I recently separated the hardware bus communication code from my video driver code. I thought I was slick.

Then I ran into the RA8875. I had forgotten that during the initialization phase, it must run at 1/20th of the speed of normal over an SPI bus.

I already don't care for this chip. It's odd how it works, relatively slow unless you forward all the shape drawing and font drawing to the onboard functions that do it, relying on its "hardware acceleration" which shouldn't even be necessary but it only operates at 20MHz.

No other devices require a slowdown during the initialization phase.

So now I'm wondering about this. I really don't want to add that one-off to my API, but it looks like I'll have to.

If I had never factored the bus into a separate interface this wouldn't be an issue. Sigh | :sigh:
