3D Model: 1.8” TFT Backpack

Posted on Monday, September 3rd, 2012 in 3D Model by Filip

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 the Dangerous Prototypes 3D warehouse collection.

    Looking slick!

    Nice, which PIC?. I can’t wait to see the real PCB.

      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 :)).

    imma want to program this one of these! i dont have PICs but i do have AVRs!!!

    can we have a BP library for this one too? it works with SPI right>??

    • Sjaak says:

      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 ;))
