LCD 128x64 Bricklet
This repository contains the firmware source code and the hardware design files. The documentation generator configs can be found at https://github.com/Tinkerforge/generators
- examples/: Examples for all supported languages
- build/: Compiled files
- src/: Source code of firmware
- Makefile: Makefile to build project
- Contains KiCad project files and additionally schematics as PDF
- Contains datasheets for sensors and complex ICs that are used
The hardware is designed with the open source EDA Suite KiCad (http://www.kicad-pcb.org). Before you are able to open the files, you have to install the Tinkerforge kicad-libraries (https://github.com/Tinkerforge/kicad-libraries). You can either clone them directly in hardware/ or clone them in a separate folder and symlink them into hardware/ (ln -s kicad_path/kicad-libraries project_path/hardware). After that you can open the .pro file in hardware/ with KiCad and from there view and modify the schematics and the PCB layout.
If you want to do your own Brick/Bricklet firmware development we highly recommend that you use our build environment setup script and read the tutorial (https://www.tinkerforge.com/en/doc/Tutorials/Tutorial_Build_Environment/Tutorial.html).
To compile the C code we recommend you to install the newest GNU Arm Embedded Toolchain (https://launchpad.net/gcc-arm-embedded/+download). You also need to install bricklib2 (https://github.com/Tinkerforge/bricklib2).
You can either clone it directly in software/src/ or clone it in a separate folder and symlink it into software/src/ (ln -s bricklib_path/bricklib2 project_path/software/src/). Finally make sure to have CMake installed (http://www.cmake.org/cmake/resources/software.html).
After that you can build the firmware by invoking make in software/. The firmware (.zbin) can then be found in software/build/ and uploaded with brickv (click button "Flashing" on start screen).
