Hard Fault w/ RA8875 & GSL1680 CTP on STM32F401RE Board

I'm running this code,

Import programPUB_RA8875_Touch

A Touchscreen example program showing the RA8875 driver library. This is easily configured for either the Resistive touch panel or the Capacitive touch panel.

on a NUCLEO-64 STM32F401RE board. I've run other tests and so far it appears that the screen writing functions are working well. I was trying to get the CTP (Capacitive Touch Panel) working with the www.buydisplay.com 5" LCD (https://www.buydisplay.com/default/5-inch-tft-lcd-display-capacitive-touchscreen-ra8875-controller-800x480).

I ran the PUB_RA8875_TouchColors demo code and that does seem to work as I'm seeing RGB color codes written to the serial port when I touch a color. Each touch sends multiple responses but that's a different issue.

This tells me that my hardware connections are correct (I also ran a completely different sample code using the Arduino IDE and that worked perfectly with the same hardware connections.

The only change in the code I made was the pin definitions:

Changes to Code

//RA8875 lcd(p5, p6, p7, p12, NC, p9,p10,p13, "tft"); 
// SPI:{MOSI,MISO,SCK,/ChipSelect,/reset}, I2C:{SDA,SCL,/IRQ}, name
RA8875 lcd(PA_7,PA_6,PA_5,PB_6,PC_7, PB_9,PB_8,PB_10,PA_8, "tft"); //For Nucleo-F401RE

The hard fault I get when I run the PUB_RA8875_Touch code is this:

Any help debugging why this hard fault is happening would be greatly appreciated!

Maybe check if you are using correct pins in



I can run the PUB_RA8875_TouchColors demo and it runs fine so I would believe that to mean that my connections and definitions are correct.
