Controller questionfrom a newbie

(1/1)

Hi All,

I'm new to this forum, and topic...in fact have never used a display.

Simple question: i see all these displays listing a "controller". Is this controller embedded in the display module? Or is it the controller that one is supposed to use to talk to the display?

I have a design with a PIC24F, and I would like to use a SPI protocol to talk to either an LCD or an OLED display.

To keep things simple the "Controller" or driver chip manages the display.

Take as an example the NHD-1.69-160128ASC3:

This display utilizes the SEPS525 controller and you will communicate via 4-wire SPI to your MCU.

The controller or driver chip is bonded onto the displays cable via a COF (Chip-On-Film) process.

Hope this helps!
