Optrex F-51159 glcd controlled by an Arduino

Just got some Optrex F-51159 GLCD’s from eBay.

If you ever need the datasheet or some code example to make them work with an Arduino, read further:

============================================================================
/*
   Demo of a Optrex F-51159 controlled by an Arduino.
  
   Note:
  
   There is no CSEL1, CSEL2 on the F-51159.  Connect CS to  pin 14 (analog_0), Nothing on pin 15 (analog_1)
   See: http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Code/GLCDks0108
  
   LCD Bias voltage (-12 to -5 volts) to glcd pin 3 is mandatory.

   Display is 120 x 64 dots, so make these changes to ‘ks0108_Panel.h’ :
   ———————————————
       // for F-51159NYJ-SEW-AA
       #define DISPLAY_WIDTH 120
       #define DISPLAY_HEIGHT 64

      // panel controller chips
      #define CHIP_WIDTH     60  // pixels per chip
   ———————————————
 */

#include <ks0108.h>
#include “Arial14.h”       
#include “clock.h”           // Clock bitmap

unsigned long startMillis;

void setup(){
  GLCD.Init(NON_INVERTED);  
  GLCD.ClearScreen(); 
  GLCD.DrawBitmap(clock, 0,0, BLACK);
  GLCD.SelectFont(Arial_14);
  GLCD.GotoXY(60, 2);
  GLCD.Puts(“Pixel Show”);
  GLCD.GotoXY(61, 47);
  GLCD.Puts(“by ve2cuy”);
  countdown(9);
}

void countdown(int count){
    while(count–){
     GLCD.GotoXY(30, 40);
     GLCD.PutChar(count + ‘0’);
     delay(1000); 
     GLCD.GotoXY(30, 40);
     GLCD.Puts(”  “);
  } 
}

void  loop(){
  GLCD.ClearScreen();

  startMillis = millis();
  while( millis() – startMillis < 15000){
    GLCD.SetDot( random(120), random(64), BLACK);
  }

  startMillis = millis();
  while( millis() – startMillis < 15000){
    GLCD.SetDot( random(120), random(64), WHITE);
  }

  GLCD.Init(INVERTED); 
  GLCD.ClearScreen();
  GLCD.GotoXY(36, 24);
  GLCD.Puts(“The  end…”);
  while (true){}
}
