VC707 LCD Documentation

Hi, 

 

I wish to use the 16x2 LCD display panel on the Spartan VC707 board as part of a Verilog design project, but I cannot seem to find any documentation for the VC707 that explains the timing and control of the LCD .


The documentation for the Spartan-3E has a detailed section explaining the control commands and the timing for the LCD, but there doesn't seem to be an equivalent section for the Virtex 7 Vc707 board. I was working under the assumption that the timing and controls are the same for the VC707 as they are outlined for the 3E, but I am not sure. Can anyone confirm if the LCD section outlined here: http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/boards_and_kits/ug230.pdf remains valid for the VC707 ?

Re: VC707 LCD Documentation

Hi Balkris,

 

Thanks for the links, I was working from the updated document version already so thankfully no issue with pins. Your answer would seem to suggest that the setup-times, wait times and all that are the same for the LCD in the 3E as in the VC707 ?
