Sunlight readable TFT HMI

Postby strud » Mon Oct 28, 2019 12:39 pm

Hi All

Just ordered one of these to upgrade my hand held rocketry 'pendant' for GSE and rocket monitoring/tele-command system.

Data sheet here

Advantage over what I'm currently using is the significant improvement in graphics programming and indeed the types of widgets, scales, gauges etc available and supported within the display engine.

I had been trying to find something like this with a transflective display but alas these seem to be very hard to come by and indeed look to be disappearing. So instead this one has a super bright backlight to make it sunlight readable.

Connection to the pendant uC etc is via SPI bus.

Will post more once I have it up and running with something useful to show.

That looks like a nice display!
