Hammer LCD 8bit Color STN
NOTE: This screen is an 8-bit STN screen, however in order to use it on the S3C2410A Hammer 12-bit STN must be used. The last 4 bits are simply masked off. If you have intentions of using this screen for frameworks such as Qt4 or others please first verify that they have 12-bit color support.
|Pin Number||Hammer||Note||LCD||Pin Number|
|17||VFRAME||LCD Vertical sync||FRM||20|
|18||VLINE||LCD Horizontal sync||LOAD||14|
|19||VCLK||LCD pixel clock||CP||12|
|21||LCD_VD0||LCD data bit 0||Data0||9|
|22||LCD_VD1||LCD data bit 1||Data1||8|
|23||LCD_VD2||LCD data bit 2||Data2||7|
|24||LCD_VD3||LCD data bit 3||Data3||6|
|25||LCD_VD4||LCD data bit 4||Data4||4|
|26||LCD_VD5||LCD data bit 5||Data5||3|
|27||LCD_VD6||LCD data bit 6||Data6||2|
|28||LCD_VD7||LCD data bit 7||Data7||1|
|Contrast +1.95V (+-0.8V)||VCON||18|
NOTE: VCON should be variable control to adjust contrast and the VDD should have separate power control, i.e. via a gpio
NOTE: This display also requires a backlight inverter (see datasheet for requirements)
Linux Kernel 184.108.40.206 Build Notes
In order to get this screen to work framebuffer support has to be built into your kernel.
cd hammer/source/linux-220.127.116.11 export ARCH=arm export CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-uclibc- make menuconfig
Device Drivers -> Graphics Support -> Support for frame buffer devices Inside this sub menu add: [*] Enable Video Mode Handling Helpers <*> S3C2410 LCD framebuffer support
Under Device Drivers -> Graphics Support -> Console display driver support ADD Framebuffer Console Support
NOTE: It is also a good idea to go ahead and add the boot logo.
The next step is to add the display settings to your mach-tct_hammer.c file in ./arch/arm/s3c2410 If you have questions about this file please see the linux documentation ( I will try to make a patch for this at a later date)
