Hello

I am new to interfacing graphics LCDs with microcontrollers

I need books or tutorials for this

I am not limited to a certain microcontroller (anything will be good)

thanks

Hello,

Interfacing displays like the ones from 4D systems allow for a lot of functionality using simply serial commands.

Other more generic graphical LCDs operate with a matrix of 1-bit (monochrome) or 8 to 16-bit (color) memory locations per pixle. Normally to interface to a display you need to look at the driver chip being used and then get the datasheet for that as all of the commands and the signal timings will be explained. Its also good to get a piece of confirmed working source code for your display or driver chip as this simplifies the process.

I'm also want trying to use Graphic LCD. I found on internet many driver for Graphic LCD, but I did't buy any GLCD yet.
What is normal driver for GLCD and which is easiest?

Here are a few GLCD tutorials with various microcontrollers:

Interfacing KS0108 based 128×64 Graphical LCD with AVR MCU

Lab 20: Interfacing a KS0108 based Graphics LCD (Part 1)

Lab 20: Interfacing a KS0108 based Graphics LCD (Part 2)

Philips LPC2000 ARM7TDMI controller with a KS0108/KS0107-based graphics-LCD (128*64 pixels)

ST7565 GLCDs and Arduino

Graphic LCD Library

Of course if you specify the exact GLCD, microcontroller and compiler used in your design, a tutorial which is a closer match to your project can most likely be posted.

There are at least two KS0108 compatible GLCDs available in the Proteus libraries.

The specifications of the KS0108 are covered in the several of the tutorials I previously posted.

Hi BigDogguru,

Currently I'm doing GLCD model JHD12864E interface with Atmega32 prototype project(not with any Arduino's kit).
I wanna ask my GLCD model JHD12864E will be same as KS0108?
And is it compulsory install ProGFX software?

Yes, the JHD12864E has a KS0108 Compatible Chipset.

The first tutorial previously posted discusses the JHD12864E interface with an AVR:

Interfacing KS0108 based 128×64 Graphical LCD with AVR MCU

JHD12864E Datasheet

JHD12864E Graphics LCD


And is it compulsory install ProGFX software?
ProGFX is an AVR graphics library for KS0108 Compatible GLCDs, including the JHD12864E.

Thx for your links.
But I'm not using any kit as shown as the link, there is error for my coding.
If I connected every GLCD's pins to Atmega32 pins, suppose need set for DDRA, DDRB and so on right?
In case I'm using external crystal 8MHz, can support for it?
