ATMega88 and Color TFT LCD

imga0002Holy crap! Has it really been a year? Damn, I’m not good at this whole blog thing.  Eh, well can’t keep a crazy engineer down, over the past year I have been working as an embedded engineer working on battery systems for hybrid electric vehicles, really cool stuff.  For some of my other projects take a look at my site on electric and vegetable oil powered vehicles:

If you take a look at The Smart Drive you will see I have an electric car I built with friends and family back in 2001.  A while ago the speedometer started to give out in it (hey, it is a 91) and I got the crazy idea of replacing the gauges in the dash with an LCD to show speed and cell voltage.  This back burner project has started to get some traction and I wanted to share my endeavors with everyone else.  Take a look at the full article!

    I used a pen a paper. Each character is an array that is X long where X = rows * columns. Anything non zero is white, zero is black or in this case red
