Firewing Color TFT Library


smallTFT2I just want to share a new feature to Firewing which I have

worked on with David Barker.

The Firewing Color TFT Library 




The Design of the Firewing TFT Library was based around a 320 x 240 pixel TFT Shield (Model: IM120417012). The TFT driver for this TFT Display is based on the S6D112 with 8bit data control interface, One of the great things about this shield is that its pin compatible with the Firewing main board, Another great feature of the IteadStudio shield is that it also features an on board SD Card slot which is also compatible with the Firewing SD Card Library.

Currently the Firewing Color TFT library supports S6D1121 320 x 240 colour display. Library is designed so that new drivers can easily be added.

Please check out here for more infomation:

You can also buy Firewing boards from Proto-PIC or Mecanique.

The TFT shield that we used was from Iteadstudio, you can find them here: 2.4 TFT LCD Touch Screen Shield

The links have been straightened out in this article. Sorry for any confusion the broken links caused.

The display shield presented in this article is currently available at a special price of US$19 from iTead. Check out the link in the article.

It should be fairly easy to get this display working with Swordfish Basic. The Firewing drivers are based on the Swordfish drivers.

Jon Thanks for fixing the links.
The Firewing drivers are based on the Swordfish drivers.

I just want to say that the Firewing Graphics was based on the Swordfish GLCD, the Driver Module is for the S6D1121 which is what is currently supported by the Firewing TFT Library. but it should be easy enough to add other TFT Drivers.
