3D Model: 1.8” TFT Backpack

Today’s 3D model is a 1.8” TFT Backpack board we’ve been playing with lately in the workshop. It’s a cheap 1.8” serial TFT we got of of eBay. The picture was rendered using Kerkythea, sorry about the light-umbrella reflection on the screen.

The board features a PIC microcontroller that controls the TFT, handles USB communication, reads button presses, and has access to a micro SD card.

The models will be published in theĀ Dangerous Prototypes 3D warehouse collection.

    1. Keep an eye on the blog this week. There will be a video on thursday (I guess) and the wiki will be updated the same time.

      The prototype uses a 18f26j50, which might be overkill for driving an tft (or not :)).

      1. None yet ;) AFAIK the bootloader on svn for the 24j50 can be used 1:1 (i hope!)

        Also the source needs a bit of a clean up and some TLC :)

    1. This one has a pic included :D

      The TFT uses a kind of SPI with some nasty bugs :) If you look for an arduino (AVR?) library please check adafruits github. The code wil be in our svn (after some cleanup ;))
