I finally got around to making and building a Gadgeteer connected 5" LCD with capacitive touch. The LCD is a high brightness unit and looks great run from either the G120 (use the RAM overclocking to get a speed boost on the graphics - Thanks again Simon) or G400.
It has the standard Gadgeteer Sockets on it and like the CP7, uses I2C for the touch interface.
I’ve tested it with a G400 and in the picture below, the touch is connected to socket 7.
No drivers for it as yet as I still need to work out how to do this and support each platform that can use it. Thanks of course go to Simon from Vilnius for the touch driver. I had to use the software I2C driver for the G400 as there is a timing issue with the hardware driver. For the G120, hardware works fine. This will make drivers a bit of work. They have both been written to take a shared I2C device to allow multiple devices to share the same bus and driver)
I’ll document all of the setup and point to the code for the LCD on my website.
If you’re handy with coding and dealing with these issues and interested in the display, drop a note here as I want to get an idea of numbers before I commit this to Creations and my website.
