Hi all, I don't know where to begin to interface the iMX233 MAXI with an SSD1963 LCD controller, the idea is to connect it with the LCD0-7 GPIO's and some control GPIO's. inicializate the display and then read the fb0.
The thing is that i cant acces those GPIO's and i want to no how do i acces them or if there is yet an intelligent LCD driver..
Thanks and excuse my english

I have successfully connected SSD1963 to iMX233. Just configure iMX233 LCD controller in 8080 mode.

Can You explain your solution in detail ? I have a http://www.winstar.com.tw/UserFiles/File/WF35DTIBCDE.pdf LCD display based on SSD1963, but i completely don't know how to connect it and how to prepare Linux to work with.

Thanks a lot.

Yes sure, I will draw connection scheme.  And can give you draft of linux driver.

Heya, im trying to do the exact same thing.
I would appreciate your input on this Alex-y :D

Still don't have all the hardware at place, but researching!

If anyone has more info please post your updates :D
Thanks!

Bought today this:
7"TFT LCD Module[800*480] with Touch Panel(SSD1963),ARM STM32 code Cortex-M3
http://bbs.openmcu.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=484&extra
Search it on Ebay, very easy to find.In that Chinese forum (you must register to see the post attachments) they give you several STM32(only) projects with display/touch/SD/DATAFLASH functions and complete datasheets. If you need, I have them all.

Hi all,

In code listing, at end of mesage, draft of kernel driver. I used it when ran android (v1.5) on imx233 (dev board SK-IMX233). This code I wrote long time ago and don't remember works it, or should be corrected something. Anyway I hope this will help to understand how to connect SSD1963 to IMX233.

Byte array 'lcd_init_data' contains confuration words.
Look at the pin confuration structure 'lcd_ssd1963_desc':
PINID_LCD_D00 - PINID_LCD_D07
PINID_LCD_RESET
PINID_LCD_RS
PINID_LCD_CS
PINID_LCD_WR

Except PINID_LCD_VSYNC, forget about it. This is my experiments, to avoid 'tearing' effect.

Listed pins should be connected with SSD1963 by following shcheme:
imx233            SSD1963
LCD_D0-D7   -   D0-D7 (D8-D15 floating)
LCD_RS       -   D/C#
LCD_CS       -   CS#
LCD_RESET   -   RESET#
LCD_WR       -   WR#
  --              -    RD# - (pull up, not used)

Please feel free, ask questions.

Thank you Alex-y for your example, as soon as I'll get my brand new display I'll try it out !

Meanwhile, I was wandering around the net, and stumbled across these :
https://github.com/lipeandres/Stamp-Kernel-Extentions/tree/master/linux-2.6.35.3-17042011-km233/drivers/video/mxs
and
https://github.com/fbrausse/ssd1963

The first is a iMX233 kernel with SSD1963 framebuffer implementation, the second one is a SSD1963 user-space driver library for Raspberry Pi. I'm fairly new in Linux/driver thingy , but I think they are both good examples/implementation  :)

Hi Dataedge,
I viewed links from your message. It very similar to drivers which I used early, as example.
I think it also good examples.   ;)

Hi everyone,

a little update with that site :
http://www.starterkit.ru/html/index.php?name=shop&op=view&id=41
as you can see they have a LCD addon (480x272 - SSD1963 - TS)

I cannot read cyrillic Russian, but in their forum they claim to use original Freescale EVK kernel (linux-2.6.31.12) and that patch:

from this thread (sasamy reply):
