Evaluation Tools / Re: NHD-7.0CTP-CAPE-N no picture
« on: July 31, 2017, 04:17:25 PM »

Thank you for the information, manual updates will be required to enable all aspects of the display when using the 4.x debian kernels (stock operating system).

The BB-BONE-NH7C-01-A0.dts overlay is available for download here:

Please note that it was recently added to the default BeagleBoard Debian Image by Robert Nelson and will not be installed on the beaglebone black directly out of the box.

You are not obliged to install Ubuntu, the software support is as follows:

  • Ubuntu with Kernel 3.15, 3.17, 3.18, 4.1 support (with SGX).
  • Ubuntu with Kernel 3.8 (device tree) support.
  • Rowboat android 4.2.2 with Kernel 3.2 support.
  • AOSP Android 4.4 with Google apps support
  • 4.x Debian

Best Regards,

Brilliant, thank you for sharing Dave! Did you spin your own PCB? I would be interested in seeing a picture of the back of the weather station  ;)

You can also wire them to the upper bits, in sequence  ;)

Hello carrasco,

One approach is to wire all the unused bits to a fixed value (typically zero - Ground). Please note that you do not need to utilize a pull-down resistor.

Not a problem, you should receive the patch files via eamil shortly  ;)

Thank you for contacting me with this inquiry, I am happy to help clarify how you can prototype with our 4.3" Arduino Shield with Capacitive Touch!

Since you'll probably be connecting other things to the Arduino (LEDs, sensors, servos) you can purchase a breakout shield and sandwich the two together. Another option to purchase an Arduino clone that has the I/O pins brought out on a second connection.

The NHD-4.3CTP-SHIELD-N is compatible with the Arduino MEGA straight out of the box, no solder jumpers need to be configured. By default it will utilize the ICSP/SPI header which is on most genuine Arduino’s.

Finally, our advice is to stick with a 7V - 8V DC adapter since most Arduino's utilize a cheap LDO and have trouble regulating at higher voltages.

Morning Rasmus,

Very strange, let me look into this bug which you are experiencing.

 In the mean time if you are interested in rolling your own overlay I am happy to send you the patch files.

Have you had a chance to review the NHD-7.0CTP-CAPE 7.0” BeagleBone Black Cape User Guide?

The NHD-7.0CTP-CAPE is designed to work with existing software and drivers already developed for the BeagleBone

The Requirements for use are:

  • NHD-7.0CTP-CAPE-x
  • BeagleBone Black with suitable distribution loaded - Images available for download in the User Guide
  • 8GB microSD card
  • 5V DC supply suitable for the BeagleBone Black

It would also 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.

I’m sorry to hear about the trouble you are having with the NHD-5.0-800480TF-ATXL#-T. Can you please provide a short video of the problem you are experiencing?

Morning Laxmikant,

The NHD-5.0-800480TF-ATXL# is not a sun-readable display. We will be introducing a sunlight-readable 5.0" TFT in the up coming year.  These new displays have brightness levels and features that allow for excellent viewing quality even in direct sunlight conditions.

In the mean time feel free to check out our new 4.3" Sunlight Readable TFT:

Please see the updated FTDI_FT800 & FTDI_FT801 libraries available for download now on our GitHub page! The code successfully complies on version 1.8.1

Best Regards,

The pin markings from the drawing are correct.  As for the mating connectors, defining “pin 1” is arbitrary.  Yes, some Molex connectors have a small arrow/marking showing where “pin 1” is, however this pin 1 designation does not correlate with our products.  The “match” is irrelevant because the connector will work 100% the same if a device’s pin 1 is on the opposite side of where it says “pin 1” should be. I understand it helps in cases where a simple pass-thru FFC is used, to help know what side of the cable should be, however with our display products designed onto a board there would be only one way to insert the cable.
