Title: NHD-3.5-320240MF-ATXL#-1
Post by: ph99004 on April 22, 2015, 12:25:55 PM
New design project using NH's 3.5 TFT display.

We would like to choose a controller with a rich C library of display controls from LCD initialization to graphic controls. In brief, we would like to display a company logo, menus, show bar progress, and audio levels. Those are the end results but I need a C library for our Freescale ARM processor that will facilitate this interaction with the LCD display.

Can you suggest a hardware set that would work well with the Newhaven display that will allow us these capabilities?

Your suggestions would be most appreciated.

Phil

Since the TFT is a just a display panel with no built-in controller, any libraries for graphics would be specific to the microcontroller you are using.  If your microcontroller has a built-in TFT controller, or if you are using an external TFT controller, you would need to differ to either your microcontroller's manufacturer, or the TFT controller's manufacfurer for any libraries they have for their chips.  Otherwise it is common such libraries can be found online.

One product we do offer allows for use with the Microchip graphics library, as it is designed on an interface board for a certain development board offered by Microchip.  The part I am referring to can be found here:
