larsie 121 Posted January 20, 2012 Share Posted January 20, 2012 EDIT: I've entered some summary information about the board here, so you don't have to browse through the whole thread.Button board: 4 standard tactile buttons, that can be soldered on below the display area (not included). There is also room for a 20-pin MSP430 MCU. The standard software library supports the MSP430G2553 as the MCU, but the display can be used with other versions using bitbanging. The board can either be used by attaching it to an MSP430 Launchpad, with the MSP430 on the Launchpad, or by placing the MCU on the LCD-board. The back of the board has room for a SOT-89 LDO voltage regulator such as this (Upper right corner on the bottom, marked IC1). If you choose to attach a voltage regulator, you should also add a decoupling capacitor at C4 and C5. The power connection for the regulator is on the top left (seen from the front), above the BAT-text. Ground is on the outer pins, and the positive voltage is in the middle. For v4 of the board (blue, currently in store), the P2.0 pin is attached to the backlight through a pre-soldered resistor. Touch board: The board is a standard size Boosterpack for the MSP430 Launchpad which can snap onto the Launchpad. The board comes with female headers soldered on. There are 4 capacitative touch button areas below the display, marked A, B, C and D. These are connected to pins P2.2, P2.1, P2.4 and P2.3 respectively. CCS Touch Code is here. (A forum post later in this thread). General info: Example code for IAR is available on https://github.com/mobilars/LarsLCD . If you have requests for new features or input, please use the 43oh Forum topic for the display to give input. CCS code is available here (touch-support isn't in the example, but I've got it running myself so ask if you need it.) The boards are based on the Powertip PE9665WRF display with the ST7579 controller. The screen is small (28x19mm viewable area) and requires little power (0.2mA). It is SPI-based, has backlight and has 96 GeekDoc, RobG, colgs3b and 1 other 4 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
