SWIM: NXP's basic graphics library for LPC products
1. Introduction
Simple Window Interface Manager (SWIM) is a basic graphics library developed for the
NXP LPC products. It can be also be used with LPC controllers that do not have a
dedicated LCD interface. The SWIM graphics library allows developers to quickly and
easily implement a system with basic graphics support.
Project examples for IAR EWARM, KEIL MDK, and Rowley Crossworks toolchains are
provided as part of the package. These projects are directed at the following target
platforms:
 LPC3250 from Phytec: http://www.phytec.com
 LPC2478 from EA: http://www.embeddedartists.com
 IRD Platform from NXP: http://ics.nxp.com/support/boards/ird/
 LPC1850 from Hitex: http://www.hitex.com/index.php?id=3212
 LPC1788 from EA http://www.embeddedartists.com
The example projects demonstrate how to use the library and will help users get familiar
with the library calls quickly and efficiently.
2. SWIM features
The following section describes the main features and functionality of the SWIM library.
In addition, the library code is well commented and an associated API document for the
software calls - SWIM v1.0.pdf – is also available. Some of the main SWIM functions are
briefly summarized in the following subsections.

4.1 Description of EA LPC2478 board setup
The EA-2478 board should come preassembled with the LPC2478 core board installed
and the Truly LCD module attached. If not, refer to the EA-2478 User’s Manual to
assemble them properly.
The jumpers can be left in the default position when shipped from the factory. The
jumpers on this board are not labeled with the standard “J1” labels but only descriptive
labels. The ones that matter for the example projects are:
 Int/Ext display – set to internal display
 Enable LCD – installed
 16 bit / 24 bit RGB data – set to 16 bit
 Backlight shutdown – removed
 Enable JTAG – installed
The EA-2478 board has either 32 MB or 16 MB of external SDRAM using a x16 or a x32
SDRAM device in U9 or U13 respectively:
 K4S561632H-UC75 (256 Mbit SDRAM, 16-bit databus) from Samsung
(LPC2478-16 OEM Board)
 K4M563233G-HN75 (256 Mbit Mobile SDRAM, 32-bit databus) from Samsung
(v1.0 of LPC2478-32 OEM Board)
 MT48LC8M32B2B5-7 (256 Mbit SDRAM, 32-bit databus) from Micron
(v1.1a of LPC2478-32 OEM Board)
This example is setup for the x32 Micron SDRAM configuration, v1.1a of the LPC247832 core board. For other versions of the core board it may be necessary to modify the
SDRAM initialization code in the "ex_sdram.c" file. The SDRAM memory will be used as
the LCD frame buffer memory for this example. The SDRAM memory resides at address:
 0xA0000000 - 0xA1FFFFFF using DYNCS0 (32 MB, 8Mx32)
In 240x320 16bpp RGB1:5:5:5 mode, the frame buffer uses 150 kB starting at:
 0xA0000000 within the SDRAM.
The Truly LCD module on the EA-2478 board contains a complete LCD controller
module with its own frame buffer as well as a hardware touchscreen controller. The
example presented disables the LCD controller and frame buffer on the Truly module and
places the LCD module into a dumb RGB1:5:5:5 mode. The SPI interface to the module
is used to program the module into this mode. The parameters for the Truly LCD panel
are configured in lcd_params.c.

separate power domain, and NAND Flash and DDR memory controllers. These features
make the devices particularly suitable for automotive and industrial control applications
as well as medical systems.
5.1 Description of Phytec board setup
The LPC3250 Phytec is shipped with a preinstalled bootloader called the stage 1 loader
(S1L). It is assumed that this is present on the board. The S1L first initializes the board
with the code from the phy3250_startup_entry.s and phy3250_startup.c files before
starting the monitor program. Without this initialization the colorbar example will not run.
Be sure to configure your system defines in phy3250_board.h to match your hardware
revisions. Failure to properly set these defines to the correct value may prevent the code
from working correctly.
The possible define values are below:
 PHY3250_CARRIERBOARD_1305_X
 PHY3250_MODULEBOARD_1304_X
 PHY3250_LCD_1307_X
LCD modules have a board number of 1307.x, where x = 0 or 1. The change between .0
and .1 LCD module is detailed below:
LCD module revision differences:

7. EA LPC1788 Setup
The Embedded Artists LPC1788 OEM Board is a small, reusable DIMM module that
mounts to the EA OEM Base Board. The OEM Base Board has many I/O connectors
including J26, a 50 pin connector for an external LCD. Several external LCDs can be
plugged in. The SWIM library is designed to work with a Truly 3” LCD module (EA QVGA
TFT LCD v2.3) and QVGA display adapter. The whole setup can be powered either by a
USB connector J32 or a DC barrel connector U18.
7.1 Description of the Embedded Artists board and Truly panel setup
The supplied example software is designed to run on the four-piece setup from EA
including the LPC1788 DIMM and Truly QVGA display. Before assembling everything, a
few jumpers must be checked on the QVGA LCD Adapter. The CFG1 through CFG4
jumpers need to be set up like so:
CFG1 H
CFG2 L
CFG3 L
CFG4 L
Also, there is a jumper labeled PWM / SHDN. This should be in the SHDN position.
Once the jumpers on the adapter have been set up properly, the whole system can be
connected together. The QVGA LCD LCD v2.3 should be connected to the QVGA
Display Adapter, which is connected to the EA OEM Base Board using the 50-pin ribbon
cable. On the EA OEM Base Board, an LPC1788 OEM Module DIMM should be inserted
(red).
The display used in this setup is the Truly G240320LTSW, a portrait-mode QVGA
module. Although this is a smart module capable of managing its own raster refreshes, in
this application it is reconfigured to display 16-bit RGB data (1:5:5:5 mode) directly from
the LPC1788. This configuration happens in lcd_driver.c in lcd_hw_init_Truly() which
initializes the SSP interface to communicate with the display and lcd_display_init_Truly()
which writes the registers in the LCD controller to configure 1:5:5:5 mode.
The SDRAM is present on the EA OEM Module DIMM and is a single chip ISSI
IS42S32800D. This SDRAM implements a 32-bit wide 32 megabyte memory area, of
which 150 KB is reserved for the LCD framebuffer.

8. Miscellaneous
8.1 RGB setting
The SWIM RGB format will need to be adapted depending on the format supported by
the LCD and the manner in which the LCD is connected to the LPC controller.
For the Phytec board, the LCD uses RGB565 while the Hitex, EA and IRD examples use
RGB555.
In the file “lpc_colors.h” set the RGB for the particular format as shown below:
For Phytec LPC3250 Board:
#define COLORS_DEF 16
/* 16-bit 565 color mode */
For EA LPC2478 and IRD boards:
#define COLORS_DEF 15
/* 15-bit 555 color mode */
The SWIM library will can also be used to manipulate and display Bitmaps.
