Not that I’m not happy with the default mikroC library for the KS0108 graphic displays, as I always I wanted something with the source available. Considering that I’m a beginner with microcontrolers having the source available to hack around is a very valuable learning tool.
The project is based on the source found here:
The source is made pretty universal, still it took some work and modifications to have it working in mikroC. The archive is a ready working project for mikroC.
I tested and developed it on the EasyPIC5 development board with a PIC16F887 microcontroller. You have to have the board configured for the touchscreen panel and GLCD display – i suppose you know how to do that, if not you should consult the EasyPIC5 manual.
The project has everything you need:
- a small demo program that uses text and bitmaps so you can see how the touchscreen, graphics, images and text work
- a font file
- a file to host your bitmap data
- graphic functions
- ks0108 functions
- microcontroller dependent functions.
