I think we need price!Originally Posted by GiulianoHey all,
I've been planning on putting a CarPC in my 2003 WRX Wagon, with a LCD in the double-din, for MP3/Navigation.
I've been doing research on what type of an LCD might be the best for my application, and I've been picky about what I want - widescreen, high resolution (800x480 or 800x600), high brightness, and preferably a VGA or LVDS interface.
Most of the screens I looked at were either too big (8.4"+), too small, (~6"), were too low of a resolution (640x480), or were video-only (not VGA/LVDS).
I didn't want to have to take a Xenarc or a Liliput and tear it apart to get the bare LCD and parts, and I didn't want to have to get a kit (like DWW's).
I found this 7" LCD from Toppoly:
- Wide VGA resolution (854x480)
- Supports NTSC/PAL/SECAM TV and VGA standard (possibly LVDS?)
- Supports picture rotation in U/D and L/R directions
- High brightness (420 cd/m2)
- Aspect ratio (16:9)
The System Block Diagram link above (1st of 3) seems to indicate that the LCD might have a LVDS interface.
The company's web site indicates that sample quantities are available, and production is set for right around now.
I have no idea how much they're asking, or whether they'll sell, but the specs look highly interesting.
