CFAG12864B : Fast animations ?


New member
Hi !

I'm developing an embedded system based on 8x51 CPU, interfaced with the display in the subject.

I want to made a little animation, like a rotating fan, but the refresh is not enough.
I don't know if this is a limit of the display or if the CPU is not fast enough (i'm running at 12Mhz).

Will be possible to use animations like the one you see on car audio devices with this display ? Otherwise, does CrystalFontz produce graphic displays which are capable of that animations ?

All the displays we sell are STN, and the typical response time of the fluid in them is around 1/10 of a second. That is probably the limiting factor.

Some animations (like bar graphs) look great, but I can see how others (like a rotating fan) might not look nice.
