Step 1: Open the package of the sample, you will see as follows:
Step 2: Open the plastic package and connect the display and the converter with Double
Step 2: Open the plastic package and connect the display and the converter with Double 8-pin Connect cable.
Step 3: Power on and insert the other end into the power slot of the converter, connect the display, then the light on the display would be on.
(Package does not include power supply, but display supports any power supply between 6V~35V, we usually use 12V DC)
Step 4: Take out the mini USB cable, insert into your host with one end and insert the other end into the mini USB slot on the converter, then the converter’s light would be on.
Step 5: Insert the flash disk and install our software: TOOL 2019. Then open our DEMO file, the file’s format should be .vt, then click Tool(T) and select “ screen configuration” or you can also click the icon as shown in the below figure:
directly set screen parameter configuration, check R1 (Serial baud rate): 115200, R3 (Serial port frame high byte): 0*A5, RA (Serial port frame low byte): 0*5A. Don’t forget to select option: “Touch screen input parameters are automatically uploaded to the serial port”. Set your Boot page. As shown in the below figure:
Step 6: Clicking Tool(T) and select “generating configuration file” or you can also press F7, or click the icon as shown in the below figure:
Step 7: The configuration file generated via the Intelligent TFT LCD Module 4.3 development kit can be downloaded to the display terminal via USB or a U flash disk.
>USB download is applicable to the R&D stage. It shall be avoided for the debugging stage due to repeated modifications to design, which may result in plugging a U flash disk repeatedly.
>U flash disk download is applicable to mass production upon the finalized R&D. It can effectively improve the download efficiency and lower the operation quality requirements for operators.
The resource manager in the computer will display the Intelligent TFT LCD Module _USER volume label.
Click "Tool→Download a Configuration File (Ctrl+D)", or the "Download a Configuration File" button in the toolbar as shown in the below figure:
with a download dialog box as shown in Figure 3-10 popped up.
Figure 3-10 Download a Configuration File
When the Intelligent TFT LCD Module is connected to the computer successfully, the download dialog box will prompt as "USB connected", with the detected USB name " Intelligent TFT LCD Module _USER" displayed. Now click the "Download" button to copy the configuration file directly to the display terminal.
Of course, a user may also copy the VT_SET folder and its contents directly to the Intelligent TFT LCD Module _USER disc via the Windows resource manager.
Copy the "VT_SET" project folder and files contained in it to the root directory of a U flash disk The "VT_SET" folder contains information on all the configuration files, fonts, images and icon libraries, etc.
A user cannot make any modification to the files contained in this folder. However, he/she may suffix characters to "FT_SET" regarding the folder name, for instance"VT_SETxxxx".
Insert the U flash disk into the Intelligent TFT LCD Module.
Power up the Intelligent TFT LCD Module/download the files.
After the Intelligent TFT LCD Module detects the U flash disk, information in the detected U flash disk will be displayed, with all the information under the "VT_SETxxxx" folder in the card downloaded to the Intelligent TFT LCD Module. After the U flash disk is downloaded, the Intelligent TFT LCD Module will prompt as downloaded successfully.
Take out the U flash disk to end the downloading.
