SmartRF05EB LCD Display data sheet
I'm trying to find a datasheet on the HMC16311 LCD display, used on the SmartRF05 EB. Can anyone help? How do I write to it from an EM?
You can download the Z-Stack, or SimpliciTI and install it, once you do that, find "hal" folder, there are
two files, hal_lcd.h and hal_lcd.c, you'll get all the info you need to know in order to write to LCD.
In addition to above mentioned files you can also read the HAL_API.pdf document found in Z-Stack documents folder.
For example, you can find "hal" folder in the following location after you've installed Z-Stack (for cc2530):
"Z-stack installation folder\Components\hal\include\" (for the .h file) and
"Z-stack installation folder\Components\hal\target\CC2530EB\" (for the .c file).
I've attached those two file, just in case, however you may be missing some constants or/and macros there,
so you still can download Z-stack, or simpliciTI and get the whole picture.
Please note that these files are speciffic to cc2530EM platform!
Hope this helps,
i am new to this forum. i am using the smartrf05EB + cc2540 module for a project. i need to use the LCD for the display but the LCD HMC16311SF-PY is too big for my requirements. I may use a 1x16 or 2x16 or 1x8 graphic LCD with SPI interface. I want to know how much changes will I need to make in order to use the existing libraries (hal_lcd etc.) for the separately use LCD. Since I am in the LCD selection phase so my options are quite open and all I need to know at this moment is that how much effort will be needed for the changes and in which direction should I proceed.
Secondly, if anyone could tell me the LCD driver used in HMC16311SF-PY. because despite all other info, the driver/controller hasn’t been mentioned in the datasheet. If I know the driver I can select other LCDs with the same driver. Hopefully this might work.
Since I am new to this forum I don’t know the protocol to follow. Sorry for any mistakes.
I have attached the datasheet for the HMC16311SF-PY display. The LCD is from Hitech Displays (http://www.hitech-lcd.com).
There is an abundance of LCD displays out there which supports SPI communication. When choosing an LCD for your product, make sure you look at size constraints, power consumption, supported operating range (supply voltage and temperature), durability, etc.
It is no huge task to write a HAL for the display, so I would recommend you not to let the fact that you "almost" have a HAL (for a display that is similar to the SmartRF05EB one) be the deciding factor when choosing LCD display :)
