      For those that are interested just ordered a new set of adapters for the ILI9488 parallel display by Buydisplay:

      Testing with Flexio 16 bit... Ran the 8 wires between the two adapters... Most looks good, but the getRect or more likely writeRect ... looks like the colors are off Look where the color bar between sort of the filled triangle and circle... top...

      I now have my one Parallel RA8876 moved back to the T4.1 I am using Mikes Adapter, with then my Adpater for ILI94xxx plugged into it, with a long RPI stacking header. With this added adapter I can now patch in signals to D8-D15 of the display to...

      KurtE replied to the thread Framebuffers and PSRAM.
      A couple of different ways: Somewhere global something like: EXTMEM uint16_t buf[MYPSRAM * 1024 * 1024] __attribute__((aligned(32))); and in your code before you use frame buffer to a call like: tft.setFrameBuffer(buf); Makes sense that 3...

      I think there may be something else maybe going wrong... That is the ILI9341_t3 library does still define those colors. From the latest Teensyduino, I see the header file still has: // Color definitions #define ILI9341_BLACK 0x0000...

      Yes, bridge the center to the pad near the other USB to power it from the 5V supply, or to the other pad to power it from the PD chip (which requires external power).

      I was wondering the same thing. The only other issue would be 8/16bit bus usage. I think DMA is only setup for 8bit and I am not sure about async...

      Quick note, I did another update of the branch mentioned above. I think I integrated the IRQ code and it might be working. However there appears like there might not be any current test sketches that calls the functions like...

      Making progress: Have not done changes yet to do the async stuff using interrupts Edit: Not done yet but pushed up the current changes up to new fork/branch: https://github.com/KurtE/TeensyRA8876Combined/tree/T40_WIP

      Probably not this case: that is if you look at the constructor for RA8876_GFX void RA8876_common::RA8876_GFX(uint16_t buswidth) { _width = SCREEN_WIDTH; _height = SCREEN_HEIGHT; _bus_width = buswidth; } I sets _bus_width to what is...

      I am currently working off of your new library ... cherry pick.

      Quick update: I now have it working I think reasonably well on T4... Created PR back to main... @mjs513 - you want to take a look, before I or you merge? https://github.com/mjs513/ILI948x_t4x_p/pull/3 Note: I did rerun the kurts... test on it...

      One adapter that we have that we have been testing with makes use of @Paul 3 t4.1 board. This is an image of @KurtE's setup with the adapter this is of just the adapter on the board: Probably will make one for the RA886 to a T4 and another...

      Thanks Mike, I new there was another thread. Just could not find it. I also need to find the latest Dev5.0 schematics.Would that be in @defragster's EVKB_1060 repo?

    • KurtE
      Take a look at post # of the variant thread. 1. Replace @KurtE's core files with those installed by the IDE installer as you said and 2. As @defragster mentioned download @KurtE's FLEXIO_t4 lib and replace it in the libraries folder.
    • KurtE
      Think that was on the SDRAM thread. The yellow tint was attaching a ILI9488 to the DB5 board using either a flexio or csi camera. Had to change from 206 mhz to 221 mhz (that was with the new voltage curve as part of the @KurtE's variant). Was...

      I pushed up the the changes for DMA. I added a simple test case for DMA in the testcases folder. Feel free to test if interested. I am wondering what is the best way to implement it other than using "pushPixels16bitDMA(...);"?

      Quick update on my DB5 that stopped working - with double blink..... Not sure if the RA8876 had anything to do with it. Yes problem with my connector, where the two columns are reversed, so makes sense the display did not work... Maybe fixed...

      @KurtE @mjs513 - I have added DMA to the library and it is working on the MIcroMod. I changed some of the conflicting names that were used for both async and DMA by just adding DMA to the function or variable name like: FASTRUN void...

      As I posted in other area, I screwed up the connector to the RA8876 on the shield. The two columns of pins are swapped. Also while trying this out, my DB5, decide to head south... Note: I did a quick and dirty pin column swap adapter board...

      Note: I would guess that this won't work with a simple 9v battery like that. Let alone usually the wires that connect them probably don't carry very much current. But I could be proven wrong...

      Pretty much can use any pin that does not conflict. I usually just have BL connected to 3.3v or 5v so I dont have to bother with it. Sounds like you are recovering nicely.

      Just a quick note, I noticed that pin #7 is also being used for the backlite pin. That conflicts with the WR pin on the MMod and Dev board. Is there a standard pin number defined for Backlite control? Or should I just select a pin that does not...
    • KurtE
      Quick update - Looks like the CSI pins on the adapter/DB5 are working: Here again shows the strange tint using the SDRAM... Was able to choose the CSI by the method: #if defined(DB5_USE_CSI) // try using the CSI pins on devboard 5...

      The new versions 4.5 and 5.0 of the DevBoards just arriving to larger test group. Some Crashes appeared not seen the same on the V4.0, except perhaps rarely. It seems to be related to the use of the Industrial 528 MHz MCU. Also used at 600 MHz...
