Display CP7 - Is it 24bit or 18bit? Are schematics available?


#1

Hi.

I’m trying to fully understand how the CP7 works, but I could not find the schematics. Is the Display CP7 open source or closed source?

On the source code, I noticed that only six pins on each colour socket are reserved. It is a total of 18bit.Is it full color display (24bit) or 18 bit?

NETMF only supports 16bit which is enough for good graphics

Thanks for the reply!

Is the pinout available? I have a hydra , a panda and two cerb40. I want to try to use it with cerb40.


#4

TFT displays like the CP7 require special hardware to refresh the screen. The Cerb40 does not have the required hardware.

also, the 40 does not have enough memory.


#5

It will work on hydra, just plug it in. Nothing special is needed.


#6

Panda is in the same boat as Cerberus family devices, the memory is way too small to be able to manage bitmaps for screens - plus GHI deliberately took bitmap support out since it would never work.

Look at the OLED display and PicoMax to use graphics on the Cerb/Cerb40
