The uLCD-144(GFX) is a compact and cost effective stand-alone display module using the latest state of the art LCD (TFT) technology with an embedded GOLDELOX-GFX2 graphics processor. Powerful graphics, text, image, animation and countless more features are built inside the GOLDELOX-GFX2 chip.
The module is designed to work out of the box and you are now ready to write your code in 4DGL (a high level 4D Graphics Language) using the 4DGL-Workshop3 IDE (editor, compiler, linker and downloader). This will save weeks even months of development time on your next embedded graphics project.
4DGL is a graphics oriented language allowing the developer to write applications in a high level language, syntax similar to popular languages such as BASIC, C and Pascal. The module offers modest but comprehensive I/O features that can interface to serial, analogue, digital, buttons, joystick, sound generation and Dallas 1-wire devices. In short, the uLCD-144(GFX) offers one of the most flexible embedded graphics solutions available.
To interface the LCD to your PC/Laptop you can use an FTDI adapter, but please keep in mind that unfortunately you can't plug the adapter directly onto the LCD headers as the pinout is different. Just attach DTR to RESET, TX to RX, RX to TX, V to Vin, & GND to GND.
A change in firmware to SGC mode will allow the LCD to be hooked up to a microcontroller.
