  • Visi-Genie C and C++ libraries for custom MCU

    Hi,

    For use with my own MCU (Microchip SAM) to interface with a 4D Systems display I see two possible libraries I could port:

    1. The old Arduino C++ library

    2. The newly added https://github.com/4dsystems/ViSi-Genie-C-Library

    Looking at them they seem quite different. Which one would you recommend regarding features and stability? To me it does not matter if it uses C or C++.

    Thanks in advance,

    Anguel

    Hi Anguel,

    I would recommend using the new C library if you have no preference to C or C++. The new library is proven to be very stable and your system will benefit greatly from it's new code design

    I hope this helps

    Best regards

    Paul

      Thanks a lot, Paul. I actually expected it to be the other way round because the Arduino library exists for a long time ;-)
      Do you have some more extensive examples for using the C library? E.g. with multiple screens and a finite state machine architecture? That would really help.

        Hi Anguel,

        I will ask the team if we have any other suitable examples.

        Best regards

          Thanks a lot, this would be great.
          I just want to double check that the new C library is regarded as production-ready, I see all those BETA hints in the code...

            Hi Anguel,

            The new C library has been extensively tested so you can be assured of it's functionality and is regarded as production-ready. As with all new libraries, we welcome any feedback during it's initial use so we can constantly improve them.

            I will update you as soon as new examples become available.

            Best regards

            Paul
