Features

QE for Display is one of several solution toolkits which operate within the e² studio integrated development environment.

This product can shorten times to develop embedded systems that include image display through the Video Display Controller 5 (VDC5) in the case of the RZ family and the graphics LCD controller (GLCDC) in the case of the RX family, since QE for Display eases the initial adjustment of the display.

Interlinkage with the separately available RZ/A Software Development Kit strongly supports the development of HMI applications.

Functions

Dedicated View for Easy Settings of LCD Panel Timing

Timing settings which match the refresh rate specification of the display are easy to obtain while checking the results on the actual display. Settings that are not in accord with the requirements of the LCD spec. are marked as being in error, so the user is easily able to identify problems.

(refer to the Note1)

Easy Slider-Based Adjustment of Image Quality Settings

This tool supports various functions for adjusting image quality. You can easily adjust the images while checking the actual display. QE for Video Display Controller 5 for the RZ family supports the adjustment of brightness, contrast, sharpness, gamma correction, and dithering, as well as the rotation and mirroring of images. QE for Display[RX] supports processing to make the settings in a sequence of processing through settings for calibration, brightness, contrast, gamma correction, and then dithering.

(refer to the Note1)

The dedicated GUI makes setting complex gamma correction easy.

Checking the handy block diagram helps you to move around the settings screen without becoming confused.

(refer to the Note1)

Check the Settings on the Actual Display

A single button press writes the current settings to registers, so you can check the results on the actual LCD panel. This tool also has a mode for automatically writing the changes to registers every time a setting is changed.

Generate a Header File Which Reflects the Settings for Use in Projects

When you have finished the settings, the settings corresponding to those in the GUI display are created in a header file for direct incorporation in projects. QE for VDC5 can also operate in conjunction with the Supported Sample Programs.
