    PSoC Graphics Component for Color LCD Shield

    Mark Hastings

      Attached is a component that I created for the Color Graphics LCD shield based on the Nokia 6100 display. They can be found at Sparkfun and other web sites such as ElecFreaks and even Ebay.  There are two versions of the display, one with a Philips controller and another with an Epson controller.  I tested the one with the Philips controller, but could not find one with the Epson controller test it.  If anyone knows where I can get one with a Epson controller, let me know and I'll test it and make updates if needed. 

         

      It is hardware compatible with the new (Arduino hardware compatible) PSoC 4 CY8CKIT-042 board as well as the FreeSoC Explorer board that uses the PSoC 5LP.  The component of course supports both PSoC 4 and PSoC 5LP and has been optimized for a 32-bit controller.   You can also easily wire it to one of the other Cypress Development boards with a few jumper wires.

         

      Below is a couple of  places you can get the display shield.  The one from ElecFreaks is very bright, but you need to add one more signal to drive the backlight control, (D10 Arduino) or P3[4] high on the PSoC 4 CY8CKIT-042 board.  The display I purchased from Ebay also work right out of the box.

      The attached file contains the component library and a simple program that provides example code for most of the functions.  I plan to post a PSoC4 and PSoC 5LP waveform display project in a week or two as well, that uses this same display if there is any interest.  The example project is for a PSoC4, but it can be changed to a PSoC 5LP as well.
