FEZ Touch Display vs ITEAD ITDB02-2.4D module

Other than the connector pinout and SD card support what is the difference between the 2.4" FEZ Touch display and the ITead ITDB02-2.4D module?

The display appears to be the same and the display controllers are then same.

The ITDB02-2.4D module only costs $20.50?

The 40 pins connector on the ITDB02-2.4D module is NOT compatable with the 40 pins connectors on Panda II, but the 2.4" FEZ Touch Display is.

In order to use the ITDB02-2.4D module with Panda II, you have to do the wiring yourself!

There is also an Arduino pin-out adapter for that module. I have it and will be creating a driver for it when I have time.

Skewworks,

There is a a library for it, here
[url]http://code.tinyclr.com/project/60/24-tft-lcd-screen-module/[/url]
which has not been updated to use Parellel IO.

And there is also a driver here,

Thanks for the replies :slight_smile:

I plan on building an adapter PCB so I can connect the display to my Cobra. I already designed such a board for the FEZ Touch when I ran across the ITDB02-2.4D. Since the ITDB02-2.4D is half the price I think I’ll use it instead unless someone can point out a reason not to :-[

I have already coded up an RLP driver for the display to run on my Cobra and was just waiting for the FEZ Touch to begin shipping…

ParallelPort is in the attachment:

I left original code since that driver can be used with netduino as well.

Thanks Architect!
I did not notice that! :-[

No problem, man! :smiley:

Please share on “fezzer”.

In my opinion, the screen of 2.4" is kind of too small for me.
May be I’m already familiar with 3.5" Cobra Screen already! ???

Actually I agree but $20 versus $100 makes me think twice :smiley:

As soon as I can test it I will…

In the process of writing the RLP driver I also wrote a small C# app to simplify the build process for the ELF image file. You just specify the source code and header files to be built and the platform the ELF file is targeted for (EMX, ChipworkX etc) and the app builds the makefile, edit’s the link file and spawns the make utility to create the ELF file. If there is any interest I’ll post that on Fezzer as well.

@ Sam I was talking about a driver for the ITead ITDB02-2.4D module. :wink:

That exactly what it is:

I have used the arduino connector you have mentioned. ;D

Facepalm Don’t mind me Architect I’ll just be sitting over here oblivious to the interwebs around me. :-[

LOL! Sounds like my mondays!

I know, it’s foggy day in Chicago right now! :smiley: :smiley:

Is there 16bit Parallelport support on the Panda II to support the following:

It’s the 3.2" LCD version of the 2.4 mentioned already. I believe the 3.2 display is hardwired for 16bits only.

Architect - could I use your drivers for this display?

Use these documents to get you started (click on downloads) http://www.ghielectronics.com/catalog/product/262

As far as I know there is no 16 bit parallel port support. I am using two 74LCX374 chips to form the 16-bit bus required for this display.

BTW: For readers of my original post one of the main differences between the FEZ Touch and the ITD02-2.4D is the time to obtain one. It took nearly three weeks for my ITDB02 to arrive in the US from China via air mail :frowning:

But it still only costs $20…

It is not FEZ plug-and-play either :slight_smile:

Synapsys: Can you provide more details on what you’re doing to get the 3.2" screen to work? I have a Fez Touch screen on the way, but would like to see the 3.2" screen can be made to work with a Panda II.
