Hello all,

I am trying to use a LCD panel from a old laptop (Dell Inspiron 4150). I dismantled the panel and here is a picture of it.



I have a Altera FPGA kit and downloaded a LCD controller module from opencores. I would like to now drive the panel using the FPGA. I need to know the panel connector's pinout so that I can give it the right signals. Here is a picture of the connector.



The connector has the label "DD0TM7LC567 SXGA+" on it. Does anyone know where to find pinout details for this? I also need to build an adaptor cable between the 40-pin IDE output on the FPGA kit to this connector. Any pointers on what type of connector this is, and where I can buy the corresponding female socket will be greatly appreciated.
