Unfortunately we do not sell any 5" screens in our shop. The closest size that i can recommend to you is the 4.3" screen.
Please look again. I am talking about this display:https://shop.mikroe.com/riverdi-50-res
clearly in your shop. It is even sold though several of your distributors here in the US, for instance:https://www.digikey.com/products/en?key ... IKROE-2170
I need to display more information than a 4.3" display would be suitable for.
So my question is, is the riverdi-50-res/MIKROE-2170 display compatible with VTFT?
As this display has the same resolution and controller as the 7" display, my question would apply to the following display as well:https://shop.mikroe.com/riverdi-70-res
If this display works, the 5" should too.
But my question is also general with respect to displays that use the FT8xx contollers. Does frequent update of numbers and plots on screen cause any problems?
Or am I better off with a display that use the SSD1963 controller like theTFT Proto 5”:https://shop.mikroe.com/tft-proto-5-board
The 4.3" screens that i would recommend for you are these two screens:
This screen is nice for prototyping.
It does not involve any additional components except the jumper wires that you would use to connect it to your development board.
The code can be generated from Visual TFT.
[Riverdi display 4.3 and Riverdi click]https://shop.mikroe.com/riverdi-clickhttps://shop.mikroe.com/riverdi-43-res
This is also a great display.
It can connect to our mikroBus socket with a riverdi click that the link was provided above.
Both of this displays are supported by our Visual TFT.
Only thing that would need to be created is a custom Visual TFT scheme for a chosen micro controller.
If you need any more information. Feal free to contact us directly at our help desk page by submitting a ticket. https://helpdesk.mikroe.com/
The EVE boards are out of question as they will require a compiler for the FT90x. I do not want to start out with a new for me unknown type of mikrocontroller. BTW, I am using surface mount technology with KiCad to produce my custom boards with stencil/reflow technique so I can deal with the ZIF connector (gone are the crazy days of hardwiring...), so I would forego the development board stage for this one, but click boards are listed as available both for the Riverdi 5 and 7" displays.
