  • This is really surprising. The serial protocol described in their older literature (no longer available from their site) does not seem to work from many other micros (mostly Atmel, some TI). We unfortunately designed around this paperweight and now have to pull it out after receiving no help from 4D.

  • NO! You cannot do this easily. The module is designed to be a standalone and though 4Dsystems says they support the serial interface, there is no documentation any longer on it. In addition, serial comms do not work with these displays as described in the older manuals. They are BASICALLY USELESS unless you want to just draw pretty pictures and build a system around the Goldelox. IT WILL NOT SLAVE to another processor.

  • Somehow the PDF layouts have the correct pinning but the SparkFun Eagle library has the part backward. This would have been nice to know a few k$ in boards ago.

No public wish lists :(
