Curious to why you ran the pin holes in a slalom configuration?

The Arduino DUE runs at 84Mhz.

Nice work. I'm wanting to do something similar with the mini-pro... where I put in pull down resistors on 6 of my digital inputs.... and then voltage dividing resistors for 4 or 7 (application dependent) 3mm LEDs. Of course I can punt the resistors if I go with the 8mhz 3.3 variety.

I want to permanently mount an RJ45 header for the inputs (I'll run power, 6 inputs and a spare down a section of Cat5e to my devices in the field) and a 9v power header for power. The inputs would of course also need a pull down resistor to ground.

Then I 'd need 10 additional pins that I just connect a  ribbon cable to, in order to accommodate the interface elements mounted on a small board on the enclosure (buttons, LEDs, etc...).

We'd love to see that code. Daniel and I each have the DUEs, CTE Shields and CTE LCDs (the 3.5, the 5 and the 7).
We are working independently and sometimes together on these issues. (Lately, I've played more with the MiniPro and have enjoyed the simplicity very much, but eventually I will get back to DUE and these LCDs).
Daniel's been focused on the 3.5... hence this thread.

I have more interest in the 5", but will use the 3.5" in my application if it proves easier to use.

I agree with your assessment... Daniel and I have talked about eliminating ALL of the other stuff except the 3.5 and 5 that we are using just to decrease the size of the libraries....both for the LCD and the Touch.

Joe,
Could you share those updated parameters with us?  For the 7" CTE LCD?  I have that one, plus the 5".

I've noted even with the new drivers.... you still have to rotate the display 180deg. (in our case the entire DUE as we are using the CTE shield as well.... which means the power connector and usb connectors are on the wrong side of our enclosure.)

Joe,
thanks for this info. I need to finish a few modifications to my 5" & 7" boards (Font ICs..which Coldtears is sending me with my latest shipment). I have more interest in the 5" version than the 7".. However, I will still be interested in looking at the parameters you are all using in the CPP file for the CTE7. I'm also working with the 3.5 480X320 LCD as well. Daniel Hernandez and I, both here in Guaymas, Sonora, Mexico, are trying to get these LCDs to suit our needs.

Cowaski,
make sure to have a look at the link below.  Apparantely new libraries are available from CTE....and a few users have derived parameters that take care of the reversing thing and a few other issues..

Note: I have now corrected the mirror issue in these drivers. I simply copied a set of parameters that I knew would display in the correct orientation  To the correct location in the " UTFT.cpp " file. In my case, the " SSD1963_800_CTE7 "section at line 2331. These parameters are for the 7" CTE display. So far everything displays and functions correctly.

In my case the parameters were obtained from a set of CTE drivers offered from " ageurtse ", a member of this form, thank you for your assistance.

I hope this will help someone else.

I haven't verified any of this... I'm still waiting for my Font ICs, so that I can solder them on my 5" and 7" versions... then I will resume testing of both of these LCDs.

What tenacity on your part to figure out the RESET button trick...with the perfect timing and all! I just ordered 2 of the Baites myself.
84  Products / Arduino Due / Re: [Finally a working EMAC library] Connecting an Ethernet PHY to Arduino Due on: April 02, 2013, 04:50:14 pm
Good news Wilfredo.

Two Taijiuinos have been sent to Oz, so that Paul & Rob can continue validation with other PHYs... as they develop their DUE work alike.

However, I do not know how to source the Ethernet PHYs that you folks are developing with.  I still have three Taijiuinos in my possession and I'd like to give it a try too.

I have one PHY in my possession,
LCTech ENC28J60 Network Module
here is the info:
http://www.lctech-inc.com/Hardware/Detail.aspx?id=588fbc2e-ecc1-4013-ac35-69bc83bda1fb
On-board ENC28J60-I/SO chip.
On-board 25MHZ crystal.
On-board HR91105A network interface.
3.3V power supply pin.
Size: 56(mm) x34(mm).

Is anyone doing any work with this one?
85  Using Arduino / Displays / Re: Loading Image into an 7" TFT LCD from SD Card on: March 29, 2013, 06:22:00 pm
Moderators... Please remove this Thread for Daniel and I.  We were working together on it (we both own 5" and 7" LCDs).  Unfortunatel, I purchased the wrong LCDs for both of us..... inadvertently I purchased the version without the Font IC, which also has the Flash for the internal image storage.

It will cause confusion if this remains....as it is simply a purchasing error on our part.

Working further with the 3.2" and 3.5" CTE LCDS on the CTE Shields.... finding they are backwards, rotated and mirrored...
Daniel saw the same thing..and posted his findings on this other thread in the Displays section...

http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,157068.msg1177939.html#new

The demos worked...
Then we went to develop our own stuff...and found the coordinates were broken it was plotting rectangles and text in the opposite corner.  the demo looked good because I had the displays rotated 180 deg...

I will no longer comment on these two items here...but put the comments in Daniel's very specific thread.
87  Using Arduino / Displays / Re: Reverse Coordinates DUE w/ CTE Shield on CTE 3.5" 480x320 R61581 LCD on: March 29, 2013, 05:53:12 pm
I am having the same problem on the 3.2".  Daniel and I are teaming up to work on this issue together.  We have the same shields, LCDs, DUEs...and unfortunately..the same exact issues...

Very frustrating to purchase products, download their demos, their libraries... then run them and the images are flipped, mirrored, rotated 180 deg. text is mirrored...bitmaps are not... etc.. etc... touchscreen counts down backwards, etc...

Is there anyone using these 3.2" and 3.5" ColdTears products where they just work?

Trying to determine if Daniel and I have a bad batch (we ordered them together).

Paul,
Let's get a Taiji-uino and it's programmer over to you. I'm all for dividing the workload and splitting expenses.
email me at odwyerpw@sonoratechnical.com with shipping info.
Peter

At some point, when you're ready just send it over my way. A sort of rob Paul to pay back Peter.
89  Products / Arduino Due / Re: Touch using CTE shield on DUE plus maybe SD card/SD card on TFT on: March 28, 2013, 04:13:21 pm
I've already sent an email off to the folks asking them just that.
90  Products / Arduino Due / Re: Touch using CTE shield on DUE plus maybe SD card/SD card on TFT on: March 28, 2013, 02:25:46 pm
OK,
Found the source of my issues... I purchased the WRONG SSD1963 LCD panels.
Cold Tears Electronics offers the 5" & 7" SSD1963 800X480 LCDs in TWO versions... With Font IC and Without. Unfortunately, I have both of them without the IC, hence the demos show garbage for the text and bitmap portions. I've ordered the correct versions now...

However, with the CTE shield, I had great success with two others offered by Cold Tears Electronics:
3.5" 480X320 R61581 LCD Controller & ADS7843 compatible Touch Controller w/ Font IC
3.2" 320X240 SSD1298 LCD Controller &  ADS7843 compatible Touch Controller w/ Font IC

We used their modified versions of the Utouch & UTFT libraries (which probably precludes adopting everyone's high speed modifications they are developing for Hennings Libraries).

I found performance acceptable.  Touch Screen Worked. It's a little weird using a utility to load from the SDCard into the Built-In Flash...and then your code calls your images from the Flash by Number. That means you can't easily just stick new images on and SD Card and modify your sketch. Instead you have a finite number of images to work with. That's ok. My preference is the 480 as the visual quality is very good.

The other odd thing is for the 3.5" screen with a resolution of 480X320, the Touch Screen has a resolution of 509X264. For the 3.2" screen with a resolution of 320X240, the touch screen had the same resolution of 509X264. So in my code I will resolve the difference by scaling the data I receive from the touch controller to match my graphical coordinates:
Screen Res X = 480 - (Touch Res X * 0.9375)
Screen Res Y = (Touch Res Y * 1.2121)
Resolving it this way should help with deciding what object (slider, button, toggle) was manipulated by the user. Without re-inventing the wheel I'll need to see how some folks went about creating an object oriented approach.
