Sharp memory display generic shield
This is a generic shield for Sharp memory pixel LCD. It supports displays of LS0XX type. These displays have an SPI interface and few other pins. Note that the SCS is active high for this display.
The DISP pin controls whether to display memory
contents or show all white pixels, this can be connected
directly to VDD, to always display memory contents or connected
to a gpio. If devicetree contains
disp-en-gpios then it will be set to
high during driver initialization. Display blanking apis can be used
to control it.
Sharp memory displays require toggling the VCOM signal periodically to prevent a DC bias occurring in the panel as mentioned in the appnote  and datasheet . The DC bias can damage the LCD and reduce the life. This signal must be supplied from either serial input (sw) or an external signal on the EXTCOMIN pin.
Currently the driver only supports VCOM toggling using the EXTCOMIN pin
(EXTMODE pin is connected to VDD).
extcomin-gpios is defined, driver starts a thread which will
toggle EXTCOMIN at
extcomin-frequency frequency. Higher frequency
gives better contrast while lower frequency saves power.
To use a different method of toggling for example pwm, user may not
extcomin-gpios and implement their preferred method in

Current supported displays
Following displays are supported but shield only exists for LS013B7DH03. Other shields can be added by using the LS013B7DH03 as a reference and changing the width, height, etc configurations.
LS012B7DD01 LS012B7DD06 LS013B7DH03 LS013B7DH05 LS013B7DH06 LS027B7DH01A LS032B7DD02 LS044Q7DH01
This shield can only be used with a board that provides a configuration for Arduino connectors and defines node aliases for SPI and GPIO interfaces (see Shields for more details).
