Hack-a-Gecko day: 07. Oct. 2011
Sharp’s Memory LCD technology provides high-resolution while having extremely low power consumption (15 µW). The sharp memory is embedded in every pixel and operates from 3V to 5V.
The task of Hack-a-Gecko project was to evaluate the new Sharp Memory LCD technology. What we first tried was to connect the LCD to the EFM32 using a prototyping board and then created a simple demo showcase with high resolution as shown below. We also created a simple animation demo showing the high updating frequency.
