A simple repository of largely nonsensical wittering. It may (or may not) be to do with what the Batsocks lot are currently using their Idle cycles for.

Tiny Terminal Reboot

ElectronicsPosted by condemned Sun, March 29, 2015 20:42:19
After a 2+ year hiatus on the tiny terminal emulator, I've picked up the project again! My aims are slightly different this time:
  • OLED 128x64 (or possibly 128x32) monochrome screen
  • Intended for output only (e.g. no buttons, on-screen keyboard etc.)
  • TTL serial input (including auto-bauding)
  • 10x4 character display (with large font)
  • 32x12 character display (with tiny, barely readable font)
The only major hurdle at the moment is working out how unicode is dealt with. I've been naively assuming that VT200+ is all that's required, however modern linux doesn't seem to talk in G0,G1 pages... some investigation is needed.

Where would a blog post be without a picture?
That's a 12x16 pixel font.
