    Go for it. I'll replace my WRX with that if you can get it going.

    Lightbulb LVDS 6.95" display with LVDS input

    Currently sourcing a 6.95" display that is less than 100mm high.
    It has a controller that accepts input from a 24bit LVDS source (also 24bit TTL).

    The input to the display is 18bit TTL so the controller does the timing and converting from 24bit LVDS or 24bit TTL to 18bit TTL.
    It's also got a built in CCFL or LED back-light inverter

    most of the new mobos have at least one LVDS output, e.g. the EPIA-NX & PX...

    If a base model had only 24bit LVDS input, would that still be of interest?
    If you are going to mount a nano-itx or pico-itx main board in the 2-din chassis that has this interface why would you even want to deal with an analog VGA interface...

    We would just need to supply the appropriate cable.

    you could always add a analog VGA to LVDS controller to the chassis if you were connecting to VGA.

    I can use the LVDS directly off of my motherboard. Most Commell boards have onboard LVDS. Very interested!

    My issue with my search for LCDs was that I could not find a controller to go TTL->LVDS. Are you getting this custom made or did you find a pre-made one that works with the LCD?

    Also, what res is the LCD?

    It's a pre-made board, actually it's in development and should be released this May.
    The board is being developed for this specific display.

    here are the specs on the display:
    Size - 6.95"
    Resolution - 800x480 (WVGA)
    Brightness - 500 cd/m2
    Contrast - 500:1
    View Angle v/h - 115/135
    Operating temp - -30C/+85C
    Storage temp - -40C/+90C

    The display is specifically designed for the automotive industry to support wide temps and harsh environments.

    The touch screen may reduce the brightness a little but it should still be decent.

    So the end product will be similar to a Lilli or Xenarc?

    for the most part, just in a 2-din chassis.

    afaik, the lilli and Xenarc are also 18bit TTL with a controller to convert to analog RGB.?.?

    I'm trying to figure out if the monitor should have only LVDS input with an add-on board for analog RGB &or DVI or only analog RGB &or DVI with no LVDS input or both?

    This will depend on the availability of the controllers that are compatible with the display.

    any way, just an update...

    People that can use LVDS probably will want that type of connection as it is not offered much...and is superior for CarPC purposes.

    afaik, the lilli and Xenarc are also 18bit TTL with a controller to convert to analog RGB.?.?
    I believe that is correct but I cannot confirm...we would need to see the ribbon pin schematic (Red_0, Red_1, etc.) that comes out of those LCDs...

    Post Dual-Din chassis with 7 inch display

    It's been a few weeks so I thought I'd post an update.

    I've been busy designing the chassis and display bezel, which will use the 6.95" screen.
    I have gotten production quotes on the display, touch screen and control board all of which are very competitive.

    The chassis and I/O are also progressing well, the current design has a few shelf systems that will allow you to mount several components like a 2.5" hard drive, an optical drive or any number of other components.
    It will also have mounting holes for several small form factor mother boards like the VIA NX & PX series so if you have dimensions on other micro MB's send me the spec for it and I'll see if I can accommodate it.

    The biggest design element, I think, is the modular I/O system that allows you to use the chassis & display as a stand alone monitor or a complete in-dash unit. It currently has 3 I/O slots similar to a low-profile PCI slot where components or connector plates can be mounted.

    To go along with the modular I/O I've also been working on a USB amp which I actually started before this project. But this chassis takes precedence over the amp since there is already one of these being worked on here.

    I'm designing a professional quality system and want to make sure it's done right rather than making another sub-par chassis that won't fit half the vehicles out there.

    The reason I haven't posted any pics yet is because it's still in development and I didn't want to give away too much design info, however that philosophy may change...

    Any way that's where were at for now.
