Using STM32 and TFT LCD display Screen to make ophthalmic surgery instrument

Introduction: Ophthalmic surgical instruments play an important role in eye surgery and examination. This tutorial will guide you to make a simple ophthalmic surgery instrument using STM32  and TFT LCD display module.


Step 1: Prepare required materials

Before starting to make ophthalmic surgery instruments, we need to prepare a series of required materials. Here is a list of materials you will need to gather:
1. STM32 single-chip microcomputer: This is the core component of our ophthalmic surgery equipment. STM32 is a high-performance, low-power, easy-to-program that can provide the processing power and functions we need.
2. Liquid crystal display module: As the interface and display device of the instrument, the TTF LCD display module can provide clear, high-resolution image output. Choose a liquid crystal display module with an appropriate size, so that the ophthalmologist can observe and operate conveniently.
3. Sensors: Ophthalmic surgical instruments need to have measurement and detection functions, so we need to choose sensors suitable for ophthalmic applications. For example, light sensors are used to detect ambient light intensity, temperature sensors are used to measure ambient temperature, and so on.
4. Connecting wires and cables: Make sure you prepare enough connecting wires and cables to connect various parts and components. These connecting wires and cables should have stable connectivity, good electrical signal transmission performance, and comply with the required standards and specifications.
5. Power supply: In order to make the ophthalmic surgery instrument work normally, we need a stable power supply. According to the power consumption and voltage requirements of the selected components and components, select an appropriate power supply to ensure a stable power output.
6, After collecting the required materials, make sure you carefully inspect each item to ensure its quality and function meet the requirements. Replace or repair any missing or damaged material promptly.

Step Two: Designing the Circuit and Board

Before we start assembling the ophthalmic surgery instrument, we need to do circuit design and circuit board design. This step is critical because good circuit design ensures instrument stability, reliability, and performance.
First, the circuit design is carried out according to the functional requirements of the ophthalmic surgical instrument. Determine the required analog and digital circuits, and connect and layout according to the pins and functions of the STM32. Ensure signal stability, reduce noise and interference.
Then, use circuit design software to draw a circuit diagram. Connect each component and part according to its connection relationship and function, and make necessary labels and notes. Make sure the circuit diagram is clear and easy to understand.
Next, proceed to the board design. Convert circuit diagrams to actual board layouts with components placed and routed. According to the size and connection relationship of the components, a reasonable layout planning is carried out to ensure the compactness and maintainability of the circuit board.
Finally, use a board builder to convert the board design into an actual board. This can be achieved through steps such as circuit board cutting, soldering and assembly. Make sure each component is properly installed and connected, pay attention to the quality control of the circuit board to ensure stability and reliability.

Step 3: Writing and Burning Code

After the circuit design and circuit board production are completed, we need to write and burn the code to realize the required functions and operations.
1, Select a suitable integrated development environment (IDE) and programming language. For STM32 , you can choose to use STM32CubeIDE and C language for programming. These tools and languages have powerful functions and a wide range of applications to meet our needs.
2. Write corresponding codes according to the functional requirements of ophthalmic surgery instruments. Write the driver program of each module and function to realize data acquisition, image processing, user interface and other functions.
3. Code debugging and testing. Use appropriate debugging tools and methods to check the correctness and performance of the code. Simulate real usage situations and scenarios as much as possible, and conduct sufficient testing and verification.
4. Burn the written code into the STM32. By connecting the computer and the single-chip microcomputer, use the burning tool to download the code to the memory of the single-chip microcomputer. Make sure the programming is successful, and perform necessary debugging and verification.


During operation, please pay attention to safety and proper use of electronic components.
If necessary, please refer to the relevant documents and materials of the STM32 and TFT LCD display module.
