Add to project

Packages from this repository are uploaded to Espressif's component service. You can add them to your project via add-dependancy, e.g. add-dependency esp_lcd_touch_stmpe610==1.0.0

Alternatively, you can create idf_component.yml. More is in Espressif's documentation.

Example use

Initialization of the touch component.

    esp_lcd_panel_io_handle_t tp_io_handle = NULL;
    esp_lcd_panel_io_spi_config_t tp_io_config = ESP_LCD_TOUCH_IO_SPI_STMPE610_CONFIG(EXAMPLE_PIN_NUM_TOUCH_CS);
    ESP_ERROR_CHECK(esp_lcd_new_panel_io_spi((esp_lcd_spi_bus_handle_t)SPI2_HOST, &tp_io_config, &tp_io_handle));

    esp_lcd_touch_config_t tp_cfg = {
        .x_max = CONFIG_LCD_HRES,
        .y_max = CONFIG_LCD_VRES,
        .rst_gpio_num = -1,
        .int_gpio_num = -1,
        .flags = {
            .swap_xy = 0,
            .mirror_x = 0,
            .mirror_y = 0,

    ESP_LOGI(TAG, "Initialize touch controller STMPE610");
    ESP_ERROR_CHECK(esp_lcd_touch_new_spi_stmpe610(tp_io_handle, &tp_cfg, &tp));

Read data from the touch controller and store it in RAM memory. It should be called regularly in poll.


Get one X and Y coordinates with strength of touch.

    uint16_t touch_x[1];
    uint16_t touch_y[1];
    uint16_t touch_strength[1];
    uint8_t touch_cnt = 0;

    bool touchpad_pressed = esp_lcd_touch_get_coordinates(tp, touch_x, touch_y, touch_btn, &touch_cnt, 1);
