CFAG240128L-STI-TZ What is provided?

Hello all,

I'm considering purchasing a CFAG240128L-STI-TZ with the built in Toshiba T6963C compatible controller and need to know what comes in the package. Does it come with pin outs to make connection to microcontrollers possible?

How about sample code? Anybody have sample code that works with ARM processors such as the LPC-2138?

I'd love to buy this part, but I don't really want to reinvent the wheel having to write code from scratch to drive the thing.

There is some sample code in this thread:

If you study the port macros and initialization code, it is not too bad and will get you going.

But, as cosmicvoid says, you can probably find more useful libraries on the web. These searches might be a good start:

or

http://www.google.com/search?q=ARM++LPC-2138+t6963

or

There are also commercial libraries. Not a bad way to go if you have a budget:

Thank you for the replies, very helpful. Does anybody have any information about hooking up the module to a micro-processor? The pin out is useful, but I've only dealt with simple 8 bit parallel interfaces with a few control signals. And this thing as some signal lines that I'm just not sure what to do with...

What I'm looking for is a bit of help with how to hook this thing up... Surely somebody has used this module and can share some knowledge?

Thanks again for the help...
 
Some of the links above show hookup diagrams. I presume you've taken a look at the signal descriptions and timing diagrams in the data sheet.

Ask us about specific details that you don't understand, and I/we can give you the info you need, but, I don't want to go into a long winded explanation until I know what you need to know.

You will need 2 I/O ports, one for the data bus, and another for the control signals.
