NHD_12232KZ_mega.ino with arduino mega
« on: March 26, 2014, 06:54:35 AM »
Hi, I have the sketch from Mike LaVine loaded in the mega.  It only makes a cursor across the entire screen.  I don't know how to use it to make letters or numbers.  I'm hoping Mike will shed some light on this for me.  I want to use it to display radio channels and frequencies.  I'd also like to use the mega as a 2kc clock for the display.

The Arduino sketch I made only is meant to show how to initialize the display, and write data to the display RAM.  You should see alternating stripes on the display with this code.  If you would like to display characters (letters or numbers), you would need to accomplish this in software by using your own font table.  This is a graphics display and it is written to as such.  You should be able to find many different font tables on the Internet.  Here is one below, for example:

Code: [Select]
unsigned char Ascii_1[97][5]={     // Refer to "Times New Roman" Font Database...
                        //   Basic Characters
    {0xFF,0xFF,0xFF,0xFF,0xFF},     //   (  0)    - 0x0000 Empty set
    {0x00,0x00,0x4F,0x00,0x00},     //   (  1)  ! - 0x0021 Exclamation Mark
    {0x00,0x07,0x00,0x07,0x00},     //   (  2)  " - 0x0022 Quotation Mark
    {0x14,0x7F,0x14,0x7F,0x14},     //   (  3)  # - 0x0023 Number Sign
    {0x24,0x2A,0x7F,0x2A,0x12},     //   (  4)  $ - 0x0024 Dollar Sign
    {0x23,0x13,0x08,0x64,0x62},     //   (  5)  % - 0x0025 Percent Sign
    {0x36,0x49,0x55,0x22,0x50},     //   (  6)  & - 0x0026 Ampersand
    {0x00,0x05,0x03,0x00,0x00},     //   (  7)  ' - 0x0027 Apostrophe

    {0x08,0x0C,0x0E,0x0C,0x08},     //   ( 95)  upward facing triangle/arrow
    {0x08,0x18,0x38,0x18,0x08},     //   ( 96)  downward facing triangle/arrow

};

To use something like this you need to create a function in your software.  For more details on how the display maps its RAM please refer to the controller's datasheet:
http://www.newhavendisplay.com/app_notes/SBN1661G.pdf
More specifically, pages 18-23.

Thanks Mike.  I'll try this example you provided.  When you used this display with the mega, did you generate the 2kc clock with the mega or from an external function generator?

I used an external function generator for the clock signal.
