  • #ft843

    Hi,
    i am pretty "noob" but I have an issue with my FT843 display. I recieved it yesterday and I try to run it via SPI Bus. I just connected the display to voltage (+3.3 and gnd), nothing more. Should there be displayed something when just voltage is connected? My screen is totaly black, not even a backlight. I measured the voltage on the board, right where the FPC cable is connected to the board. Do I have to initialize the FT chip or something?

    R_max,

    According to the FT800 Programmer Guide, you must initialize the FT800. It is in page 18:
    Here is the link of the Programmers Guide:

    My I suggest you use an ADAM (Arduino Display Adaptor Module) to interface your FT843 to an Arduino.

    Please follow this link for projects you can test with your FT843:
