.

4.Open the code directly by the path:File -> Example ->TFT_ILI9163C->test.

#include <SPI.h>
#include <Adafruit_GFX.h>
#include <TFT_ILI9163C.h>

// All wiring required, only 3 defines for hardware SPI on 328P
#define __DC 9
#define __CS 10
// MOSI --> (SDA) --> D11
#define __RST 12
// SCLK --> (SCK) --> D13

// Color definitions
#define	BLACK   0x0000

TFT_ILI9163C tft = TFT_ILI9163C(__CS, __DC, __RST);

void setup() {
  tft.begin();
}

void loop(){
  testLines(random(0x00ff,0xffff));
  delay(100);
  testText();
  delay(500);
}


unsigned long testText() {
  tft.fillScreen();
  unsigned long start = micros();
  tft.setCursor(0, 0);
  tft.setTextColor(WHITE);  
  tft.setTextSize(1);
  tft.println("Hello World!");
  tft.setTextColor(YELLOW); 
  tft.setTextSize(2);
  tft.println(1234.56);
  tft.setTextColor(RED);    
  tft.setTextSize(3);
  tft.println(0xDEAD, HEX);
  tft.println();

  tft.println("Hello");
  return micros() - start;
}

unsigned long testLines(uint16_t color) {
  tft.fillScreen();
  unsigned long start, t;
  int           x1, y1, x2, y2,
  w = tft.width(),
  h = tft.height();
  tft.fillScreen();
  x1 = y1 = 0;
  y2    = h - 1;
  start = micros();
  for(x2=0; x2<w; x2+=6) tft.drawLine(x1, y1, x2, y2, color);
  x2    = w - 1;
  for(y2=0; y2<h; y2+=6) tft.drawLine(x1, y1, x2, y2, color);
  t     = micros() - start; // fillScreen doesn't count against timing
  tft.fillScreen();
  x1    = w - 1;
  y1    = 0;
  y2    = h - 1;
  start = micros();
  for(x2=0; x2<w; x2+=6) tft.drawLine(x1, y1, x2, y2, color);
  x2    = 0;
  for(y2=0; y2<h; y2+=6) tft.drawLine(x1, y1, x2, y2, color);
  t    += micros() - start;
  tft.fillScreen();
  x1    = 0;
  y1    = h - 1;
  y2    = 0;
  start = micros();
  for(x2=0; x2<w; x2+=6) tft.drawLine(x1, y1, x2, y2, color);
  x2    = w - 1;
  for(y2=0; y2<h; y2+=6) tft.drawLine(x1, y1, x2, y2, color);
  t    += micros() - start;
  tft.fillScreen();
  x1    = w - 1;
  y1    = h - 1;
  y2    = 0;
  start = micros();
  for(x2=0; x2<w; x2+=6) tft.drawLine(x1, y1, x2, y2, color);
  x2    = 0;
  for(y2=0; y2<h; y2+=6) tft.drawLine(x1, y1, x2, y2, color);
  return micros() - start;
}

5.Upload the Code,you shoule see the display of LCD.
