What it is

Library for graphical LCDs for Python on Raspberry Pi. Creates a united interface for supported devices

Supported:

  • ili9486 via SPI
  • ili9325 via GPIO
  • ssd1306 via SPI
  • nju6450 via GPIO

And for touch panels:

  • ad7843 via SPI, uses irq or not
  • ad7846/xpt2046

Bonus

  • HD44780 emulation (works with CharLCD)

On NJU and SSD uses buffer to keep current content as help for page operations.

Wiring is below

Demos are in demos directory

LCD initialization

SSD1306

SPI

from driver.ssd1306.spi import SPI
from driver.ssd1306.ssd1306 import SSD1306
drv = SPI()
o = SSD1306(128, 64, drv)
o.init()

If you want to set your own pins:

drv = SPI()
drv.pins = {
    'RST': 13,
    'DC': 6,
}
o = SSD1306(128, 64, drv)
o.init()

NJU6450

GPIO

from gfxlcd.driver.nju6450.gpio import GPIO
from gfxlcd.driver.nju6450.nju6450 import NJU6450
drv = GPIO()
o = NJU6450(122, 32, drv)
o.init()

Custom wiring:

from gfxlcd.driver.nju6450.gpio import GPIO
from gfxlcd.driver.nju6450.nju6450 import NJU6450
drv = GPIO()
drv.pins = {
    'A0': 17,
    'E1': 22,
    'E2': 21,
    'D0': 23,
    'D1': 24,
    'D2': 25,
    'D3': 12,
    'D4': 16,
    'D5': 20,
    'D6': 26,
    'D7': 19,
    'RST': 5,
}
o = NJU6450(122, 32, drv)
o.init()

ILI9325

GPIO

from gfxlcd.driver.ili9325.gpio import GPIO
from gfxlcd.driver.ili9325.ili9325 import ILI9325
drv = GPIO()
o = ILI9325(240, 320, drv)
o.init()

Custom pins:

from gfxlcd.driver.ili9325.gpio import GPIO
from gfxlcd.driver.ili9325.ili9325 import ILI9325
drv = GPIO()
drv.pins = {
    'RS': 27,
    'W': 17,
    'DB8': 22,
    'DB9': 23,
    'DB10': 24,
    'DB11': 5,
    'DB12': 12,
    'DB13': 16,
    'DB14': 20,
    'DB15': 21,
    'RST': 25,
    'LED': None,
    'CS': None
}
o = ILI9325(240, 320, drv)
o.init()

ILI9486

SPI

from gfxlcd.driver.ili9486.spi import SPI
from gfxlcd.driver.ili9486.ili9486 import ILI9486
drv = SPI()
o = ILI9486(320, 480, drv)
o.rotation = 270
o.init()

Drawing functions

draw_pixel(x, y)

draw_line(from_x, from_y, to_x, to_y)

draw_rect(x1, y1, x2, y2)

draw_circle(x1, y1, radius)

draw_arc(x1, y1, radius, from_angle, to_angle

fill_rect(x1, y1, x2, y2)

draw_image(x, y, PIL.Image)

draw_text(x, y, text)

Colours

lcd.color = (r, g, b)

lcd.background_color = (r, g ,b)

lcd.threshold = 255 - for images a threshold between black and white (on monochrome)

lcd.transparency_color = [110, 57] #110 - color(s) that are skipped during drawing an image

Fonts

Font class implements Font abstract and is a class that has a dictionary with each char:

(..)
[0x3C, 0x66, 0x03, 0x03, 0x73, 0x66, 0x7C, 0x00],   # U+0047 (G)
(..)

There is one font for now, 8x8 and named Font8x8 and is used by default.

Touch panels

AD7843

Constructor:

AD7843(width, height, (int_pin), (callback), (cs_pin))

Can be used with int_pin and cs_pin

def callback(position):
    print('(x,y)', position)

touch = AD7843(240, 320, 26, callback, 17)
touch.init()

or without:

touch = AD7843(240, 320)
touch.init()

while True:
    try:
        time.sleep(0.05)
        ret = touch.get_position()
        if ret:
            print(ret[0], ret[1])

    except KeyboardInterrupt:
        touch.close()

There is no automatic calibration. It must be done manually.

self.correction = {
    'x': 364,
    'y': 430,
    'ratio_x': 14.35,
    'ratio_y': 10.59
}

HD44780 emulation

This driver can work with CharLCD and emulate char LCD

ili_drv = ILIGPIO()
ili_drv.pins['LED'] = 6
ili_drv.pins['CS'] = 18
lcd = ILI9325(240, 320, ili_drv)
lcd.auto_flush = False
lcd.rotation = 0

drv = HD44780(lcd)
lcd = CharLCD(drv.width, drv.height, drv, 0, 0)
lcd.init()

lcd.write('-!Second blarg!')
lcd.write("-second line", 0, 1)
lcd.flush()
