Since you are utilizing the Arduino Due you can safety interface directly to the EVE2 TFT Modules without a logic level converter.

Please note that the NHD-FT81x-SHIELD features a logic level converter for the classic Arduinos (UNO/MEGA/Diecimila). If you utilize the shield this will be redundant since the Due's logic is already 3.3V.

The EVE2 example code on our Github page was originally written for the classic Arduinos (UNO/MEGA/Diecimila... etc). I believe the example Sketches use direct pin manipulation to make things faster. However the Due is a completely different architecture to the Uno, so direct pin manipulation is done differently. Modification to the example code maybe required in order for it to compile.

Kevin,

The email address which you used to register on this forum has rejected my message.

If you are interested in receiving the code please contact me at pbartek@newhavendisplay.com

Thanks!

Hey Kevin,

Sorry to hear about the trouble you are having with the NHD-FT81X-SHIELD.  All parts are tested before they leave our facility, chances that it is DOA is fairly low.

I'm happy to provide some example Arduino code which utilizes the SD card. I've sent the example code to your email (forum email address) due to the file size restrictions on the forum  ::)

I verified correct operation this morning using an Arduino Uno, NHD-FT81X-SHIELD, and the NHD-7.0-800480FT-CTXL-T (Arduino V. 1.8.5).

Please upload it to your Arduino and let me know what happens.

Thank you for the information, can you please let me know which NHD-7.0CTP-CAPE you purchased i.e. L, N, or V?

Are you using the Images available for download in the User Guide or spinning your own overlay?

The NHD-7.0CTP-CAPE was originally designed for the BeagleBone Black (non wireless) back in 2016. I'll try to get my hands on the BBB (wireless) early next week and see if I can replicate the issue you are experiencing.

Can you please check which Arduino IDE version you have installed?

Second, it might be worth trying a fresh install of the latest Arduino IDE:

Arduino files are found in 3 locations: The installation folder, the sketchbook folder, and the Arduino15 folder. The installation folder should be removed when you uninstall but the other two folders remain so you will need to remove those also to get a completely clean install. The Arduino15 folder is located at:

On Mac OS X:
/Users/(username)/Library/Arduino15

On Windows:
Arduino IDE 1.6.5r5 and previous:
C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Arduino15
Arduino IDE 1.6.6 and later:
C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Local\Arduino15

On Linux:
/home/(username)/.arduino15    (a.k.a. ~/.arduino15)

If you delete this folder then you will need to reinstall any Boards you have installed using Boards Manager after you reinstall the Arduino IDE.

The sketchbook folder location is set in File > Preferences if you have any sketches or libraries that you want to save in there then back them up before removing it.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Morning Peter,

Iím sorry to hear about the trouble you are having with the NHD-4.3CTP-SHIELD.

As stated previously the FT80x library was originally written with the old IDE, and since then the avr-gcc compiler has changed and certain keywords/datatypes give errors in the new Arduino IDEís.

Please note that the FTDI_FT800 & FTDI_FT801 Libraries were updated back in February (of 2017) on our GitHub page:

https://github.com/NewhavenDisplay/FTDI_FT800
https://github.com/NewhavenDisplay/FTDI_FT801

The code successfully complies on version 1.8.1 - 1.8.5 (latest release)

I verified correct operation this morning using an Arduino Uno and the NHD-4.3CTP-SHIELD-V (Arduino V. 1.8.5).

I know this might sound odd but can you please tell me what brand microSD card you are utilizing?

It sounds like an obvious thing to avoid, but sadly, is there any chance you purchased a fake/bad microSD card?

Morning,

Iím sorry to hear about the trouble you are having with the NHD-7.0CTP-CAPE.

It would be helpful to see your boot process. To see the actual boot process a RS232 cable like the TTL-232R-3V3 from FTDI is needed. Just plug it into the J1 connector (located on the BBB) and open a serial terminal of your choice.

Lastly, can you confirm that everything is operational with your beagleboneblack wireless? You wouldn't happen to have a second one available for testing?

Regards,

Please note that we sell a Arduino Shield for the EVE2 TFT Modules.

http://www.newhavendisplay.com/nhdft81xshield-p-9581.html

IMPORTANT: If you are trying to connect the bare EVE2 TFT Module to a 5V system (i.e. Arduino Uno) without a logic level converter this could damage the device.

Morning Marc,

Good news, sounds like we are making some progress  ;)

On the Arduino Uno and compatible boards the following pins used are:

Code: [Select]

// MOSI (11)
// MISO (12)
// SCK  (13)

#define FT800_CS                 (10)
#define FT800_INT                (9)
#define FT800_PD_N               (8)
#define FT_SDCARD_CS             (5)

The pin assignments are located in FT_Platform.h

Lastly, would it be possible for you to try a fresh install of the latest Arduino IDE?

Arduino files are found in 3 locations: The installation folder, the sketchbook folder, and the Arduino15 folder. The installation folder should be removed when you uninstall but the other two folders remain so you will need to remove those also to get a completely clean install. The Arduino15 folder is located at:

On Mac OS X:
/Users/(username)/Library/Arduino15

On Windows:
Arduino IDE 1.6.5r5 and previous:
C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Arduino15
Arduino IDE 1.6.6 and later:
C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Local\Arduino15

On Linux:
/home/(username)/.arduino15    (a.k.a. ~/.arduino15)

If you delete this folder then you will need to reinstall any Boards you have installed using Boards Manager after you reinstall the Arduino IDE.

The sketchbook folder location is set in File > Preferences if you have any sketches or libraries that you want to save in there then back them up before removing it.

Morning Marc,

Thanks for reaching out, I believe FTDI recently released a Library for the PIC MCUs (see link below).

Morning Carl,

I've only utilized the EVE Screen Editor V2.3.4 when designing with the 4.3" Arduino Shields which utilize the FT800 & FT801 ICs.

Unfortunately, FTDI has not added Arduino support to the EVE2 ICs (FT812, FT813) at this time. The only option I see in the drop down menu is for Bridgetekís Development Modules.

As a workaround you can mock up your GUI and port the Coprocessor commands to your Arduino project.

Hey Jesse,

Thanks for sharing your demo code, it will definitely help others  8)
