ST7565 LCDs: Graphical LCDs! (Instructable version)

Pt 1061

This mini-tutorial will go through the process of setting up a ST7565 LCD. These LCDs are graphical which means they can display pixels, not just text. This type of LCD in particular has 128×64 pixels, which appear dark gray on a green-blue background. They have a backlight but can also be used without the light on for daytime visibility (Instructable docs are up!)…

  1. Hey guy, when will you sell a very basic txt reader with one of these screens? i guess that 320×240 or 640×480 monocrome LCD display will work. Any ideas about this? i think that a PIC 18F series will be enoght to control it (read SD card, translate TXT file into the screen). How much would it cost?
