Lcd Fundamentals

HI,

I AM NEW TO THE FIELD OF LCD. PLEASE HELP ME WITH MY QUERIES

1. I WISH TO KNOW FUNDAMENTAL KNOWLEDGE OF INTERFACING AND WORKING OF LCD MODULES.

2. SOME FUNDAMENTAL KNOWLEDGE OF LCD DRIVERS.

3. I HAVE HEARD THAT LCD MODULES ARE AVAILABLE WITH AND WITHOUT DRIVERS. CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE WORKING OF THE TWO?

PLEASE HELP.

CHEERS

The proper answers to these questions would be quite lengthy. I don't know of any books to recommend, but perhaps you could learn a great deal from the data sheets. Go to the Crystalfontz main site, and choose one or two displays, perhaps one character-mode, and one graphic, and download the data sheets. They contain most of this information, and also download the data sheets for the driver chips, as these usually have a section on principles of operation.

1. see above

2. hardware drivers or software drivers?

3. the two work the same, except for the latter type you provide your own driver hardware. I recommend displays with drivers, as the w/o driver type are a pain to use.
