    I enjoy my hobby/study of microelectronics, and am trying to move a step up,
    to include displays in my designs, but I dont know anything about it...

    I bought an LCD dot-matrix display (128x64). It is made by a company called
    Ampire, the product code is AG12864A.

    I was hoping one (or some) of you could help/teach me how to use it. Do I
    need controllers or drivers for it. If so, do I use assembler to program it?
    What other components or connections or programs do I need for it?

    I appreciate any assistance you can offer. Thanks.
  2. I would not be able to help you with the software part, but the very
    first thing to get are the data sheets for the display. From that you
    will have to do the proper research to find out the hardware and
    interface parts that are required to drive it.

    The next part would be to research out how to address the hardware
    that will drive the display.

    There are some displays that have built in hardware to drive them, and
    what they require is the proper microcontroler to drive the unit.

    Just start by getting the data sheets for it, and do the research from
    that point on.

    Download the datasheet;it has all the info you'll need.

    You might want to start with a simpler "character" display rather than a
    "graphic" display. Generally simpler to use. Several places on the
    internet have surpless/odd-lot displays for very low prices. A partial
    list would include and

    Ok, thanks.

    By the way, in the case of a surplus module it is very common not to
    be able to find the datasheet. However you should be able to find the
    datasheet for the controller IC on the LCD (if it has one).
