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 128×64 (or possibly 128×32) monochrome screen
  • Intended for output only (e.g. no buttons, on-screen keyboard etc.)
  • TTL serial input (including auto-bauding)
  • 10×4 character display (with large font)
  • 32×12 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 12×16 pixel font.
