Choosing the correct firmware binary

  • If you have a PanelDue with the controller and TFT panel integrated on a single PCB, choose PanelDue-5.0i-7.0i.bin
  • Otherwise, if your PanelDue controller board is version 3.0 or 3.0a, choose the binary with -v3- in the name and your TFT panel size at the end
  • Otherwise, choose the binary with -v2- in the name and your TFT panel size at the end (these binaries work with version 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0 controller boards)

The integrated and -v3- binaries display a splash screen at startup. If you want to use a custom splash screen instead, choose the -nologo variant of the binary file and see https://github.com/dc42/PanelDueFirmware/blob/master/Readme.md for further instructions.

The binaries with C in the name are for 7" CPLD displays instead of the usual SSD1963 displays.

Changes since release 1.21

  • Changed dot clock polarity for supported 5" and 7" TFT panels using SSD1963 controllers. This improves display quality in some cases, especially for 7" panels.
  • Bug fix: if the Macros button was pressed and a macro subdirectory entered, the macro buttons on the Control page would run incorrect or invalid commands. Thanks to @mloidl for the second part if this fix.

Note: the 1.21.1 and 1.21.2 versions that may be pre-installed on some PanelDue 7i displays include the dot clock change but not the control page macro buttons bug fix.

These binaries are for PaneDue display controller boards versions 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, 2.0 and 3.0. The version number of your PanelDue display controller board is printed on the back of the board. If it is version 3.0 then use a binary with -v3- in the name. Otherwise, use a binary with -v2- in the name. Pick the binary whose name ends in 4.3, 5.0 or 7.0 depending on the size of your TFT panel. For the 7" panel with integrated PanelDue electronics, use the 7.0E build.

Changes since last release:

  • Hot end temperature limit increased to 1600C
  • Added builds for version 3 board
  • Added build for East Rising 7" display
