My Optrex LCD

Post by chessman » Wed Sep 24, 2003 12:58 pm

I have a large Optrex graphic LCD, model DMF-50840.<p>It doesn't have a controller.<p>I'm still a n00b when it comes to a lot of aspects of electronics, so I'm asking if someone can look over the data sheet and tell me if a SED1330-compatible controller could be made from a PIC? If it can be done, I can write the code without a problem.<p>Also, would anyone be interested in buying or trading for the display I have? I got it in a trade without even thinking there'd be no controller....<p>It's CCFL backlit, 320x240, with a 4-bit parallel data bus.<p>The link to the datasheet can be found here<p>Thanks!

If I recall, the SED controller is basically the Toshiba without the text capability.<p>I've seen SED controllers sold separately on my wanderings about the net (as surplus).<p>Anyhow the answer is yes you can, try and hunt down the May and June issues of Elektor, they have precisely this using an 8051uC.<p>You can download the software from their site [url=http://www.elektor-electronics.co.uk,]www.elektor_electronics.co.uk,[/url] click on Free Downloads and then on June issue (#302) the software is there.<p>Also if you click on Hyperlinks for the two months there are some suggested reading sites Seiko and Eio<p>Colin<p>[ October 03, 2003: Message edited by: bodgy ]</p>
