Thanx.. Raas. The Max788 will take a min 8v, it will work nice with 12v witch i need for the TFT converter anyway. but what about some thing to make use of the 5v form tft converter? some thing "inline"? just to drop the 1.7V ? (it is not needed for the backlight, so 3.3v @5a is not needed. only 350ma is needed. It is to drive the LCD itself not the inverter.) Thanx
yeah .. i have that same LCD .. i think we will have to make our own serial cable .. i have the pin outs if you need it.. Email or PM me .
If you need the current there are plenty of other chips out there, everyone uses the MAX788 as that's what the first MP3 car used, and most people are to lazy to see what else there is, why do the work when someone else has already done it?
I think the MAX747 might be more what your looking for. Have a good search through their site, and you'll find the right chip.
By the way I'm not sad, I just spend a couple of hours looking up chips for work the other day, honest.
And you say people actually pay money for M$ Windows? www.mp3mini.co.uk (Does what it says on the URL) www.openclassic.co.uk (The new car, with zero rust!) www.rob-web.co.uk (My other site)
Total re-design underway: on the whole progress is very slow as the car is taking up too much time :)
