> Hi all,
> Does any of you have experience with interfacing smart lcd panels, with

> I'm interfacing an ILI9327DS smart panel controller, all commands
> are handled correctly, however the SMART_CMD_WRITE_FRAME command (which
> sends out all frame data) seems to produce an invalid number of output
> bytes every now and then.
> This results in a shifted display, every 10-100 updates (immediately
> corrected by the next update)
> The strange thing is that this does not occur with a pxa300, but it
> occurs with the pxa310 and pxa320.
> However running the 310/320 with the same ACCR as I'm running the 300
> does not 'fix' it.
> And I'm not sure it is even timing related, I've tried to configure
> huge smart timing delay parameters, but the results remain the same.
> (in fact I can even lower the parameters to way under the
> controller specs, and the issue does not get worse).
> I've also played with the drive strength of the LCD lines, which also
> does not have an effect on the issue.
> I do not think this is a controller bug, because before this ILI9327DS
> controller, we had a display with a different controller chip, with
> which I experienced the same thing, however at that time even with the
> pxa300.
> We switched to the ILI9327DS (for a different reason), and I was glad to
> find that it worked fine with the pxa300.
> Till I discovered it had the same issues, but then only with a
> pxa310/320.
> Does this sound familiar to anyone?
> Is there anything else I might try to get rid of this issue?
> Regards, Pieter
