need help with lvds. I have a SHARP LQ141X1LH23 lcd. I can"t seem to find any data sheets on this lcd. I will be connecting it to a msi gm965 motherboard.
I have the pin outs for the motherboard from here.
thanks to Rob Whitey. The pin out is listed in section 2-15.
I have the lvds cable from the toshiba tecra laptop that the lcd came from. Also have the backlight inverter. The cable has 6 twisted pairs, and 2 wires that are not twisted. the first set of twisted pairs is red and brown, then dark blue and orange, then orange and brown, orange and brown, orange and brown, light blue and brown, then the 2 dark blue wires that are not twisted.
I believe this to be 18 bit lvds. From other sharp data sheets seems most of their lcd's that are lvds are usually 3.3V.
I realy need some good help finding a data sheet for this lcd, and then help on how to connect the lcd to the msi gm965 motherboard. I have a good understanding of electronics, but lvds is something new to me that I would like to learn and use in my application. Since the tools to make lvds cables are very expensive, could i buy the 40 pin hirose connector and then de pin my lvds cable from the laptop and insert the pins into the new 40 pin hirose connector with the correct pin designations for the motherboard. thus not having to buy or crimp new pins.
