LCD interface with AT91SAM9263-EK

Started by Amandeep Bhullar August 28, 2009
Hi Friends,

We are using AT91SAM9263-EK for evaluating our application before we start
designing our own AT91SAM9263 board. We already have Emdebian Linux Lenny 5
running on our AT91SAM9263-EK and Qt libraries that we need our for our
application to run. We believe that the LCD interface provided with the
evaluation kit is too small for evaluating our application and want to
connect a larger (Almost double in length, same width) LCD to it just for
evaluation purposes. The one we want to use is HITACHI TX16D11VM2CCA with
it.

Please direct me to a solution on how we can do it? Since we need it just
for proper evaluation of our software on the board; we would prefer a
quicker solution.

Thanks in advance for helping.

I think I don't understand the question:

First, make sure that you've got a physical adapter between the
connector on the AT91SAM9263-EK and whatever the pinouts on your new
display are. Order the proper connectors and cables, use a printed
circuit board prototyping service to build a board that remaps the
pinouts, solder the whole thing up.

Second, look in the softpack for your board, there should be an
lcd-slideshow-project. In "main.c" there's an "InitializeLcd" function,
you'll need to replace the various "BOARD_" constants with the ones
appropriate to your LCD. These constants are defined in
at91lib/boards/at91sam9263-ek/board.h, and most of them are probably
already appropriate to your device.

Hi Dan, Thanks for replying. I beleive you understood the question very
well. Where do I find the softpack for the board??
I will try what you suggested and ge back to you with further questions.

Thanks again.
Have a good weekend.
