100 projects will be posted in 100 days in the element 14 website.
These projects are built for PSoC 4 Pioneer Kit with appropriate shields. Please check out these projects.
The Sparkfun website has the details regarding the Color LCD shield https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9363. I think this will be sufficient to kickstart using the shield/ the color LCD with the PSoC \.
The library given in the Sparkfun site uses bit banging. We can easily port the library to make it compatible with PSoC or we can also use SPIM to communicate with LCD driver.
My question wasn't about how to connect a Nokia6100 LCD display to the PSoC - I know there are many tutorials with code out there to allow me to build myself a library for that. I was asking specifically on more explanations how the new component works, so new users to the PSoC can understand and learn from this.
This is a gripe I have with all these projects. As nice (and helpful) it is to see what can be done with the PSoC4, they cannot really serve as good starting points for learning. Most part of the explantions is about how to install the project in Creator (which is the same every day), and only a few sentences are about how it actually works (and what are the secret ingredients in it...).
One commenter points out the 100 days projects might be useful for more detail. Cypress has some of the best explanatory AP notes I have ever seen with in detail descriptions of how things work. I will maybe understand the subtleties of the suggestions more later which suggest the graphics lcd would be a good one for more detail up front. But I have more than enough to absorb with the 100 days approach right now. Its a great educational tool/opportunity to learn. Although not listed on the 100 days site the ap notes for the other psocs are available as well to supplement the 100 days even though not the exact same psoc they help in understanding the process. I was enjoying last night for example reading through their ir thermometer ap notes and dual sampling and filtering in detail on how they work and interface for thermistor measurements for example that I plan to use on a design project for the Pioneer board. Cypress is generous with their code and professional tools and ap notes. The 100 days projects are noteable because they do start from scratch. Plug this, push this tab with pictures. What I need to get started. 4 other boards of different types from other vendors I have are not useful and sit unplugged on my shelf. I have now bought 4 Pioneer boards now, keep one plugged in to my PC, and given one to my son a design engineer, and ordered lcd shields and other parts for both of us to follow the 100 days. 1 is for a high school student educational project. One foreign engineer doing preproduction design is following with me. The forum might be a good plae to list a few links from a specific 100 day project to the existing ap note library. Like how to drive a 7 segment led is well described in detail in the induction cooker ap note with code example. A link pointing out this additional educational resource might help a few.
Thanks for sharing your view from a "PSoC beginners" perspective. I admit to have seen this more from the perepctive of someone proficient with the other PSoCs.
Yes, Cypress produces really good documentation, and their AppNotes are always helpful and provide many insights. In the end I was hoping for these 100 projects to provide a similar level of detail...
