1.8" TFT and Proto Pi Plate with RPi

by ngreatorex on Sun Jul 29, 2012 8:23 pm

Hi,

Just wanted to share that I've soldered one of your 1.8" TFTs onto a Proto Pi Plate and written code to display some info on it from the Pi. I've uploaded a video of it in action to http://www.flickr.com/photos/ngreatorex/7672743302/

The kernel module source is at https://github.com/ngreatorex/st7735fb if anyone is interested in doing the same. The module is based on the excellent work of Matt Porter at TI (see http://elinux.org/images/1/19/Passing_Time_With_SPI_Framebuffer_Driver.pdf).

Cheers,
Neil
