## Add to project

Packages from this repository are uploaded to [Espressif's component service](https://components.espressif.com/).
You can add them to your project via `idf.py add-dependancy`, e.g.

```
    idf.py add-dependency esp_lcd_gc9503==1.0.0
```

Alternatively, you can create `idf_component.yml`. More is in [Espressif's documentation](https://docs.espressif.com/projects/esp-idf/en/latest/esp32/api-guides/tools/idf-component-manager.html).

## Example use

For most RGB LCDs, they typically use a "[3-Wire SPI + Parallel RGB](https://focuslcds.com/3-wire-spi-parallel-rgb-interface-fan4213/)" interface. The "3-Wire SPI" interface is used for transmitting command data and the "Parallel RGB" interface is used for sending pixel data.

It's recommended to use the [esp_lcd_panel_io_additions](https://components.espressif.com/components/espressif/esp_lcd_panel_io_additions) component to bit-bang the "3-Wire SPI" interface through **GPIO** or an **IO expander** (like [TCA9554](https://components.espressif.com/components/espressif/esp_io_expander_tca9554)). To do this, please first add this component to your project manually. Then, refer to the following code to initialize the GC9503 controller.

```c
    ESP_LOGI(TAG, "Install 3-wire SPI panel IO");
    spi_line_config_t line_config = {
        .cs_io_type = IO_TYPE_EXPANDER,     // Set to `IO_TYPE_GPIO` if using GPIO, same to below
        .cs_expander_pin = EXAMPLE_LCD_IO_SPI_CS,
        .scl_io_type = IO_TYPE_GPIO,
        .scl_expander_pin = EXAMPLE_LCD_IO_SPI_SCK,
        .sda_io_type = IO_TYPE_GPIO,
        .sda_expander_pin = EXAMPLE_LCD_IO_SPI_SDO,
        .io_expander = expander_handle,     // Set to NULL if not using IO expander
    };
    esp_lcd_panel_io_3wire_spi_config_t io_config = GC9503_PANEL_IO_3WIRE_SPI_CONFIG(line_config, 0);
    esp_lcd_panel_io_handle_t io_handle = NULL;
    ESP_ERROR_CHECK(esp_lcd_new_panel_io_3wire_spi(&io_config, &io_handle));

 * The array should be declared as static const and positioned outside the function.
