Problems Trying to connect to the new GTWV050C3A00PA 5" LCD module
Oct 28, 2019

Brad,

Thank you for the information.

Our GT-CP VCOM driver is not compatible with Windows 10. GT-CP modules natively support WinUSB, so you need to let Windows install this automatically.

To uninstall the VCOM driver and install WinUSB, follow this procedure:

1. Please uninstall "USB VIrtual COM port (COM4)" and "Noritake Itron Display" from your PC. Make sure to check the "Uninstall the driver software for this device" checkbox.

2. Unplug the GT-CP module from your PC.

3. Plug the GT-CP module back into your PC. The WinUSB driver should automatically install.

4. In your Device Manager, you should see the GT-CP module's product number (GTWV050C3A00PA) listed under "Universal Serial Bus devices".

If your driver installation is still not sucessful, please let us know, post a screenshot of your device manager, and we can troubleshoot this issue with you.

Best Regards,

Hello Brad,

Can you explain exactly how you connected your GT-CP module to your PC as well as the subsequent steps/events before you arrived at this properties window?

Also, could you post a screenshot of your device manager? (or at least the section where your GT-CP module shows up?)

Command-based Display Module: Bitmap background colors
Jun 21, 2019

Hello Taichi,

My recommendation would be to change the edges of your button to be a slightly less-intense color compared to the button's main color.

For example, if you have a grey button, make the edges of the button very slightly darker to make it feel like it is fading away.

Additionally, make sure the edges of your button do not have any transparent pixels. The GT-CP module cannot render transparent pixels and makes those pixels white.

Best Regards,

quicker idev boot-up
Jun 21, 2019

Hello Taichi,

Thank you for your question.

There are a couple ways you can reduce the start-up time of your iDevTFT program.

1. Convert the images in your project to .tri format. This format loads very quickly on iDevOS. This can be done in iDevTFT by going to "USB Transfer > Create TRI image files". This will create .tri copies of your project's image files. Once the conversion is complete, make sure to change each image extension within your iDevTFT program so it is looking at the correct file.

2. If you are using multiple .mnu files to utilize different sub-programs, don't load all of the .mnu files at the start of you main program. Load the .mnu file only when you are about to use it. This will reduce the time it takes to get to your main page. This method will increase the time it takes to get to a sub-program by a few seconds, but once a .mnu file is loaded once, it stays loaded until the main program exits or the module is reset.

In summary, to reduce the start-up time of your iDevTFT program, you can:

- Convert images to .tri format.

- Don't front load your .mnu sub-programs. Only load them when needed.

I hope this information helps! If you have any more questions, don't hesistate to ask!

CU165ECPB/D
Jul 04, 2019

David,

We are happy to help.

Please see the following related command information:

1. ASCII Commands are available for only Backspace (0x08), Horizontal-Tab (0x09), Line-Feed (0x0A), and Carriage-Return (0x0D).

2. Noritake Commands are available for changing thte device control mode and listed as follows;

DC1 (0x11): Character Overwrite Mode (Default Setting)

DC2 (0x12): Vertical (Text) Scroll Mode

DC3 (0x13): Horizontal (Text) Scroll Mode

These modes change the way the module behaves when text reaches the end of the display. Overwrite mode will move the cursor back to its home position and overwrite the displayed chracters. Horizontal mode will keep the cursor at the end of the display, shift the displayed characters to the left and write the new character. 

Note: Since the display has a single line, The DC2 mode does not move the displayed-text up when the cursor reaches to the right-end position.

3. Cursor Position Set Commands are simple correspond the cursor location by sending 1 byte command as follows.

M0 (0x80): The cursor moves to the leftmost position

M1 (0x81): The cursor moves to the second column from the leftmost position

M2 (0x82): The cursor moves to the third column from the leftmost position

M4 (0x83): The cursor moves to the forth column from the leftmost position

continued…

M15 (0x8F): The cursor moves to the sixteenth column (the rightmost position)

Also, please see the associated font table:

David,

For your reference, please see the following pinout image.

This figure is looking at the module's right side, so GND is pin 1 and BUSY is pin 12.
Since this module was discontinued more than 15 years ago, we cannot guarantee proper module operation. 
I hope this information helps you in your development.

Macro stop on serial input
Jul 02, 2019

Hello Taichi,

You can stop a program macro when serial data is received with the following program macro code:

‘/////////////////////////////////////////////

‘Global Variable

RecBff = &h00   ‘ Receiving Buffer

Sub Start()

                Cursor 0,0

                Cls          ‘Clear Screen

lp:

                ‘Receive Serial Data

                If RecCount <> 0 Then

                                GoTo Coda

                End If

                GoTo lp

Coda:

End Sub

‘//////////////////////////////////////////////

Essentially, this code checks the value of the receiving buffer (RecCount). If the receiving buffer is not zero (RecCount <> 0), then go to the end of the program macro.

Yes, a predefined data sequence can be specified to stop a program macro to stop.

The following code illustrates a program macro exiting upon receiving 0x40.

‘/////////////////////////////////////////////

‘Global Variable

RecBff = &h00   ‘ Receiving Buffer

Sub Start()

                Cursor 0,0

                Cls          ‘Clear Screen

lp:

                ‘Receive Serial Data

                If RecCount <> 0 Then

                                RecBff = Com ‘Read one byte of receiving buffer

                                If RecBff = &h40 Then

                                                GoTo Coda

                                End If

                                Print RecBff

                End If

                GoTo lp

Coda:

End Sub

Replacement for GU256x64-312
Feb 06, 2018
Hello Scoobis,

Unfortunately, we do not have a replacement module for the GU256X64-312 that is similar/same size and command compatible.

We do have the GU256X64F-9372 module that is command compatible but is a bit larger (222.0mm x 78.0mm).

Additionally, the GU256X64D-3900B is similar in size (159.0mm x 50.0mm) but is not command compatible.

We hope this information is helpful.
If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to ask.

GU-3900 series timing in DMA mode
Feb 18, 2017
Ed,

It's good to hear that your problem was fixed!

Concerning RDY signal monitoring, RDY needs to be monitored when sending commands but it does not need to be monitored when sending image data bytes. In the datasheet, it specifies in section 8.1.1 that the diagram is "Not applicable for bit image data transfer in DMA mode" and this diagram includes RDY monitoring. In 8.1.2, it states that the diagram is "Applicable for bit image data transfer in DMA mode" and the diagram does not include RDY monitoring. 
For example, when using the "bit image write" command, the RDY signal must be monitored for the command header bytes but not for the subsequent image data bytes.

We apologize that this is quite confusing but we hope that this explanation clears it up a bit.

GU-3900 series timing in DMA mode
Feb 18, 2017
elafargue,

Thank you for your post.

Concerning the display errors and timing, are you polling the RDY signal? It is present in the parallel interface timing diagram on the module's datasheet and essentially changes when the module's receive buffer nears capacity. Polling this signal stabilizes communication if you only send data when the signal indicates that the module is ready.

Additionally, the maximum start-up time (at power-on or module initialization) for these modules is 500ms so you could also try adding a delay of 500ms before you start sending bytes to the module to ensure that you aren't sending data during module start-up. 

If you are still having issues after these suggestions, please post your exact module number so we can assist you further.

Thank you,

Unfortunately, this board was not fully developed and was only used for a short time for demo purposes only. Please private message us your email address and we can send you the schematic file for this board. It uses a AT42QT2120 chip from ATMEL so the specification for this board will come from this chip's datasheet.
