Hey Leonardo,

Any luck establishing communication with the VK204-25?

Re: require code for designing on EVE2-70A

Hi Madhusudan.Jadhav, So you are not able to read '7C' from the FT81X during startup? The FT81X does require some time to start up. Could you try implementing a short delay at the beginning of your code to allow the EVE to boot properly? I'd say you start with 1000mS to start with. Once you have con...

Re: Make EVE2-29A look like a green crt display

Haha I hope it comes in a timely manner. I'd like to see a photo of the project once everything is all said and done.

Re: Make EVE2-29A look like a green crt display

Hi Bob, Yeah, I guess my comments in the code were pretty vague eh? It also looks like the resolution values listed in the calculations are wrong as well. I must have been daydreaming of the weekend when I wrote those comments haha. The BITMAP_TRANSFORM registers are described in sections 4.12 to 4....

Re: Help with VK204-25 I2C communication

Hi Leonardo,

What pins are you connected to on the Arduino? Have you tried swapping the I2C RX and TX lines?

Cheers,
Daniel

Re: Help with VK204-25 I2C communication

Hi Leonardo,

My bad. The 'H's were meant to denote that the values were in hex.

Are any jumpers present on the J0-J3 pins? Also, what commands/data are you sending to the display?

Cheers,
Daniel

Re: Help with VK204-25 I2C communication

Hi Leonardo, It's good to see some of our older display models are still kicking around! The baud rate and I2C address on your Rev 1.22 VK204-25 can be configured by populating jumpers on the J0-J3 pins. According to section 2.1.3 in the VK204-25 Rev 1.23 classic manual, it looks like your display i...

Re: Make EVE2-29A look like a green crt display

Hi Bob, You should be able to do that. Just convert all of the wr32 RAM_DL functions to their SendCMD counterparts. See below: // Using raw uncompressed bitmap data, the CoProcessor is not needed for inflation and the data is // stored into RAM_G without the use of the FIFO / CoProcessor. // This fu...

Re: Make EVE2-29A look like a green crt display

Hi Bob, Please see the attached code. It's essentially a modified version of our EVE School code, but it draws your test image on screen. It includes 2 versions of your test screen: a jpg variant and a .raw variant. Their load times are comparable. I used Irfanview to convert your .tif image to a jp...

Re: Make EVE2-29A look like a green crt display

Hi Bob,

I finally have some good news for you! I was able to load the image off of the SD card, scale it to fit the screen, and display it on the EVE2-29A.

I'll have to clean up my code, but I'll make sure to upload it later tonight.

Cheers,
Daniel

Hi Bob,

What kind of speeds were you seeing? Was it relatively fast to update?

Re: Make EVE2-29A look like a green crt display

Hi Bob, I've played around with the image you've provided and I'm still having difficulties displaying it properly on the EVE. I am able to get... something. But it definitely isn't what we want. Would it be possible for you to send me a jpeg version of what you are looking to display? Cheers, Daniel

Re: Make EVE2-29A look like a green crt display

Hi Bob, I've done some testing here, and unfortunately, I wasn't able to display your image successfully in a relatively quick manner. I can display images, but they take a little bit of time to load from the SD card. I'll continue testing, but I should let you know that I'll be out of the office be...

Re: Upgrading ELK204-7T firmware

Hi Foobar, Welcome to the Forums! Yes, you are correct. The ELK204-7T-1U is based on our LK204-7T-1U display. As you have mentioned, there seem to be a few errors in the display's description. I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you. We are working to correct these errors on our websit...

Re: Boot screen with company logo?

No Worries Mascenzi. Also, just a heads up, we have a program called BootLogo that can help you design your logo. In addition, the program allows you to upload your logo along with your custom characters directly to the display from your PC. The program should make it a easier to design your custom ...
