    Thinking of buying, advice please - Sharp 6" Color LCD Display w/ Touchscreen! - Ebay

    I thought this could be used for an application of some sort, looks like a decent deal. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...e=STRK:MEWA:IT

    If I get it, could one of you help me hook it up to somethin? Your ideas for applications are welcome...

    Looks like a lot of closeout electronic things:

    The question marks in your signature; do they mean that you might be using this 6" LCD as the display for your car PC? If yes, then you would need an LCD VGA controller, touch screen controller, and a backlight controller. These three controllers could not only be quite expensive but also kind of challenging to locate. If you are not familiar with what those controllers are then do a search for them. There are tons of information on them in this forum.

    Also, looks like that LCD module has a Hirose connector for the connection to the VGA controller; it is very difficult to find a seller/supplier for that Hirose connector/cable-connector combination.

    Thanks for replying!

    I wasn't going to use it as a primary LCD, the question marks mean I am still on the fence about a 7", but am leaning towards a Super/Avatar screen.

    I just came across this and thought it could be used for something else, but adding all the controller boards doesn't make it a deal no more.

    Any PnP uses for something like this? he has others too

    You are going to need at least the video controller and the backlight controller regardless of the application.
