Picaxe driver for tft graphics displays /3

by geoff07 on 02-12-2014 at 17:29

This shows the 5 x 8 font, available in six sizes, with each font pixel being 1x1, 2x2, 4x4, 8x8, 16x16, or 32x32 display pixels. Intermediate sizes could perhaps be added later. The larger sizes aren't that useful on this screen resolution but might be in future on higher-res screens. The font is based on a typical led font, processed by The Font Factory to make a column-major file, and is loaded into the scratchpad by a slot0 program for use by the main driver

Picaxe driver for tft graphics displays /2

This is the display showing a rudimentary graph ..and acting as a voltmeter/ammeter display
Still to come: source code for the driver and the host, a schematic for the driver, and the command set explanation.

Picaxe driver for tft graphics displays

I have just completed and am currently refining a driver program for the little 320 x 240 tft graphics displays available for a few pounds. I will be posting pictures, code and user instructions on this blog as and when I am satisfied with them. The pictures are test displays from the development period, and I shall add several more examples in the next few days.

Edit: in fact I can't add more files to this entry as the limit is two files, so they will have to be part of additional

Generic real-time Picaxe system!

by geoff07 on 02-12-2011 at 16:20
Quite a claim, I agree. But I think realistic for some applications at least. In recent times I have developed a number of Picaxe-based systems to automate things in my house, with a life-expectancy in use of at least several years. During this work I have created a simple code structure using Finite-State Machine principles that I have been able to reuse for a number of projects. This has proven helpful for very rapid and reliable development so I thought I would share it. This article explains

Good Picaxe programming practices

by geoff07 on 17-10-2011 at 23:26
I thought it might be helpful to beginners at least to have a blog that covered good programming practices. Some might simply be helpful habits that save a bit of time. Others might be approaches that potentially make the code easier to maintain. Inevitably one person's practice could be another person's bad habit. It all depends on what the code is for and whether it has any chance of a long life.

Many users of Picaxes will not have had any software training. Electronics has been
