I'll probably pick up an inexpensive USB-VGA adapter at some point to drive a second display.
I've read through these posts a few times now and as Im new to carputing Id like a bit of help regarding power supplies for these.
Which is going to be the best solution -
Zotac ION-ITX-A with its 19v DC external supply + CNX-P1900/CNX-P2140
Zotac ION-ITX-D with a 20pin ATX connector + M3-ATX 6V-24V 125W Intelligent Car PSU
Want to install it in an M350 Universal Mini-ITX Enclosure
Also will need power for a dash mounted touch screen, I assume I will need a seperate PSU for this also :(
Thanks for any help!
you can use your CPU PSU to power the screen, just make sure you dont use all its power. Ex my board eats about 15W (mesured) monitor claims to eat 5W (hmmm) PSU claims to give 125W so technocally im only usning 20 out of 125 for both monitor and touchscreeen ;-)
I know it seems like it should work, it has all the right holes, etc, but I have not been able to get VGA out of it at all. I'd love to find out why though.
Sorry to bring an old thread back from the grave, but I'm in the same situation and need a 12V-19V DC-DC adaptor to power a Zotac ION N330 board with 19V input from a CarNetix CNX-P1290 with a 12V output. Does anyone know where I can source one of these in the UK?
