Are there libraries available for the MAX32 for interfacing to 7" TFT LCD Touchscreen displays (based on the SSD1963 LCD controller)? Here's the specific LCD board I'm using [url][/url]. There are existing Arduino libraries. I can work in MPLAB or MPIDE.

If this won't work, does anyone have any suggestions for other 7" LCD Touchscreen displays that work with the MAX32?

Appreciate any help.

The library included on your link looks to be already set up to run on chipkit:

check out what is in the the folder and source code.

It is just a variant of Henning Karlsen's work seen here: which should be compatible with the TFT driver chip.

Thanks for looking at it. I talked with coldtears tech. support and they said the library was straight Arduino and wouldn't work on chipKit or with PIC32. But I didn't actually look at the code to see for myself. Let me explore it a bit more and see what I find. I'll probably be back for more help in a bit. Again, thanks for looking at it.

The HenningKarlsen UTFT library supports the SSD1963 controller at 800x480 resolution. You will need to use the version from the HenningKarlsen website.
