Make time almost a year a few friends over the net, create a team to reverse and learn about FTDI screens with chip based FT8xx.
We are @TFTLCDCyg, @lightcalamar and @RndMnkIII
First of all thank the extraordinary work of @jamesbowman and make your GD2 library.
We modify from your work so that other MCUs work for example on FT81x screens, know the limitations of FT800 or FT801 by their resolution and we want to give more life to these screens.
The team believe to be the best screens in the market, possibly other GPU graphics will be more complete, but we think about FTDI and its FT8xx chip.
We have modified and always respecting the authorship of @jamesbowman, we have not deleted lines, we have cleared, added more codes to make libraries to evolve in other MCUs or with screens of greater resolution.
In the same line we have modified the GD2assets tool, both for Linux or Windows and for example have overcome the barrier of FT800 RAM and now operate assets with FT81x screens with 1 MegaBytes of RAM.
Make less than a month working with STM32 MCUs and get FT8xx screens to work from the original @jamesbowman library for Arduino DUE. Last success is to make microSD reader, series STM32F103x ...
But we look for more horizons, wish in a few days to publish our totally altruistic collaboration with the permission of @jamesbowman, and to repeat without its great library we can not see these beautiful screens working our projects, because times change and think that evolve to be the best.
Greetings from the Team.
