TFTs / Re: NHD-10.1-1024600AF-LSXV-CTP #SUPPORT

Please note that the NHD-10.1-1024600AF-LSXV#-CTP does not utilize a "controller board".

The TFT display uses a LVDS interface. LVDS is quite straight forward, and is just parallel data serialised 7:1. The RGB, DE, and syncs go in defined places.

Does your source output LVDS?

Welcome to the forum  8)

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!
Character LCDs / NHD-C0216CiZ-FN-FBW-3V No ACK
« Last post by mohammed on August 10, 2017, 02:04:36 PM »

Currently I am trying to get a character to display on the screen and I cant seem to get it to work. I noticed that in the init of the lcd whenever a odd bit this passed into the while loop it never breaks. So I never get passed that step. Furthermore, I hooked up the sda and scl lines to a scope and saw that the ack never happened when there was a odd bit passed in. I am using the same specs that were recommended and I am also using the bit banger code provided in the documentation.

This is the init code                                                                                         
void init_LCD()  {
                                                                                                                     And here is the code where I get suck in the while loop
                                                                                                                       void I2C_out(unsigned char j)    //I2C Output { 
                                                                                                                       int n; 
                                                                                                                       unsigned char d; 
                                                                                                                           SCL = 0;   
                                                                                                                           SCL = 1;   
                                                                                                                           SCL = 0;   
                                                                                                                           SCL = 1; 
OLEDs / Controller questionfrom a newbie
« Last post by traianm on August 09, 2017, 05:26:03 PM »
Hi All,

I'm new to this forum, and 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.
OLEDs / spontaneous reverse mode with NHD-0420CW
« Last post by jcasey on August 09, 2017, 12:30:03 PM »
Hi -   I used an NHD-0420CW for a recent product.   Early on, I noted that sometimes it powered up reversed, so I appended a control 0x20 to the init sequence, and that seemed to fix it.   I have delivered a couple units, and now the customer says that one of them spontaneously reversed itself and won't go back normal on powerup.   I'm perplexed.

Below is my init sequence, applied once at powerup.  I never use reverse at all, but I do go back and forth between 3-line and 4-line format (3-line with middle line double size), so am regularly sending control sequences for this.      (Edit - I'm talking to this in SPI mode, if that matters.)

  1)  I don't understand something, and need to be sending additional init, or regularly goosing mode.
  2)  The LCD is damaged (client did mention something about a power outage during an electrical storm, but system is well grounded and good filtering on line input).
  3)  I'm using the ribbon connector soldered on the back, and perhaps it came loose during shipment, might be an intermittent pin connection.
  4)  ???

This is high end hardware for a national lab, high visibility.  I'm a bit embarrassed over this, need a confident fix fast.  Please help.
(System is running ARM-ASM on an NXP LPC2468 cpu, bare assy, no os.)

Problem Solved!! Got my board in and plugged it in. Works like a champ!! It even uploads and works fine with only USB power.

Lesson learned - stick with the genuine article. You may not be saving anything with the cheaper ones.

Thanks for the help!!

Accessories / Re: Capacitive touch panel with FocalTech controller FT6236
« Last post by Ciccone on August 04, 2017, 12:42:19 AM »
I am using CTP with controller FT6236 - I can get read registers over I2C and also get touch point co-ordinates (x,y values) also can get how many touch points - i.e. 1 or 2. But I am not able to get gesture ID - it always returns 0, I need to get single finger touch gestures like move up, move down, move left, move right or two fingers touch zoom in or zoom out. How can I get this? Are there any register settings that I am missing?
Thanks in advance..

Hi Silas, I hope you're still around. I'm trying to use the FT6 controller too, did you get it to work?
