Mcufriend LCD TFT shield with ILI9325 libraries test

Well, I notice that your shield is still available on Ebay. As far as I know, every shield like your photo in message#1 has the Green Dog problem.

Every other Shield should work 100%. However, the current ILI9341 shields that are being shipped by DealExtreme have the EXTC disabled. So you cannot read the ID or use any of the extended registers.

It is always helpful to run the LCD_ID_readreg sketch to identify exactly which controller you have. Even a write-only shield can reveal itself (or an EXTC=0 shield).



reg(0x0000) 93 25   ILI9320, ILI9325, ILI9335, ...

reg(0x00EF) 12 31 12 31 12 31   ILI9327

ILI9325 I suppose!

Anyway the image in the ebay page was different from the shield I received. You can find SPI shield in ebay but the photos show a parallel 8 bit shield like mine. It happended to me with other components, sometimes the photo is totally wrong.

Your photo in message #1 matches the shield that I bought from BG.

Ebay vendors do not always have the correct photos on their items. However, if I see an Ebay vendor that is specifically showing your device, I would avoid buying from them.

Just select lowest price from Ebay. Your shield is still there although probably from different vendors to the one that sold yours.

I have never heard of any other shield with the Green Dog feature.
