Large graphical display for FEZes


#1

We have added a new large 3.6" display that can easily connect to FEZ Mini or FEZ Domino. The update rate is very decent and we include example code for drawing shapes and text in 2 font sizes.

You can still add this display to FEZ Cobra but since Cobra supports native graphics on color TFT display then you should have a good reason on using the one color SPI display instead of the color TFT display.

You are no longer limited to simple 2x16 charactersā€¦go ahead and be artistic :smiley:

the brochure is marked as display driver on the link

Yes I just noticed :slight_smile: we will take care of it


#4

hmm what else to order. 1 of those and 2 xbee adapters.


#5

I think you will be really impressed with the size and quality of the display


#6

Iā€™ve seen two displays come on lately. The Olimex (Nokia 128x128 with colour) and now the mono 128x64 3.6" one, which looks nice and not a bad price point at $30. Good one GHI !!

The 3.6" one-color display is a much better option than nokia color display


#8

Yes, because the nokia dispaly uses 9 bit data ???
