2.8" TFT Shield / FONA Shield / Mega Pin Callout

by CPPCowboy on Thu Apr 12, 2018 7:54 am

My setup and #defines are,
Arduino Mega 2560
Adafruit_FONA shield - FONA_RX 51, FONA_TX 50, FONA_RST 11
Adafruit 2.8" TFT shield - TFT_DC 9, TFT_CS 10, STMPE_CS 8, SD_CS 4

The 2.8" TFT shield works great alone with the Mega.
The FONA shield works great alone with the Mega.

My issue is when I stack the TFT shield on top of the FONA shield, on top of the Mega. I can't read the SD card on the 2.8" TFT any more.

I would post some code, but it's rather large (over 1,000 lines).

I did solder close the ICSP jumpers on the back of the TFT.

Does anyone know why I cannot read the SD on the TFT?

While waiting on some input, I will code a bare bones sketch for the Mega/TFT/FONA.

Re: 2.8" TFT Shield / FONA Shield / Mega Pin Callout

Here is a simple sketch that has communication between the Mega and FONA working. When I uncomment the tft.begin(); and 6 lines below, the FONA stops communicating with the Mega.

Can anyone explain why this isn't working properly?

I changed the SD_CS to 53 (Mega 5260) and add the following lines,
pinMode(53, OUTPUT);
digitalWrite(53, HIGH);

Still get SD initialization failed!

My test code is the Adafruit FONAtest.ion shown below,

Re: 2.8" TFT Shield / FONA Shield / Mega Pin Callout

I am one slow learner : )

SPI.begin(); is a beautiful line

I am in no way associated with Simon Monk, but his two books on Programming Arduino are the best ! !
