Discussion - Software / Dual FT813 emulation
« on: October 01, 2019, 09:25:32 PM »

We have used the FT8xx emulation for a number of product developments but now have a new design that uses two FT813s.
Is it possible to use the emulation for two LCDs at the same time? Presently it looks like it can only support being started a single time and the interface routines have no reference to a particular instance (which would presumably be necessary to allow it).

Any possibility?



Hi All

I have the following problem in the simulator and on the HW [FT800]

1: Using the following command sequence the display content is initially successfully rotated by 180°

Code: [Select]
Ft_Gpu_CoCmd_MemWrite(phost, REG_ROTATE, [b]1[/b]);

2: The following however has no effect

Code: [Select]
Ft_Gpu_CoCmd_MemWrite(phost, REG_ROTATE, [b]0[/b]);

and the display continues showing the image in its rotated form.

The rotate command doesn't reference any restrictions as to why the second use to set it back to 0 would not be accepted.
Does any one know what the problem is?



P.S. The
Code: [Select]
Ft_Gpu_CoCmd_MemWrite(phost, REG_ROTATE, [b]1[/b]);alone has no effect and the
Code: [Select]
Ft_Gpu_CoCmd_Swap(phost);is needed after it. I also don't understand how they are related.

Hi All

My name is Mark Butcher, 53, English born and based mainly in Switzerland (M.J.Butcher Consulting - http://www.mjbc.ch/), with regular periods in France and the UK.
Since 2004 I have been developing the uTasker project (available as OpenSource or supported commercial) for a number of single-chip processors which focuses today on NXP Kinetis [my favorites] (and ST Micro STM32 devices, which are also quite popular). http://www.utasker.com/

The uTasker project supports FTDI FT800 and so I will be monitoring the new forum in case anything interesting comes up. Although not a particularly exiting video the following shows how the FTDI emulator has been integrated into the uTasker simulation environment to allow complete development and testing to be performed in Visual Studio in a non-blocking environment but still using the original FTDM supplied demos (with small modifications): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XxC3Y2NaaU8
Here is a link to the announcement of this new support at the time: http://www.utasker.com/forum/index.php?topic=1947.0

Professional interests are remote working on embedded development (one of the reasons why I developed uTasker in the first place to allow complete embedded project simulation and remote debugging/support), communication stacks (TCP/IP, USB, Modbus, FAT which were developed for the uTasker project), efficient, reliable project developments (bringing together the previous ones) and supporting a base of users across the word. Have developed and supported projects for customers in >30 countries.

Personal interests are golf (although I am taking this year off) and cycling to keep fit; languages (English, German, French); and, although I don't need a car for day to day use and actively avoid using them where possible, I do enjoy some touring in sports cars and allow myself a few thousand miles a year for such travel. I have a small collection of mainly older red cars but this is what I have fun with in Europe this year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1-doYnOw8k
