    Hi,
    Does anyone know where I can find a tutorial on how to program one of those
    dot matrix lcd displays? I'm not talking about those 2 or 4 line displays
    where write in the letters, I'm refering to those 128x64 displays or
    similar.
    Thanks
     
  2. Which brand and model?, they vary.
    The datasheet is the best place to start.

    If you want to do it the easy way, try these:

    Are you are interfacing with a microcontroller? If so, depending on the LCD,
    and the micro someone may have done the hard work for you already and
    written a neat routine for it. Post a little more info.

    Regards

    I don't know about other micros but for the Epson SED1520 LCD controller and
    AVR there are routines already written, as revealed by a quick search of the
    Bascom AVR forum and the AVR freaks forum.

    Some of these links deal with interfacing pcs to graphic lcds.

    There are people who charge for driver librarys
    http://www.ramtex.dk/products/lcdd1520.htm

    There's LCDstudio at
    http://www.lcdstudio.com/site20/home.php

    Also try the software at Matrix Orbital, but it's primarily geared to their products,

    Crystalfonz might have something as well.

    Someone has created some free functions for the KS0108 devices at
    http://pagesperso-orange.fr/rs-rey/electronic_ressources/Ressources/8051/GraphicLCD/GraphicLCD.htm
    but you might be able to convert them for use with the SED1520.
