ILI9225 TFT display driver

Post by kwyman » Sat Dec 29, 2018 12:37 pm

Does anyone know of a driver compatible with the ILI9225 chip for driving a 2.2" 176x220 TFT colour display? I can only get my hands on arduino or Raspberry Pi drivers. Thanks!

If you are using Lobo firmware for ESP32 his display module has a custom screen option (this is what I use for some of my screens) where u just need to write the low level custom initiation then you can use the rest of methods in the modules to drive the screen

I'm using the "normal" firmware @ micropython.org. Maybe someone has looked at making a generic display driver?

Just take one of the existing drivers, take the datasheet, and make it. It's not rocket surgery. You will probably only need to make small modification to the initialization commands, everything else should be exactly the same.

Agree. Using internet search I found a suitable driver for RasPi, which seeded easy to adapt. (https://github.com/firnsy/BHack_Python_ILI9225).

b.t.w.:
"rocket surgery" = "rocket science"[0] + "brain surgery"[1]
dropping: "science brain"

I always visualized it as similar to laser surgery, only with rockets instead of lasers.
