Would there someone be interested in a S65 display (LP02....) driver? If so I shall try to be cleaner and more descriptive in my recent adaptation...
Here a quite explicite but not so recent link for an AVR adaptation www.superkranz.de/christian/S65_Display/DisplayIndex.html (http://www.superkranz.de/christian/S65_Display/DisplayIndex.html)

deSilva: I'd have interest, because I bought one of those... and still did not make anything with it :-(. That display is really nice, sadly is a bit small...
So beta tester here !!!

Edit: I have the LS20 version http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Yes I am interested. I have such a Display here, that waits for a long time to be driven by a Propeller. But it was never the first entry in my list of projects...
I have the Epson version (L2F50..), but I hope I can reuse some of your code.

I've got the Nokia knock-off 128x128 from Sparkfun. I suppose it's a similar thing... I would like a driver that allows enough text to be visible to use something like FemtoBasic. Also, in case FemtoBasic doesn't have pixel or line drawing commands, I'd like to see those added...

I have a feeling that with all the "Green" stuff going on and everybody wanting to recycle cell phones, that these displays are going to get dirt cheap soon...

deSilva: What kind of font are you thinking about?

Have a look at Clemens thread about the DOGM display!
It is easy to use the ROM font 16x32, i.e. = 8x5 huge chracters!
They can be reduced by 2 and look still nice = 16x10
Clemens' 6x8 font will allow 24 x 20 characters, but most likely unreadable http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

My main objective is graphics. It shall work mainly with GRAPHICS.SPIN (and the vector font)

@Ariba: Christian has hacked all three kinds of controllers (and they differ!) , but has published it as AVR code only... Let's see..

I was thinking about a 6x6 proportional font for my Nokia display...

It COULD be possible. The display is supersharp - in contrast to a VGA monitor - but the glyphs must have a minimal size nevertheless, so with a 43 mm height per 176 pixels, 6 pixels will be 1.4 mm...

Here's an old 7x8 variable width font that I used for the Palm OS some time ago... I think it's close to what we want...

The average width would probably be about 4, maybe 5. At 4 the Nokia 128x128 screen would be 16x32 chars, which is about the same as the VGA_text driver...

the PFN file is just text...

But, my watch uses a 6x6 proportional font that actually looks pretty good...

1.4 mm in height?
All HD44780 drivers don't use more than 7 dots, but EACH of them is generally 1.4 mm - at least http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

deSilva,

I would be very interested in such driver!

Thanks,

I'd be quite interested :)
