ILI9488 support

Post by its1000 »

Hello Ciccio
and hello to all ESPAnnex fans...

do you think you could add support for the ILI9488 it seems there is some differences with ILI9341 management on two subjects : size of the screen wich is 320*480 and color depth wich is 24Bits instead of 16Bits.

the interest of this screen is being cheap (around 12$) adding much more resolution to screen more stuff...

I tried the screen directly connected as an ILI9341 but unfortunately does not work.
if you want me to send you one 9488 for the developpment, tell me by MP.

thank you very much if you think you can do it.
best regards to all of you

Yes, it could be supported but do not forget that 2 TFT displays @480x320 px resolution are already supported (including touchscreen) :

ILI9486
[Local Link Removed for Guests]

ST7796
[Local Link Removed for Guests]

Both are very cheap and availble easily from the classic online sellers .

dear ciccio. I have a smal question regarding the 9486.
does it works with ESP8266 or only the ESP32?

i tried with an ESP 32 with Annex, but no success using the 3.5RPI ili9486 Screen.
in the esp8266 documentation you init the tft with this line :
TFT.INIT 16, 4, 1 ‘ (16 is the pin for CS, 4 is the pin for D/C, 1 is the landscape orientation)

but you don't do it for the ESP32 doc, only TFT.init 1 (for orientation)

no need to declare SPI CS and DC on ESP32?

thank you for your help...

So I don't know if works with ESP8266, but works PERFECT with ESP32... a little bit of tests before having it working fine, but now it works perfect.

Just a quick question, is it possible to avoid the starting screen with the 2Dcode and IP connection?
because I will integrate the screen in a finished amplifier (tube amplifier) and it is not a huge issue, but better if it goes directly to the starting screen...

thank you for your help

No, this is not actually possible as the display is defined in the configuration page.

Hi, its1000,
the ili9486 it is only supported by the ESP32.
You can check in the ESP8266 documentation (use the key F2 when in the editor page) to have the list of the display supported.
