Several customers of my Sharp Memory LCD breakout boards have asked me what microcontroller it is best to use to control a Memory LCD. It’s a good question and one which requires consideration of several different aspects of a microcontroller’s specification. SRAM and Framebuffers: The first question is: Do you want to create and hold […]
Here’s a short video I’ve made so that you can compare the two different types of Sharp Memory LCD side-by-side. On the left is the 128 x 128 pixel HR-TFT type and on the right is the 96 x 96 pixel PNLC version. To quote from Sharp’s own literature: Sharp’s Polymer Networked Liquid Crystal (PNLC)-type […]
I’ve been busy producing my new Memory LCD Breakout Boards this week and in the course of production, I have arrived at the point where the boards I’ve made all need testing before I seal them up in anti-static bags with the extra, loose components that accompany them – of which their 0.1″ header strip […]
Here’s a video of my demo sequence running on the large Memory LCD I’m selling. Next, I’ll be recording a side-by-side demo of the two small Memory LCDs next for the purpose of comparing the two different screen types – the PNLC of the 96 x 96 pixel display versus the HR-TFT of the 128 […]
The Memory LCD breakout boards are now for sale – see the shop page for details. I’ll be making a demo video for the 400 x 240 HR-TFT Memory LCD next.
Photos of the initial production of my Memory LCD Breakout Boards: There are five each of the 96 x 96 pixel displays, 128 x 128 pixel displays and 400 x 240 pixel displays. I’ll be testing them all this evening.
This is the smaller of my two Memory LCD breakout boards and is designed for two different models of if Memory LCD: 96 x 96 pixel, 1.35″ Memory LCD 128 x 128 pixel, 1.28″ Memory LCD What Are Memory LCDs? Memory LCDs are the type of black & white, ultra low-power, ultra high-contrast displays used […]
