 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi guys!

I'm new to this forum and quite new to Arduino in general! smiley-roll-blue
I would like to graphically display the operation of a system I have been working on. Basically I would like to see on display what I see on LABView - different elements, connections, gauges... Is that possible, and if it is, what to I need to make if work? So far I have a Arduino UNO and a Sensor Shield (which I probably need to connect the LCD). For the LCD I was thinking of using a 5" TFT LCD (if that is ok?).

Thank you for all replies,
Matevz

If you believe something is right, you won't see what's wrong (David Straker).

Hi

Be aware of the limited ROM/RAM size. Full color pictures for TFT will require a lot of FlashROM memory.

I think some shields with the 4D Systems Displays do have an integrated SD Card. See also here for the lib: http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,60802.0.html

Another lib for TFT displays (from other suppliers) is discussed here: http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,144189.0.html.

Some users prefer to use monochrom graphics LCDs and OLEDs. The amount of data, which needs to be transfered, is much less and also pictures can be monochrome. The two of the libs are:

http://code.google.com/p/glcd-arduino/ for KS0108 displays.
http://code.google.com/p/u8glib/ for most other types of monochrome graphics LCDs and OLEDs.

You can also have a look at Frank's E-Bike controller for some inspiration, done with a DOGXL160 display and u8glib: http://code.google.com/p/u8glib/wiki/gallery

Could I connect this to my Arduino? What would I need?

No I don't think so, that is an NTSC/PAL composite monitor.
This should have been your first clue..

The Arduino (I don''t know about a Due) doesn't generate NTSC or PAL video.
