Problem with ST7735S controller lcd display

Tue Jul 17, 2018 4:48 pm

Hello everyone
I've just bought a lcd display to show an image with, is this one: ... 0000000000
The problem is that I'm new in this world and I don't know how to set it up and thought I've searched for information I can't get the way to make it work.
Any ideas?

If the only difference between ST7735S and ST7735R is the resolution (128x64 instead of 128x160), then you may be able to use fbcp-ili9341 to drive the display, by changing this line ... 735r.h#L23 to do 64 instead of 160. See

If there are other differences between the two, then fbcp-ili9341 probably does not apply (and may be a waste of time). In that case, try searching the web for driver code or libraries from projects that have successfully used ST7735S, and/or try to find the spec sheet to see if you can develop or port a driver for it.

Good luck!
