OK - thats good news. We still need 5V for the transducer though don't we?

The SPI connected LCM asic (JBT6K74-AS(PI)) doesn't do any kind of drawing. It mainly controls the power states and the format in which data is shifted out to the LCD (timing), but also includes gamma correction and there are two unexplained parts called "built-in oscillator" and "booster".

Built in oscillator and booster probably together provide the required voltages to supply the LCD, which will typically require at least one supply other than 3.3V. --Speedevil 01:27, 26 July 2007 (CEST)

[edit] 5V supply

I need a 5V supply for this and this - total power draw should be 730 mW (max).
Some advice (best practice) would be appreciated on where to do this and how?
