Linux Framebuffer drivers for small TFT LCD display modules @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

adafruit_pi

notro recently wrote in to share these drivers for small TFT LCD modules:

Hi, I want to let you know that I have added Linux framebuffer support for the following Adafruit displays:
* 2.2″ 18-bit color TFT LCD display (ILI9340, RGB565)
* Monochrome 1.3″ 128×64 OLED graphic display (SSD1306, RGB565->monochrome) – can be used as a tiny console or system info display.

These Adafruit displays are also supported:
* 1.8″ 18-bit color TFT LCD display
* The old 2.2″ display
* Nokia 5110/3310 monochrome LCD – can be used as a system info display

In addition to that, these Adafruit relevant LCD controllers are supported as well:
ILI9325
SSD1331
SSD1351

There is a prebuilt kernel available for the Raspberry Pi: https://github.com/notro/fbtft/wiki

Best regards,

2.2″ 18-bit color TFT LCD display with microSD card breakout – ILI9340 – This lovely little display breakout is the best way to add a small, colorful and bright display to any project. Since the display uses 4-wire SPI to communicate and has its own pixel-addressable frame buffer, it can be used with every kind of microcontroller. Even a very small one with low memory and few pins available! (read more)
