    Want To Buy: Microtouch Controller

    I'm looking for a touchscreen controller for the DennisK setup. Please post here, or email me if you have one you're willing to part with.

    I am unfamailair with the setup you are referring to. Do you need USB || Serial? Cased || uncased? I just traded a microtouch serial controller not long ago for a shutdown circuit. If you want to try and just buy the controller out of pocket, you can snag one for about $100.00 from the following site, but it does not include the Capacitive screen that you will need to go with it.

    If you want to use the USB controller, and you need the drivers for Linux, just give me a yell. I have been maintaining my own kernel patch which adds this driver to the Linux Kernel (2.4.18). It is working great in my setup. Specifically, I am using 14-206 (14-205 is the cased version)

    I knew Jaco sold them, but couldn't find them on the site. Thanks for the link. 100 bucks eh? God, I paid 40 bucks for this thing.

    It's the uncased serial model. I'd say MT3000, but it doesn't look anything like the picture in the pdf that DennisK has. *shrugs*

    The model for the DennisK one is Serial/SMT2 .

    I have a PDF with the correct diagram and pinouts for this if you need it.

    crazyshaxs has one for sale with cable for $45.

    I talked to crazy, and his is the cased serial model. I have the uncased.

    My touchscreen connector is a 12 pin connector (only 6 of which are actually used). His is a 6 pin.

    Cool

    I hope you guys know that the MT3000 aka MicroTouch controller is the same used in touch screen video games.

    I think it goes by MegaTouch on eBay for real cheap.
    Plus you get the serial cable.

    Did you all get cased models like that? Not I. DennisK had me send back my faulty one, but I haven't heard back from him since.. *shrugs*

    It may work if I pulled your connector off and wired the pins up to the board's pins. *shrugs* I didn't want to spend 45 bucks to find out.
