multiple devices on the 16bit LCD bus

ok just 2 devices to start

but - has anyone tryed this ? i'm considering using the 16bits to interface with an PATA/IDE SSD

Well it's not really a 16-bit bus, it's 14-bits as far as the LCD is concerned and it's more like 6-bits as far as the Arduino is concerned.

but - has anyone tryed this ?

Yes, look here -->,5014.0.html


I'd have to use 16 data (+8 for control) should have mentioned TFT not the LCD have a 7"tft panel on a Due .. (should be plenty of I/Os ..) & have to do bidirectional 3state level shifts for 16bits unidirectional level shifts for 8bits hmmm...
