BT816 and PIC18F46K22 with external memory (SD CARD)
« on: May 14, 2019, 01:46:50 PM »

Hi all,

I'm planing to store images (bmp/jpg) on sd card and I'm wondering if that is going to be possible to display on screen using BT816 chip? or image need to be converted first and loaded to display?
Next question, dial widget. Is it possible to create custom dial (or slider)? If yes, is someone did it already maybe, maybe some examples? 

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

Please see section 7 of the following application note, it covers the methods available for loading images to display:
https://brtchip.com/wp-content/uploads/Support/Documentation/Application_Notes/ICs/EVE/BRT_AN_014_FT81X_Simple_PIC_Library_Examples.pdf

Predominantly the image will need to be converted to be used, but it is possible to directly load some .png images.

Yes, it is possible to create your own custom widgets.

Best Regards,

Hello again,

Could you give maybe some more details how to do that, please?

Rudolph, thank you for this information, now I need to "digest" it and try to play with it  ;D

Could you not trace the previous owner and see if they still have the card?
