Re: Kite Circuit Sword 640x480 LCD?

The 320x240 is fine but the 640x480 lcd is much better in terms of clarity and sharpness. Obviously is a much more high res lcd than the former. I think it’s going to be the standard when the price gets low and I’m sure it will eventually get low.

Re: Kite Circuit Sword 640x480 LCD?

Yes it's totally worth it. Especially the newer 640x480 lcd that is similar with dimensions with the usual 320x240 lcd.

Re: First Time Help

Here's the Battery Monitoring for tinkerBOY Controller V3.

If you haven't bought any powerboost, i have one remaining stock for my tinkerBOY PowerSwitch with Safe Shutdown. Stocks will be replenished for about 1-2 weeks.

So Tinkerboy, does the V3 with the 6 button layout make the rear buttons obsolete?
No, you can add 4 rear buttons if you want along with a 6-button layout.

Re: Where the F#*k do i start?

You might be interested with my newly released tinkerBOY PowerSwitch with Safe Shutdown. It’s like a powerboost but with higher power capacity.

And yes my v3 uses a usb audio chip with builtin amp. It’s got battery monitoring feature too. 😊👍

Re: Testing a new 3.5” 640x480 IPS DPI LCD

The initialization data is usually not stored in the LCD controller. You have to initialize it on every power up. The parameters are not trivial, especially if you have to write a gamma table. You will need to ask the manufacturer for the correct initialization data or sniff it [;)] You’re right I ...

Re: Testing a new 3.5” 640x480 IPS DPI LCD

I'm not really sure as I'm just learning about this initialization thing on this lcd but looking at the Hyperpixel, it looks like there's a program that runs once and writes codes to it via spi on the Raspberry Pi to initialize it. So if its just a one time write to initialize the lcd then it would ...
