As mentioned, did anyone already used this chip in a project, and what are the thoughts about the abilities?
While thinking of updating an existing project, my first candidate was a LPC178X, with embedded TFT driver(looking to use WQVGA or bigger), it has all I need and even more, also thought about using a SSD1963, but they aren't cheap and you need at least an 8bit wide data bus if you want some acceptable refresh(data) rates.
One of the advantages of the FT800 is that it uses SPI or I2C, which one can connect to a rather simple(small) ÂµC, has embedded ram, touch and sound interface and real nice embedded widgets to build up some nice GUI's.
So I downloaded the API for the FT800, which also uses a Arduino as a platform, but I'm rather a bit disappointed on the way it's written, also not much comment's on what's really happening.
Also some of the exiting commands(or widgets, like the gauge or clock) are nice but in the mean time limited; as far as I understand it's not possible to add tick marks or labels.
Anyone any experience with them and has suggestions?
