Ok i was thinking about this PSP LCD project and dont worry its still on. But i though why not make a simple breakout for both the PSP LCD and SSD1963 before i go messing something up or making a final PCB which will cost way more $$$… so …. so far i came upContinue reading “Thoughts of PSP”
Here is the new PCB layout so far. Its slightly larger but well worth it. Its pretty cool i guess. New version of the board is being thought of right now. I dont want to limit myself or others to the PSP LCD so im redesigning this. May be a bit larger but it willContinue reading “PSP LCD Part 2: Cont…”
Ok this schematic is just to show the horrors so far. DO NOT USE. The resistor values and some cap values are wrong. Just copied from other projects. I just wanted to post this to let everyone know i am still working on it. Also i might include a 9-10 MHZ Crystal or something. ImContinue reading “PSP LCD Part 2.. Continued”
Okay i am a bit perplexed when it comes to this. I was thinking about using a FPGA since i have one on hand but then I realized the FPGA cost about $15 from digikey while i can simply get a controller already made and save coding time on it. The SSD1963 is about $18Continue reading “PSP LCD Part 2: Selecting a Controller & Schematic”
Ok first things first, before i even try to code this puppy i want to make a basic idea of whats needed hardware and software wise. To do this lets take a look at the datasheet. (If link is down google: Sharp Datasheet LQ043T3DX02) Okay scrolling through the datasheet we hit page 7 which hasContinue reading “PSP LCD Part 1 – The hardware concept”
Take a look…. Fixed and Works like a charm!
Took a couple minutes to make this and thought id share the schematic and a sneak peek of my boards to come…
Easy as PIE! Custom LCD Controller PCB 8 pins only! 6 DATA, 2 POWER Contrast control via POT CODE
i have to admit sometimes i can be a plain idiot! I was planning on playing with the STM32F4-Discovery some more today and wired something up. I saw some magic smoke! I quickly unplugged the power to test and see where and what blew and how. I made the IDIOTIC mistake of crossing power rails.Continue reading “Being Dumb is easy”
I finally got around to changing those 200 MALE pins on the STM32F4-Discovery bored to 200 FEMALE pins by way of small board. This should allow FASTER testing and easier wiring.
