SPI GPIO LCD

1.8 SPI LCD

Alternative Method GPIO LCD

  • Use latest system
  • sudo nano /boot/config.txt -> add ->
dtparam=i2c_arm=on,spi=on
dtoverlay=pitft28-resistive, rotate=270 speed=48000000 fps=30


  • Make debug monitor on screen -> sudo nano /boot/cmdline.txt before“rootwait” -> add -> fbcon=map:10 fbcon=font:VGA8x8

Enter into graphic system

  • sudo nano ~/.profile -> add -> export FRAMEBUFFER=/dev/fb1
  • raspi-config -> Enable Boot to Desktop/Scratch” -> ”Desktop log in as user ‘pi’ at the graphical desktop

HDMI

Vendor GoodDisplay

for 5 -> sudo ./LCD5-show
  • important, if display blink, make sure USB power is enough, otherwise attach usb power to display too
  • make sure no other pins used touch screen GPIOs

Note

  • change back to traditional LCD -> sudo ./LCD-hdmi

DPI - LCD

VGA

enable_dpi_lcd=1 
display_default_lcd=1
dpi_group=2 
dpi_mode=82
  • or 1366×768@60
dpi_group=2 
dpi_mode=86
  • If use 3B, please use latest raspbian system, and add following two times to turn off uart and bluetooth.
#disable the bluetooth only for pi3
dtparam=uart1=off
dtoverlay=pi3-disable-bt-overlay

Debug

  • Also turn off SPI, IIC, Serial, 1-wire, remote IO in raspi-config in case
  • Plug VGA before power up.

Obsolete

5 inch HDMI + Touch LCD

Setup for HDMI standard

make sure you use the latest (or recent version in 2015) version of raspbian, When the first time you use it, the dipslay may not displaying properly, please reset the resolution

  • Run commands Or edit file in sd card on PC (not RPI)
sudo nano  /boot/config.txt
  • uncomment the following line
hdmi_force_hotplug=1
  • uncomment and add the following line too, resolution is set to 800x640
hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=1
hdmi_mode=87
hdmi_cvt  800  480  60  6  0  0  0

Setup for Touch Screen (Optional)

  • Touch screen control ads7846 and XPT2046
  • Find the following driver here. copy it to anywhere in RPI
  • run the following command to install drive
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ tar xvf 5inch_HDMI_LCD.tar.gz
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ cd 5inch_HDMI_LCD/
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo ./5inch_HDMI_LCD
  • in the command the /boot/config.txt will be automatically setup
  • Reboot and now the touch control should work. check the kernel log again
cat /var/log/kern.log

The bash of 5inch_hdmi_LCD including
sudo cp ./etc/modules /etc/modules
sudo rm /boot/kernel.img
sudo rm /boot/config.txt
sudo cp ./kernel.img /boot/kernel.img
sudo cp ./kernel7.img /boot/
sudo cp ./config.txt /boot/config.txt
sudo rm -rf /lib/modules
sudo cp -rf ./modules /lib/
sudo reboot
Calibration
  • evtest
apt-get install evtest
  • install xinput_calibrator and run
DISPLAY=:0.0 xinput_calibrator

Once the xinput_calibrator is installed, go the graphic control screen, in the menu ""preference"" => choose "calibrate touchscreen"

  • Manually calibration:
nano /etc/modules

and edit x y cords:

ads7846_device model=7846 speed=100000 cs=1 gpio_pendown=25  keep_vref_on=0 swap_xy=0 pressure_max=255 x_plate_ohms=150 x_min=176 x_max=3913 y_min=561 y_max=3947

in our case, mouse pointer is little bit up, so we set y_min=561 to 300, works better

7 inch HDMI + Touch LCD

Important Note

  • Follow the attached image of instruction to build it.
  • Only tested on raspbian, ubuntu, other systems can not bu sure. Please try it by yourself.
  • Original HDMI has a hard stiffness, you can replace it with this one.
  • Original usb cable is a little too long.
  • After driver is installed, you will only need to power RPI, the LCD can touch panel can draw power from RP
  • Fragile stand kit, do no apply too large force on it, otherwise will breakdown!
  • No need calibrate for touch screen

Specification

  • LCD type: AT070TN90

Installation

  • please use the latest raspbian image 20150605.
  • please find the download link in your order note to download the driver.
  • copy RPI2B_B_B+_USB_TOUCH_CAP_7.0_RASPBIAN.tar.gz to RPI
  • unzip it
sudo tar  zxvf  RPI2B_B_B+_USB_TOUCH_CAP_7.0_RASPBIAN.tar.gz
  • cd into the folder
  • and run to install
sudo  ./USB_TOUCH_CAP_7.0_RASPBIAN
  • enter into graphic deskttop to use
