I am a complete newb to using TFT’s and how the graphics system work in Linux. That said I have a need to connect a colibri iMX7D to a newhaven display that uses a 16bit MPU mode interface (model #NHD-2.4-240320CF-CTXI#-FT).
Reading through the iMX7 manual I see that the LCD controller can be used for this purpose but I don’t know how to go about it. There will be limited graphics (button icons, etc.) maybe, but mostly I need to be able to display text in different font sizes.
Can someone point me to further reading, samples, explanations of how this would/could work. I would love to see an explanation of the graphics software stack. Who does what, where, etc.
I’m not looking for anyone to solve my problem specifically, but I would very much a appreciate guidance on how to approach this. Some idea of how it would work
