I'm looking to interface the AT32AP7000 with a TFT LCD.. Looking at the datasheet under LCDC, I see that I can interface a TFT with "1, 2, 4 or 8 Bits per Pixel (Palletized), 16 or 24 Bits per Pixel (Non-palletized)"
However, the lcd I wish to interface is 6 bits per color which I would take as 18 bits per pixel..
Later in the datasheet in the section labeled "35.12.2 TFT Mode Example", there are example settings for an NEC panel w/ model# NL6448BC20-08.. The AT32AP7000 datasheet refers to the NEC panel as "16-bit single scan" yet the datasheet for the NEC panel shows "6 bit digital signals for data of RGB colors" which I would interpret as 18 bits per pixel just like my panel (http://www.arcom.com/products/icp/dev_kits/NEC_TFT_Nov06.pdf)..
I'm obviously reading this wrong.. Can someone explain what is meant by "16 bits per pixel" in the Atmel datasheet and how this corresponds with "6 bits per color" on the NEC panel?
