  1. Great! That's all the information I was looking for! Thanks a lot @guidol
  2. I'm currently designing a PCB which will use a nanopi duo board. Unfortunately it is not in stock at the moment so I can't order one yet to verify some measurements. Can someone (@guidol or @larry bank maybe?) who has one sitting on their desk please give me the following info; - Distance between headers. Total width is 1" so I guessed 0.9"... Is this correct? - length of the pin headers. So I know how high it will sit on the PCB - total height of the pins + PCB - is there anything on the bottom PCB which is higher than the plastic on the pin headers? In other words; can I push the whole module all the way down to a PCB and then only have the thickness of the plastic of the pin headers? Or is something "sticking" out.. - How much does the heatsink add to the total thickness? (Or what is the thickness of the heatsink...) Thanks in advance for your help and time.
  3. I don't think aplay supports MP3. Use mpg123 for that..
  4. Which header are you connecting to? Single row or double row? You need to connect between pin 7 or pin 8 and pin 2 on the single row header...
  5. Shorting the power line to ground through a (relative) high resistance flat cable... Check if there are no strands touching at the end of the flatcable (at the connector)

    Real time clock DS3231

    Thanks for the script... I had to adapt it a little, since the script assumes there is a module installed with EEPROM... My question is why...? I have a module without EEPROM ( https://www.aliexpress.com/item/New-I2C-RTC-DS1307-High-Precision-RTC-Module-Real-Time-Clock-Module-for-Raspberry-Pi/32610072259.html ) and had to change line 95 into " if [ TRUE ]; then " , since the original line doesn't work for boards without EEPROM. (It tries to evaluate "--" as a number...) Maybe you want to adapt the script in such a way that it is not depending on the presence of the EEPROM... :-)
  7. Typo from my end, it's indeed 472.. let's blame the human using a phone to type! Haha As far as I know the lower the pull ups, the higher the current, the faster the (parasitic) capacitance of the bus is charged. This should allow higher data rates. Or am I mistaken here?
  8. Those 473 (4k7) resistors are the pull ups. They are very high for a 3.3v application.
  9. @Larry Bank There is for me not a specific reason not to want to use HDMI... The big "problem" I have with the HDMI connection is the size of the connector... I don't want to have a connector stick out on the side since I want to be able to build in the display in an enclosure not much larger than the display itself. For me another option would be a display directly connected a MIPI-DSI port... But my oranges don't have it, and I do not want to use a RPi... The application itself is very lightweight, so the sacrificial OPi would actually be the complete controller :-) ..
  10. Refresh rate of 5 - 10 fps is enough for my application, as long as the update of the display seems seamless... :-) The only reason for the refresh is to make the display not feel sluggish to touch...
  11. All, I am looking for a 7 - 10" TFT display with SPI connection, and with touchscreen preferably via I2C, for a project of mine. I want to use the display to show just a static HTML page, without any window manager etc. Pretty basic principle I think. Looking at the website of www.buydisplay.com I see a few options with regards to the controllers used. The main options are: - RA8875 - RA8876 - SSD1963 I can find online references to the RA8875 being supported by fbtft, but there is also a statement on the github page of fbtft that there will be no more development of fbtft ... Before pulling the trigger on a display, I would really appreciate feedback which controller is supported by fbtft/armbian... :-) Thanks for your time.. Paul
  12. Very disappointing that the topic starter hasn't followed up...

    640x480 resolution display

    Wrong connection of the panel flat cable?

    640x480 resolution display

    I guess that means the display is faulty... 😞

    What happens when you connect the display to a pc? Or maybe a DVD player...?
