Last update: June 8, 2018
We will be connecting the GT-EP to a PC and installing the driver for the module.
We want to hook up power to the module. Solder a 5 pin male header onto this connector (pic) and put 5 volts of power into it.
Supply power for GT-EP.
Connect to PC with USB cable.
You will see Windows trying to automatically install driver software. The module will be seen as a TW series panel.
GT-EP is based on Noritake UK’s TFT TW-Series
A driver will not automatically be found which is fine. You can hit close and in iDevTFT go over to USB transfer and hit install USB driver.
This will pull up a wizard to install the driver. So click Next.
And click install this driver software anyway.
When the installation is complete, hit Finish.
If the installation was successful, you can see the resulting COM port in Device Manager.
