ILI9486 320X480 8-bit BUS TFT for Arduino UNO

Sun Dec 30, 2018 5:09 pm

Hey.

I recently bought a 3.5" 320x480 LCD TFT display designed for the Arduino Uno with an ILI9486 interface and an 8-bit data bus.
I was looking on the Internet if there is a chance to connect such a display to Raspberry Pi but unfortunately I did not find anything specific.
Does anyone have an idea how to connect individual pins and how to configure the display eg using the FBTFT library?

The display pins look like this:

And it can be bought eg here:

Thank You for all the tips and hints.

Best regards,

You need to determine the function of each pin and what voltage levels are expected. Bear in mind that Arduinos run on 5v logic, while the logic pins of the Pi run at 3.3v.
