Re: Nano Capability with 2.8" TFT Displays
Sounds interesting, $8 is a great price.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I assume it's something like this, 320x240 of RGB dots, qvga:
Will definitely require a special connector, I hope they are less than $8.
Down that webpage some under interfaces, they have several flavors of "8080 parallel interface".
Which sounds fun and retro, but I think I'll stick with SPI.
Could do plots and store a few fonts from the Nano, but that would be very limiting.
I'd simply spec a new processor, something between a $2 Blue Pill and a RasberryPi.
Better yet, let the builder choose the processor, run everything off of spi and i2c buses to minimize wires.
Forget 5v, most of the rest of the world did long ago.
If you do make a reasonably powerful processor possible, there are folks here that will use it.
A few possible projects we've already seen mentioned in the forum:
panadapter, usable as a very low end spectrum analyzer
sweeperino like device to plot filters
A basic 100khz bw scope, with RF mixer so can see transmitted signal
vector impedance analyzer ;-)
If the processor has the muscle to support digital modes,
a display like that makes it possible to run stand-alone.
