661  Using Arduino / Displays / Re: Font generation for bitmaps on: May 09, 2013, 12:23:42 am
I found the BDF font format very suitable: It is a plain text bitmap font format. Glyphs are stored as hex numbers:

Many tools can edit/export BDF (e.g. or convert from truetype to BDF (e.g. FontForge or

Seems to be a Seiko G1213 LCD. See attachment for the pins...

664  Using Arduino / Displays / Re: Test/demo sketch for 12864 on: May 08, 2013, 03:16:38 pm
the pins are incorrect?
so what do i do to fix it?
Difficult to say without a picture/description of your setup.

I suggest to force PSB to the intended level.
The "send()" procedure looks different than the one i programmed for u8glib:

Will your Makefile work with Serial.print?
If yes, any idea why my Makefile fails with Serial.print?

Thanks a lot for the feedback!

669  Using Arduino / Displays / Re: U8GLIB: sleepOn/Off not working on: April 29, 2013, 12:30:41 pm
These sleep functions are only available for some display types. What is your exact constructor line?

If I put a power transistor between the mega's +5v and Vcc on the display to turn it on and off will that damage the display with SDA and SCL lines still active?

Probably not, but you need to reinit the display. You can use u8g.begin() for this. All other settings are also lost...

670  Using Arduino / Displays / Re: M2TKLIB - A User-Interface-Toolkit for the Arduino Hardware on: April 28, 2013, 01:08:59 pm
Is there a way to reset the display system (software part), without resetting the arduino?

There is the procedure "begin" ( which does a reset of the display for newer versions of U8glib.

671  Using Arduino / Displays / Re: how to show a graph on graphical lcd 240x128 ?? on: April 28, 2013, 02:14:26 am
This could be a T6963 based display, so
U8GLIB_T6963_240X128(d0, d1, d2, d3, d4, d5, d6, d7, cs, a0, wr, rd, reset)
might work.

Remember to apply a variable resistor as described in chapter 4.1 of your user manual and also select the 8x8 font for this display (apply GND to FS1, see chapter 4.3)

Für U8glib ( hatte ich mich entschieden das XBM Format zu unterstützen. Vorteile:
* Standard Bildformat (z.B. Export via Gimp),
* gültiger C-Code (XBM-Datei im Editor öffnen, alles markieren und in die Arduino IDE kopieren),
* sehr einfaches Format.

Der Code zum Auslesen des XBM befindet sich hier:

I have updated your inital Makefile to include USB support (attached). But still the serial communication is not working. I have no idea why...


Edit: The screen terminal emulator (used in the Makefile) can be terminated with Ctrl-a Backslash.
674  Products / Arduino Due / Re: Makefile for the Due on: April 27, 2013, 12:09:10 am

Your Makefile works fine. But the Serial is not activated during compilation state. If you remove the "Serial" commands from your example, then the blinking will work:
enum constants {
void setup() {
  // put your setup code here, to run once:
    // initialize the digital pin as an output.
  pinMode(ledpin, OUTPUT);   
  //Serial.println("Configuration complete");

void loop() {
  // put your main code here, to run repeatedly:
 static bool ledstate=false;
 //Serial.print("led is ");

The PG12864 is a module, it has several parts. The T6963 is just the controller and requires only +5V to work. But the negative voltage is required for the LCD component for the display module (and yes, i think it is passed through the T6963).
Other components include segement driver and RAM. The negative voltage converter is optional and often not included.

A digramm for a module with NV can be seen here:
