SPI freezes with tft and touch enabled together

Recommended Posts

Hi all!


I have Orange Pi Zero with armbian kernel 4.14.

i'm not sure about the topic name, but to me seems like that.


I've managed to make spi tft work flawlessly on my zero. But after i've continued with touchscreen module, i've got problems.

After X is started, i can confirm touch is working, because when i touch the display, mouse pointer moves. But in the strange way, very laggy (more than a second to respond), but is works only for ~10 secs, then display stops to redraw.

And it is not because of bad contacts! Because i've soldered everything together. And it also freezes if i don't touch it.

The system is still working tho, because i can still connect to it.

And there is all fine in dmesg log.

I've also tried lowering SPI clocks from 16M to 500K, but of no good.


I'm not very good at linux, so i don't even know where to look for errors.


For those, who is not familiar with Orange Pi Zero SPI - tft is connected directly to spi bus, touch is connected to same bus, but CE1 is not there, so it is muxed to generic gpio10.
