RA8875 TFT driver displays

Post by vitormhenrique » Tue Jan 22, 2019 4:12 pm

Hello Everyone,

I started porting to micropython and adding some functionality to a library that melissa just started for circuitpython.

Unfortunately I justtttt got started with micropython, I wish I could get the library as a subclass of framebuf (would the performance of the driver improve?), but tat is not the case so far. If someone could point me on the direction I would appreciate.

My final goal is to build a small handheld interpreter with a large screen custom keyboard input and maybe get some games running on the screen as well. A big learning exercise.

Best regards,

Vitor Henrique

Have you though about the FTDI EVE sceens like GameDunio uses.

see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SfL8NtfFfio

Here's a very cheap 8=5" 800x480 screen with the FTDI chip on it https://www.hotmcu.com/5-graphical-lcd- ... p-286.html

That does sound interesting... I might get one to play with it!
