Re: Proper way of changing baud rate on USB GLK?

Hi Tamas, After you change the Baud Rate to the display be sure to change the baud rate to the com port being used to match. You can find the tested Baud Rates in the manuals for your displays.

Re: Full bitmap display on USB GLK

Hi Tamas, The 3 to 4 FPS is with running an animation. You may get a little benefit from raising the Baud Rate but not much. The reason is the data goes to memory then writes to the display. If you previously loaded the images then it would be a lot faster than drawing directly. A suggestion could b...

Re: Full bitmap display on USB GLK

Hi Tamas, Unfortunately there is no faster way to Draw Directly to the display. Drawing a line could improve the speed slightly. The fastest way to draw a image would be to display a previously loaded image. If you were to run an animation you can get about 3 to 4 FPS. I'd suggest you create an anim...

Re: Proper way of changing baud rate on USB GLK?

Hi Fiery, By default your GLK will be set to 19200. To change the baud rate to 115k you will first need to send the "Change Baud Rate" Command to 115k while communicating to the display at 19200. From that point you will need to communicate to your display at 115k. With that being said this should a...

Hi mbjorge,

Try the following:

Re: Can't Display Text

Hi, What is your byte #65? Assuming that it is not 0xFE. The Display has a watch dog timer set to 2.1 seconds in between transmissions. When the timeout is reached the display sends a 0xFE 0xD4. When you receive the 0xFE I believe your upload is timing out. Please check your values for the size and ...

Re: Can't Display Text

Hi, You are following the proper procedure. However the manual does have an error in it. The Confirmation byte you are sending back to the display before you send the Width of your font is not needed. for example: User: 0xFE 0x24 refID LSB MSB Display: Confirmation Byte (This byte is to confirm the ...

Re: Can't Display Text

Hi,

When you send the data are you waiting for each byte to be echoed by the display?

After each byte you send within the data the display will echo and will wait for a confirmation byte until the file is done uploading.

Thank you

Re: Can't Display Text

Hi,

What is the PCB Revision of your GLK19264-7T-1U?

The reason I ask is the upload protocol for fonts changed for Rev3.0.

Thank you

Re: Draw Bitmap Directly Command / Protocol

Hi mbjorge, If you are uploading a bitmap then you should refer to the Upload Protocol. But if you are drawing directly like in you example then you do not need a confirmation byte. The data of the bitmap consists of the Header which is the width and height of the bitmap. Your comand should look lik...
