Graphics Library - SSD1926 2D support?
For a new project I have designed in on the SSD1926 graphic controller for two primary reasons;
1) Embedded RAM and QFP package simplify PCB design & manufacturing (no BGA, no external RAM = good).
2) The SSD1926 has a 2D accelerator that performs many operations using on-chip hardware. These include screen panning, bit blitter, line, rectangle and ellipse drawing, a hardware JPEG decoder, and picture-in-picture. While this 2D accelerator is absent of many other nice-to-have features (like anti-aliasing), it still goes a long way to reducing host CPU cycles and memory footprint.
BUT, it appears that the Microchip graphic library driver for the SSD1926 does not take advantage of any of these cool featuures. Instead, the SSD1926 driver appears to be little more than a renamed SSD1906 driver. ie: All the 2D accellerator functions are not used. All primitives are drawing painstakingly by paintnig each pixel.
Since Microchip is using the SSD1926 on the PICtail™ Plus Daughter Board (AC164127-3), one hopes that support for the 2D featuers of the SSD1926 will soon make their way into the graphic library.
Can anyone shed any light on this?
