5.0" TFT DISPLAY+RA8875 Driver Board for TFT Adafruit

Hello all,

I have a problem with the driver RA8875 that controls the TFT.

I uploaded the sketch of test (buildtest) on Galileo gen 2 and does not work.

I know that something needs to be changed in the libraries but I do not know what, I've never created a library.

Once I uploaded the sketch, Galileo detect the driver (not immediately, but at the second attempt) but the TFT screen does not respond, it remains off.

What should I change to make it work ...?

The links of libraries and drivers are:

driver: https://www.adafruit.com/products/1590 https://www.adafruit.com/products/1590

tft: https://www.adafruit.com/products/1596 https://www.adafruit.com/products/1596

libraries : https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_RA8875 adafruit/Adafruit_RA8875 · GitHub

thanks

Hi vinciolo,

I'm afraid that TFT display and RA8875 driver are not currently supported by the Galileo Board since the libraries are not written to support the Galileo architecture.

I know there is another TFT screen from Adafruit that needs some modifications in its libraries to be supported with the Galileo Board. I'll recommend you to check this thread, it could be interest for you:

Regards,

Diego.

The RA8875 (4.3" TFT LCD + capacitive touch feature) from East Rising works fine with the Intel Edison. You will however need to modify the existing library to get it to work.

I am pretty sure the one from Adafruit will also work.
