VSOS Lcd Emulator (Use a PC as the display for VSOS/VS1005)

Post by Panu » Mon 2013-02-04 17:30

Dear Forum Members,

I made, for a forum member, a piece of PC software which allows to use the VS1005 UART cable to emulate an LCD display. It's very useful for getting started with VS1005 projects that don't have a display or if you don't yet have a working device driver for the display you're using, and want to get your system quickly up and running.

You can use it for example to see error messages and debug messages during development time even if the final product does not have a display.

Also, it's great for taking screenshots of VS1005 software. :lol:

Here's the LCD Emulator: :arrow: viewtopic.php?t=892&p=3592#p3591 <= There it is.

Hmm, strange. It seems that for some reason, the file lcdEmulation.c is not included in your project. The LcdFilledRectangle function is defined there. Can you try to manually add the lcdEmulation.c into the project's list of C source files and recompile.
