Command Line Tools
iLoader Executable (Windows), version 5.04 from October 19th, 2015 (114 kByte)
iLoader Source Code (.zip, Windows), version 5.04 from October 19th, 2015 (106 kByte)
iLoader Source Code (.tar.gz, Linux), version 5.03 from July 23rd, 2014 (423 kByte)
The iLoader allows you to download raw flash data files (*.rid or *.lcdp-rflash) created with iLCD Manager XE to the iLCD controller. It is written in Standard C and shows how to generally send and receive data via the serial, USB and Ethernet port on the one hand and, on the other, can be modified and integrated into an application to allow updating the flash data without having to use iLCD Manager XE. The sources compile under Borland's C++ Builder 5.0, Embarcadero C++ Builder XE and Linux GCC but can easily be transferred to other operating systems and/or compilers. The sample code archive includes the executables for Windows and Linux.
iUpdate Executable (Windows), version 1.02 from February 8th, 2013 (103 kByte)
iUpdate allows you to download iLCD firmware files (*.lcdp-bin) to the iLCD controller. By integrating it into an application, the firmware can be up- or downgraded without having to use iLCD Manager XE.
Sample Source Code
2D Run-Length Encoding Source Code, version 1.0 from April 30th, 2013 (101 kByte)
This sample code shows how to read and write compressed screen contents using 2D Run-Length Encoding. The Standard C code covers all functions described in the 2D Run-Length Encoding Application Note. It can be used without modification in most cases for your own application. The "main" file contains comments describing the usage.
I²C Source Code, version 1.1 from July 10th, 2012 (41 kByte)
This sample code shows how to operate the iLCD's I²C port. The Standard C code contains a "driver" file, which covers all I²C functions described in the I²C application note. This file can be used without modification in most cases for your own application. The "main" file contains a very simple example how to initialize the iLCD and to show text on the screen. Both files compile under Keil C for 8051 microcontroller at 12MHz but can be easily transferred to any other controller and/or compiler.
There are STEP files available for the following iLCD models:
2.8" iLCD panel 240x320 pixel, with resistive touch panel
3.0" iLCD panel 240x400 pixel, with resistive touch panel
3.5" iLCD panel 320x240 pixel, with resistive touch panel
4.3" iLCD panel 480x272 pixel, with resistive touch panel
5.0" iLCD panel 800x480 pixel, with resistive touch panel
