TFT Touch Shield v2.2 (Seeed Studio) ILI9341 and Mbed LPC1768 Board

Hi all, I am trying to get the TFT Touch Shield v2.2 (Seeed Studio) 2.8 Inch ILI9341 to work with the Mbed LPC1768 board to no avail.
Is it necessary to make a modification (Hardware) on the TFT Shield Display 2.8 Inch v2.2 ILI9341 (Seeed Studio) ?


I don’t see anywhere V2.2 only V2.0 - Arduino Displays - Seeed Studio.

Some of the control signals for the TFT Shield are not connected to the Arduino headers by default. Instead, they connect to a small 2x3 header, which isn’t present on the many platforms like FRDM-KL25Z, ST F401RE, LPCXpresso 1549 etc. There are 3 solder jumpers - P1, P2, and P3 - that will connect the signals when bridged. Simply heat them up with a soldering iron and bridge them together.

The Display I have is from version 2.2. (image attached).
I actually tried the library from the link you shared, but I don’t get anything on the screen.


Hmm, it seems like not very well documented change.

How did you connected it? In this state you need put wires for SPI to the blue connector.
