Topic: How to use an LCM-553-60601 display with an Arduino? (Read 58 times) previous topic - next topic


I got my hands on this really cool display. It's old. It was salvaged from some 80s test equipment. It's an LCM-553-60601. I wan't to talk to it with an ATmega328, but I haven't been able to find much on it.

This guy over here says he got it to work with the T6963 library, but I don't see how to hook it up.

I found the data sheet with the pinouts:

1 Data In
2 Data In
3 DF 
4 Load
5 CP Clock
6 Data In
7 +5V
9 TrCol
10 TrBasis

I emailed the author of that library, but he hasn't gotten back to me.

Does anyone know how to hook this up to an Arduino with either the GLCD or T6963 libraries?


There is no T6963C-controller on that board. it exists with that fitted.

As it is now, it has no controller or memory.

Controlling it will be /very/ hard. I would recommend getting a more "intelligent" display to tinker with. This one needs to be refreshed constantly, and the Arduino wouldn't get much time to do anything else that refreshing the display. It would take A LOT of the RAM on the Arduino, too.
