MP on Discovery F469NI (display / touchscreen) ?

Post by ubiq_01 » Tue Mar 22, 2016 7:47 am

Did somebody consider using MicroPython on one of the Discovery boards with touchscreen - preferably the new
DISCO-F469NI with large display and capacitive touchscreen - https://developer.mbed.org/platforms/ST ... ry-F469NI/ ?

Would there be a strategy to start with a "basic port" and only then add the display / touchscreen specific libs (with e.g. the
mbed example code or cubeF4 code as a basis)?

I "paired" such a board with an ESP8266 for connectivity ( https://twitter.com/_rac01/status/712002801572810753 ) -
and it would be just great to have a chance to program it with MicroPython.

best regards
Ralf

The most complete solution I've seen to pairing MicroPython with a decent size LCD touch screen is this: http://forum.micropython.org/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=1396. He's written and tested the driver and designed a PCB to connect a Pyboard to the display http://tinyurl.com/gpza7v2.

I just learned that even Linux can run on this board. See http://elinux.org/STM32#STM32F429i-Discovery

Will follow up on this.
