There is a 1.5.5 Beta avialable in the Nightly Builds for Windows. In the readme there are comments related to SPI.
77  Development / Suggestions for the Arduino Project / Updates/Comments on Long Term DUE support on: October 17, 2013, 02:20:56 pm
Is DUE dead out of the gate?

Both of your newest releases (Yun and Tre), as well as Intels (Galileo), will revert back to AVR for 'traditional arduino functionality'.

Where does this leave SAM support? Is DUE now the red headed step child of the Arduino family?

Will you folks be revisiting the platform anytime soon? Any new revisions planned (ala TAIJIUINO's path to expose the  SAM3X built in Ethernet capabilities?) Any DUEreduex?

So, my suggestion is: Give us an update on the SAM architecture's place in the Arduino universe. Right now us early DUE adopters see nothing but a whole lot of fragmentation going on and it's all moving away from us.

The Electronics/Programming/Arduino Workshops continue in Guaymas.

Daniel Hernández, a former instructor for the Espanglish Institute, has absorbed all of the Music and Electronics workshops and is operating under his own venture "The Guaymas Workshop".

We are really excited to have Daniel pioneering this effort in Guaymas. The Guaymas Workshop maintains a friendly non-binding affiliation with the Espanglish Institute... Therefore, you can reach Daniel at

Gentlemen from Hermosillo. I missed your updates.

Presently, I live in Alamos, Sonora. However, I do travel to Guaymas, Hermosillo and Tucson on occasion.

One of my former instructors at the Espanglish Institute in Guaymas Sonora ( has branched off and opened his own Workshop...called "The Guaymas Workshop".  He has absorbed all of the Music and Electronics (Arduino) courses, as well as Elementary English.... (The Espanglish Institute
has become focused on profesional development in the maquilas.)

Daniel can be reached at: (still uses the Espanglish resources as we maintain a non-binding profesional afiliación).

I have a few projects I continue to work on...primarily concerned with wáter quality monitoring... focusing on the DUE (because of the raw pin counts, memory footprint and speed), but am hung up with the libraries like everyone else.

I've been having trouble logging into the Fórum for a very long time... It's the token stuff appended at the end of the URL..

I found a work around:

1. Open in the browser.
2. Go to the Fórum
3. Right Click on the DUE Fórum and open in another tab.
4. Click on any thread.
5. Attempt to add a REPLY to that Thread.
6. You are prompted with a Login
7. Login In....Check Remember me.
8. You will be put back at http://fó, but you can see ALL of the content...and you can navigate freely and REPLY freely and START new threads freely.

This is the ONLY way I can use the Fórums.. Logged IN... and actually see content and participate.

I am running Win7 64 Ultimate SP1 and Internet Explorer 10.  All updates are current.

Anyone else having this problema?

Yes, you are correct, I didn't mean it as a criticism.  DUE is such a work in progress... I appreciate you providing this module which eliminates all of the wiring for folks trying to develop the Ethernet libraries.  

Somewhere down the road, we will all figure out how to make the UI, Comms, and I/O portions all play nice together on DUE. Which will give us feature parity with UNO, but higher performance and greater capabilities.

I've looking forward to seeing what the folks down under will have when they release Black Diamond.

Take a look at the Taijiuino board.. It is a Due Clone.  See what they removed of the programming port.

We scheduled the workshop... Tue and Fri mornings... 10am to 12pm. Starts on Tuesday, June 3rd.

Free admission... but $250mxp (about $20usd) for the Arduino Kits.

Lets see if we can get some kids interested in learning and building fun stuff instead of spray painting graffiti all over hell and gone.

Took a look at it.  This hardware kit can't be used simultaneously with your CTE LCD shields. Bummer.  Split decision... lots of wires for the LCD or lots of wires for the Ethernet.  Oh well. The DUE platform will get there eventually.

We are going to try an Arduino Workshop at our little Language School here in Guaymas, Sonora, Mexico.
We have space for 12 students. Each Student will have their own PC with an internet connection (for going to or Jeremy Blum videos, etc..).

Students will be required to purchase a bare bones arduino uno kit.  Depending on sponsor dollars received to purchase the kits for the students, it will be somewhere between $250mxp -$400mxp. Response has been good for sponsors, so we really are hoping to get it down to $250mxp per kit. Kits belong to the student.

For the month of June...attendance is free.  We are just looking at the interest among young people to take the class... and retired engineers/techs/tinkers in assisting the students.

We will get an announcement on our websites soon: (school in Guaymas, Sonora, MX) (consulting biz in Tucson, AZ, USA

Targeting June 3 to start.
Young people can only text on their cel fones and visit facebook so many times over the long hot summer.
Likewise, Retired people can only do so much fishing and drink so much beer over the same long hot summer.
Here's an effort to point each group at more productive endeavors.

Are you targeting the Arduino 1.5x IDE as the development environment for the Black Diamond? Or will we need to adopt Atmel Studio?

The only item I can see is perhaps an EEProm for storing startup/calibration constants. How do you plan to accommodate storing of calibration data or user setup/config preferences? I suppose a microSD could be used.

87  Products / Arduino Due / Re: Due GUI on: May 06, 2013, 11:55:50 am
I'd like to see a slider control.
Up/Down push buttons for incrementing numbers.
Line Charting capability.

My biggest question is, are you able to have everything oriented properly once you initialize an instance of the LCD and Touch?  Are the Touch/Graphical coordinate planes identical? Can you display text, graphical primitives, bitmaps and your UI elements without having to call functions to reverse them, mirror them, etc....?

Will your libraries enable us to incorporate an SDFat..and just call bitmaps, jpegs, etc... directly from the SDCard and then display to the LCD, without having to always preload into the CTE Font/Bitmap IC?

Lastly, will your UI elements include some sort of Touch Event?  Or will we always have to develop our own system of keeping track of what objects/elements received a Touch when the Touch Controller indicates there is data in the touch queue?

Really interested in your UI framework.

Very essential work you are doing! Looking forward to some screen shots in the future.

Cool beans.
89  Products / Arduino Due / Re: Announcement: CTE has updated their drivers. on: May 02, 2013, 04:54:12 pm
you are doing awesome work.

I noted yesterday (May 1st) that Henning Karlsen updated his UTFT libraries to include the Elec Freaks Models: TFT01-5.0 & TFT01-7.0, which appears to be identical to Cold Tears 5" & 7" LCDs, but perhaps missing the IC Font chips.

I'll run some tests on these libraries..

We now have in our possession 3 of the 5" CTE 800X480 displays.  The first one was the one accidently purchased without a Font IC.

Cold Tears sent me an IC for it. I installed it... Meh.... doesn't work.  Still can't use fonts or load bitmaps.

We also noticed the two most recent 5" screens we received have their connector located on the exact opposite side of the LCD screen.  Strange.

Furthermore, the last two CTE DUE shields we purchased are version 1.03, as opposed to version 1.02.

We will try the 7" models next.
