I have an ILI9341 ST7735 240 x 320px display which I bought intending to use with a 6502 IC. However I cannot find any details online of the basic method of interfacing - all electronics projects seem to use some or other C/Arduino/semi-proprietorial library, which is probably beyond the scope of any 6502 project, and which defeats the point of comprehending exactly how to interface pixel displays with a 6502 or other early chips.
The nearest I have gotten to low-level control is the datasheet for the ILI9341, although the PIC18L2X4XK22 looks compatible with the display, but the 539-page datasheet for that PIC is a bit long if there is a simpler way.
Can anyone suggest an easier route to interfacing a colour display to the 6502 or is PIC interfacing a necessary evil in rigging up displays with older tech? Basically is there a way/tutorial for breadboard-level assembly-type control of a pixel display, without having to bring in masses of other components - Arduinos etc?
I am, of course, using the modern-day Western Digital 14 MHz version of the 6502 to do this, together with a 6522 VIA to (hopefully) speed things up. As ever, displaying basic text will do fine for now, though it would have to be in colour.
