(K115)ATOM Display

M5Stack Atom PSRAM - LCD Display Driver Kit

img

ATOM Display is an all-in-one display driver kit, Use FPGA to simulate traditional SPI TFT-LCD Data output. This kit supports image at a maximum resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. It provides advanced signal with great precision colors. Integrated 2.4G Wi-Fi & dual-mode Bluetooth, with 8M Flash + 2M PSRAM memory combination, RGB TO HDMI convert chip. So small yet powerful, which can replace the traditional display driving solution.

Review

Box

It comes in a box. New units are now in bags.

Includes

It comes in a bag.

It came with the main unit, screws, and a hex wrench.

The screws secure the ATOM from the back.

There is an HDMI connector on the top side.

Comparison of Atom Lite and PSRAM. The only difference in appearance is the color.

Connects to LITE, which does not need PSRAM to work.

USB HDMI Capture. This is convenient because you can check it on your computer.

Easy to check.

How to use

The M5GFX library page has instructions on how to use it.

#include <M5AtomDisplay.h>

M5AtomDisplay display(1280, 720);

void setup(void)
{
display.init();
display.setRotation(0);
display.setColorDepth(24);  // 24bit per pixel color setting

display.startWrite();
for (int y = 0; y < display.height(); ++y) {
for (int x = 0; x < display.width(); ++x) {
display.writePixel(x, y, display.color888(x, x + y, y));
}
}
display.endWrite();

for (int i = 0; i < 16; ++i) {
int x = rand() % display.width();
int y = rand() % display.height();
display.drawCircle(x, y, 16, rand());
}
}

void loop(void)
{
display.startWrite();

static constexpr const char hello_str[] = "Hello ATOM Display !";
display.setFont(&fonts::Orbitron_Light_32);
for (int i = -display.textWidth(hello_str); i < display.width(); ++i) {
display.drawString(hello_str, i, (display.height() - display.fontHeight()) >> 1);
}

display.endWrite();
}

Benchmark

I modified this and measured the fps.

- static LGFX lcd;
+ M5AtomDisplay lcd(1280, 720);

The M5GFX is based on the LovyanGFX. There are more sketch examples in LovyanGFX.

In the case of 1280x720, it was 5fps.

In the case of 640x360, it was 21fps.

The number of pixels changes the fps.

FAQ

How to use PSRAM

PSRAM is not available now. Try to develop it with Timer-CAM, etc.

How to 1920x1080@24Hz

In preparation. Available in develop branch.

M5AtomDisplay display(1920, 1080, 24);
M5AtomDisplay display(1920, 960, 30);

Refresh rate has been added. When omitted, it is 60. For 1920x1080, you need to set it to 24. The monitor must support 24Hz.
