    Sold!: 8.4" VGA LCD (DennisK) with touch controller for SBC's

    Due to some unexpected expenses, I'm having to sell my LCD package ...here is what you get:

    - Sharp LQ9D161 8.4" VGA LCD (640x480 4096 colors)
    - MicroTouch touchscreen overlay
    - MicroTouch touchscreen controller with serial cable (difficult to obtain)
    - TDK CXA-L0512-NJL Backlight Power Inverter
    - LCD cable to connect the LCD's 31pin hirose connector to a 2mm 44pin LCD connector found on many SBC's (tested with Advantech PCM-5862)

    Basically, this is "plug and play" if you have a SBC with a similar controller. All you'd have to do is plug it in, provide 12v to the inverter and touchscreen controller and you have a working touchscreen LCD for your dash. Here's a pic of it in action:



    Item is SOLD!

    How long is the cable going from the SBC to the LCD? Also, how bright is the display (sunlight readable)?

    I don't know much about SBCs (Single Board Comp).

    What other options will proplerly feed video to this unit.

    If it will take TV out, S-Vid or VGA. I would Like to buy it from you.

    Please indicate payment/delivery options

    I read the board a couple times a day.

    mtmsol:

    The cable is a little longer than 24". The display is mildly bright. It would definitely be readable in dim or indirect light, but might be difficult to read in direct sunlight.

    gkli:

    Shipping will be at cost with the insurance level of your choice.

    TruckinMP3:

    This setup does not include a controller, so it won't work as is without an SBC. Of course with the proper controller, any of the inputs you mentioned could be available. Controllers from EarthLCD are very likely compatible with this cable as I purchased it from them.

    OK, on a scale of 1 to 10, what would you rate the visibility in direct sunlight?

    I'm definately interested, I just want to be able to see it =D

    I've already gotten rid of the SBC I was using to test it with, but it seemed pretty bright. I'd probably give it a 6 or 7. It's perfectly suitable for incar applications like GPS and music. Unless you have a convertable, I don't imagine that direct sunlight is going to be an issue 90% of the time.

    ok, I would be using this with a regular computer, not a SBC, how much do you think a compatible vga controller would cost?

    And how would you want the money? Paypal, check, money order?
