Technical Support Notes

Connecting to the Display
You can connect to the display in several ways:
- 3-Wire SPI (also known as "3-line Serial Interface Protocol", 9-bit data)
Note: ILI9163C Datasheets improperly (not traditional) refer to SPI as a Serial Interface. Please see timing diagram in 6.2.1 called "3-line Serial Interface Protocol"
The DT018ATFT does not support 4-Wire SPI (also known as "4-line Serial Interface Protocol", 8-bit data, which includes a separate D/C signal line). DT018ATFT does not support this since the signal in ILI9163C datasheet called "SPI4" is hard coded to 0. However, a custom version of the FPC can be tooled to expose the proper 4-Wire SPI signals - please contact us for more details.
The provided display driver example code is designed to work with Microchip, however it is generic enough to work with other micro-controllers. The code includes display reset sequence, initialization and example PutPixel() function.
The 3-Wire SPI Demo Sample Code Package includes:
- code to display some test patterns to the screen
- movie of the demo
For any technical questions on this display, please post in the DT018ATFT forum.
