Re: Sucess on an old TFT display

I had already decided on a dedicated support board to handle the display, Which is to work as a terminal emulator such as was used in the 1970s. These often had intentionally slow phosphors to reduce the flicker, so I can probably live with some delay. I did get some more progress on this tonight. I...

Re: Sucess on an old TFT display

I do not think that would work as there are still clocks being sent. The way these TFTs work is a command is sent followed by the data. The data is variable length. Every pixel has to be written, which is why these are so slow in SPI mode. The extra clocked bits would be seen as more data. Or else t...

Sucess on an old TFT display

Some years ago, around 2013, I was given a bunch of TD-T320 TFT displays. From time to time I would see If I could figure out how to get it to work. There was a Yahoo group, which got filled with spam. It still seems to exist, with only two posts in it. So someone cleaned out the spam. I attempted t...

Re: STM acquires Atollic

perhaps the class would be filled with attendees running out of seats if the topic been changed to "IOT:Arduino on 8051" :lol: I recall that there was an 8051 GCC, back when I was programming 8051 17 or so years ago. Actually I looked it up, it was called SDCC. The code was not too efficient and we...

Re: STM acquires Atollic

I gave a lecture last week at ESC (Embedded systems conference.) It was combined with a biotech conference as none of the foundries were there this year. (Intel was promoting Alexa, and I never did get to the Renascence(Hitachi) booth.) Most of the Booths on the ESC side were promoting "security sol...

Re: CubeMX ioc files - add a 'collecting them' thread or section?

what did they call it? Not exactly sure, this was in one of the STM postings. As I do not use python, I sort of noted it then went onto other things. I'd have to search the forums, which I do not have time to do at the moment. not sure i follow that istr a warning about renaming and then saving a C...

Re: CubeMX ioc files - add a 'collecting them' thread or section?

Some time ago I wrote a simple parser in postscript for *.ioc files. My collection of STM32 boards is quite eclectic, So I have a number of different files. To truly get the full picture that CubeMX presents, the static XML files are also useful. Fortunately STM came up with a python script that wor...

Re: Hosting currently running slow

I have noticed a bit of sluggishness in the loading of some sites. As I have a cousin on the Richmond/Huston boarder I was following the local Tx live streams on you tube. Leaving them on all day. It could also be that the ISP is load balancing (ie: throttling) users who use a lot of bandwidth. They...

Re: Insufficient user base to support OSX ??

I have a number of open issues on github related to OSX on LibMaple and the bootloader, but we do not seem to have anyone on the forum or github who has the skillset / time / interest to support OSX (aka MacOS) So, I'm beginning to wonder if I should remove support for OSX from Libmaple. - This is ...
