SSD1306 VHDL FPGA Implementation

I’ve been reading up as much VHDL as possible these last few days as I’ve recently found out that the majority of my summer is going to consist of writing it! After seeing loads of implementations for HD44780 16×2 character based LCDs, I couldn’t find any examples for the easy to get LCDs (by easy, […]

Eon V Smartwatch!

Well after months of waiting and designing, I’ve finally managed to build the Eon V smartwatch! Why its version 5, I’m not to sure other than other few that actually worked though five sounds good so I’m going to keep it. I came across a fair few problems with the implementation of this watch, predominantly […]

STM32F0 + ILI9163 LCD!

Well after popular demand (lol two people…)! I’ve revisited some EXTREMELY old code and got it working for my ILI9163 LCD, its not pretty, its code I’ve not used in a LONG time and probably won’t use for a long while more but as far as I know, the driver is pretty sound. Its uncommented […]

4×4 Font and 100w LED updates!

4×4 Font Well! With the advent of multiple new LCDs to test out, I decided to challenge myself to designing a 4×4 font, a pretty grim task if I’m honest. A 4×4 font with good byte packing could store the whole font set from character 32 to character 127 in 190 bytes. Note that for […]

New oscilloscope and new LCDs and LED updates!

Wahooooo! Exams are over, term starts next week and I’m free other than a few nights out with me chums over the next few days. In the meantime, today brought the arrival of my first ever DSO (Hantek DSO5072P) and a new LCD (the other LCD came a couple of days back but that comes […]
