User-space SPI ILI9341 TFT Python Library Guide

raspberry_pi_DSC00512_copy

User-space SPI TFT Python Library – ILI9341 is a new guide on the learning system:

Does your Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black project need a display that’s a little more capable than a small graphic LCDor OLED? Perhaps you want to display full color images and text, but don’t need a full blown ‘shield’ like the PiTFT. With the ILI9341 Python library and a 2.8″ TFT display breakout you can add a large, colorful graphic display to your Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black project!

This guide will show you how to wire up, install, and use a Python library to control ILI9341-based displays like the 2.8″ breakout in userspace SPI – that means you don’t need a kernel! This library uses an SPI connection and a couple GPIO pins to control the display, leaving many other pins free for your project’s needs.
