T6963C LCD Graphics Controller Chip

Hi!

Did anyone already write a python module to drive such controller?

Thanks,
Frédéric

I don't have a Python library, but there are several C/C++ libraries for the AVR/Arduino, e.g. this one:

or this one:

https://code.google.com/p/arduino-t6963c/

Shouldn't be too difficult to adapt them to MicroPython and the PyBoard/stmhal. T6963c-based displays need many data and control lines, though, so it might be better to use some sort of I/O expander

Yes, I know these projects; I'm working on the Arduino library, to clean it up. Then I will start to port it to micropython.

The idea is to dedicate a pyboard as a LCD interface, to build some sort of VT100 terminal.
