2.8″ TFT on XMOS

2.8Touch Shield

Ok ive had this TFT from RadioShack for a while now and never really use it but i think this is a good time to test it out. Im using the startKIT from XMOS as the controller.

This LCD is originally a 5v product. To make it a 3.3v item simply remove the 3.3v regulator and jump the input and output pins like I have done here. Notice that in case i want to use it on 5v again i left the IC (vreg) taped to a area on the pcb as to reuse it 🙂


Using the code attached/linked below you can control your LCD as well. This code was converted from the original code from the LCD Info link below. There is no TOUCH portion as of yet. I got tired and decided to leave it for another day. I will be using an IC to convert touches. The IC i will be using is the ADS7843. So expect code for that one of these days.

Here are some images as proof of code working.
