Hi community, 

 

Has anyone have experience in programming the LCD without the aid of Linux? Any type of guidance would help. I have tried using SPI interface to write data to display on the LCD but to with no success.  

Simple LCD baremetal code would also be greatly helpful.  

 

Thanks

The board I am using does not have a New Haven LCD. This is the board I am using : http://parts.arrow.com/item/detail/arrow-development-tools/sockit#emqe. It uses GPIO and SPI to write to the LCD.

The baremetal example provided only works with a NHD-0216K3Z-NSW-BBW-V3 LCD screen (New Haven). The board I am using is : http://parts.arrow.com/item/detail/arrow-development-tools/sockit#emqe and I cannot find any baremetal examples for it.
