Hi

I've been using PICs for a few years and I want to build a project using an 2.4" TFT+touch screen based on ILI9341. This is the best tutorial/library I have found so far, translated into English from German using google translate.

I plan to code in C in MPLAB. I've yet to select an appropriate PIC, but I'll be using a HC-12 module too and the touch screen so I'll need 3 SPIs. Are there any recommendations or other tutorials+libraries that I can start using quickly with PICs?

Any guidance appreciated.

Use the select line allowing you to connect multiple SPI devices to one MPU SPI port.
Make them all slave and use slave's interrupt to create a priority mechanism.

Ah right, that's how to do it. I had just glossed over the "enable" pins on SPI modules in the past. Now I understand what they're for. I believe this is the CS (CSX) pin on my 2.4" TFT module
