Memory mapped LCD Controller (KS0073) :: Overview
Other project properties
Simple memory mapped, character type dot matrix LCD controller for interfacing the Samsung's KS0073.
The controller supports the 40SEG extension driver providing a 4-line x 20 character display. It uses a memory mapped 4x20x8 bit matrix, transformed in real-time to the display.
It completely takes the responsibility for sending the appropriate sequences of commands to the KS0073. The higher layer needs only to take care of the content of the matrix. This makes its implementation as a microcontroller peripheral unit very comfortable.
