This repository contains the source code for the FD628 and similar LED display controllers, Controller datasheet.

The FD628 controller is often used in Android TV boxes with a 7 segment LED display at the front.

Although the FD628 controller has support for a multitude of different display configurations, the current implementation only supports common cathode and common anode displays with 7 segments. The driver can also support FD650, which uses a variation of the I2C communication protocol. In addition it supports HD44780 text based LCD displays, using an I2C backpack.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
