In this tutorial we will look at interfacing KS display controller based JHDE display. There are many displays out there based on KS or. A x64 graphical LCD based on the KS controller chip is required. GLCDexample * * Basic test code for the Arduino KS GLCD library. * This code. ERMSYG-2 is “glcd x64 display graphic lcd module,ks+ks controller,stn lcd,yellow green led backlight,wide operating temperature.

The remainder of this page is about GLCDv3 for those that would like to continue to use it.

This looks straight forward for the command pinsbut not so for the data pins My end goal is to run two independent displays simultaneously.

The need is for large, clear fonts that can be read with only a quick glance. Sources for Electronic Parts. Here is a simplified version of the example sketch in the download:. Parts tamper ed with by grinding, engraving, drilling, cutting or applying coatings of any kind. Connect these pins to 5V and ground respectively.

However, all of these files end in “. Therefore, GLCDv3 is no longer recommended for use. Most glcds will reset on power up so the glcd reset line can be left unconnected. Have you considered using two boards, each driving a Display and connect them up using serial or I2C? GLCDv3 ka0108 has been idle since ca.

Graphic LCD (KS) library now available – Page 21

I will wait patiently and anxiously for your new library. It generates negative voltage required for the display. Find the section in the file that begins:. However RGC says he wants “to run two independent displays simultaneously” If that is indeed what he wants to do then there is some non-trivial software work needed to manage the state of the two displays.

The test sketch included in the download demonstrates many of the capabilities of the library and if you start with this and use the default Arduino pin assignments, it is a good way to make sure that everything is working before you customize your configuration.


The pin configuration is used to assign pins. Backorder notices are listed on your shopping cart. The plan is to have two displays flanking a central tachometer, showing a total of four variables. We have used a 1K resistor to limit the current to the backlit LED. There is a serial interface that is not part of the release but could be developed to remotely drive one or more displays if someone was inclined to pick this up.

Please refer the KS datasheet for finding out the maximum, minimum and typical values of the timing parameters. Perhaps using another board is a good alternative. The default pin assignments for the glcd data pins are assigned to take advantage of this optimization.

I have been using a diy engine management system MegaSquirt or MS for a few years. Supports fixed width fonts that provides up to 8 x 21 character display with the supplied system font.

KS0108 Based Graphic LCD Interfacing with PIC18F4550 – Part 2

I have a 10k pot for contrast adjustment and a ohm resistor hooked up for the backlight as per the datasheet. If you download the code, you’ll see we have implemented all the characters with 5×8 pixel font. Only registered users can write reviews. However, the only thing I can get to come up on the screen when running the test sketch is a garbled mess.

We will, at our option, either a repair the product using new or refurbished parts, or b replace the product with a new or refurbished product. LCD, type A pinout. A Processing utility is provided in the download to convert a monochrome bitmap file to a header file that stores the image in flash for use by the DrwBitmap method.

We will, at our option, either a repair the product using new or refurbished parts, or b replace the product with a new or refurbished product. For more info pleae look at this Forum Post. Character LCD only displays the alphanumerical characters. In the next part of the tutorial, we are going to use a generic library which has all the features including graphics, fonts etc.


Stock levels are based on item’s sales history.

We fill most small quantity orders immediately. We will be leaving first two columns, 8th column and last row of the page for spacing. So lets get started. I searched for a while and didn’t find a character LCD with big mm font size.

In order to do this, one leg of the pot needs to hook to ground, one leg needs to hook to the Vee negative voltage output pin and then the wiper middle pin of the pot will have the variable voltage output that can be fed to the Vo contrast control input pin. Company Info About BuyDisplay. The reason for GLCD rather than text is the need for huge font – I am displaying only two variables on a x64 display.

EastRising gives the promise to every customer ks0180 every product we sell on this web store. The interface has been made more Arduino friendly and some convenience functions added. Ran Talbott Edison Member Posts: It can be used in any embedded systems,industrial device,security,medical and hand-held equipment.

For the latest and most complete documentation refer to the html documentation included gralhic the library download. Related Hardware and Initiatives. See the documentation in the download for more information. Most GLCD panels require an external preset pot to set the LCD working voltage contrast and a fixed resistor to limit the current in the backlight.

The nice thing about the ks chip is the all the lines are tri-stated and ignored when a chip isn’t selected. However not the pin number
