Configuration of LCD with Linux

Hello, I am trying to launch thePH320480T009-LAC03 tft with an IMX7 that uses an Yocto image. The driver that uses the tft is ST7769S, however the kernel of yocto does not provide this driver, therefore I am using the ili9486 that has a very similar operation. To configure this driver I have made the following configuration of the device tree to put the SPI 4-Line interface(First I have removed the previous configuration of mxcfb1 from the device tree):


status = "okay";

[email protected] {

compatible = "rohm,dh2228fv";

spi-max-frequency = <60000000>;

reg = <1>;

status = "disabled";


mxcfb1: [email protected] {

compatible = "ilitek,ili9486";

reg = <0>;

spi-max-frequency = <5000000>;

rotate = <0>;

buswidth = <8>;

regwidth = <16>;

reset-gpios = <&gpio 25 0>;

dc-gpios = <&gpio 24 0>;

debug = <0>;

init = <0x20000ff

The initial sequence is the recommended by the manufacturer of the tft. When I start the program, I see that the screen responds to the commands I am indicating in the initial sequence, since when the last command of that sequence is displayed (display on), the display turns on and shows many colored dots. And this is all that the screen does, when I indicate that I upload an image (I launch a program generated with the qt creator), it does not work, it still shows the colored dots. I have measured the signal that comes out of the SPI with an oscilloscope, and the signals it generates seem correct.

What could be the problem?

My theory is that the "b6h" command that is launched in the initial sequence activates a bit (RM) that is to select the RGB interface, therefore when I load an image by the SPI interface the screen ignores it, since the wait that the signal arrives for another data bus.

How would I have to configure the initial sequence to load the image by the SPI?

How would I have to configure the device tree so that it would also generate an RGB interface?
