I am currently working on a new VFD driver version for LCDHype. I renamed the whole project and done some clean ups to get some other display working. Fortunately I got some new Samsung VFD displays for small money (if you have some VFDs that is not supported by the driver, contact me!) and with these displays I finished the ANSI Escape sequence protocol of the these VFDs. I fixed the UDF (user definable font) support and added support for the triangles below the last row of some displays. I am currently looking forward to adapt some changes in LCDHype to offer a better way to select the used VFD. The VFD selection in the advanced options dialog of my driver should deliver data required by LCDHype (count of columns and rows, Custom Character count, etc) to the host application. Hopefully this selection can be done in LCDHype with a list of devices enumerated by LCDHype from my driver. This should reduce the misconfiguration between my driver and LCDHype enormously. But this is not finished – not even tested – so wait what’s coming in future.
After some small excursus to the world of Atmel microcontrollers I got some new informations I wanted to publish here. First of all I got a new graphic display named EW50415FLY and gathered the pin assignment for it. And the second news is about my driver for the Mitsubishi M50530 controller. I got a request about it stating it is not working properly. So I took the driver and checked it again (even with the LA) and speed it up. Most of the delays can be removed as the driver is working perfectly without them. So this update is a good base to publish it here. I created a new static page under the Projekte to build a new platform for displays pin assignment and/or driver. Take a look at it to get more information.
