    (P.S. Long time lurker - post worthy a register)

    Distributor is Future Electronics - 888-880-3449

    The company is headquartered in Canada, but they sell in the US as well.

    They're perfectly willing to sell small quantities.

    Touch panels located...

    I found a resistive touch panel size that is a near perfect fit.

    Ironically, it's labeled as an 8.4" Wide aspect touch panel..

    CyberTouch USA

    Touch Panel 9949:
    http://www.cybertouch.com/9949.pdf



    The touch panel has a transparent area of about 200mm x 118mm, and the display area of the LCD panels is 198mm x 118mm.


    I'll contact them for a quote, but I expect the touch panel kit cost to be around $250-270, with the touch panel and USB controller.

    Universal LVDS Support.. on Intel boards.

    Also, I should note something important:

    With Intel's latest versions of the Intel Embedded Graphics Drivers (IEGD 6.1), it appears to be possible to define custom LVDS display settings to support non-standard LVDS panels without having to modify the system video BIOS.


    What this means is that if you have an Intel-based board with on-board LVDS graphics, then it is possible to build a custom Windows or Linux driver package to support that panel.

    ANY Intel board with LVDS and on-board graphics..


    Oh, and it works with Analog VGA, too.. dual screens, nearly any combination, screen rotation, etc..

    Sweet..

    Giuliano, great posts. You're an encyclopedia of information... much respect.

    I'm thinking going the epia route. The board manual look promising; seem to support 800x480 resolution in the bios menu:

    [Manual linked below -- see page 34]

    you think this board qualifies? granted; the software driver may not (I'll need to look deeper into that) but the question stands...

    With the ability to define the resolution for the lvds panel, will the vga output have to match, as they do now or will you be able to run say a 1024x768 15" monitor via the vga poet, and still run this 9" NEC panel?

    I ask this because the current way that the intel lvds is setup, you cannot change resolutions between lvds and vga out (called crt in the bios).
    SO, if your lcd panel on lvds is 800x600, you can only set a monitor @ 800x600 on the vga port. At least that is how the intel chipsets are now, specifically on the aaeon mb-945t

    Don't bother ordering the inverters, I have them here and I will let you have them for 18.00 each, shipped.

    Side note: Avnet still has not sent that quote I requested, nor has the local NEC rep. Good to see you have at least found a supplier. The price they quoted is a bit high, but in volume I suspect mid 200s for them.

    I'll check on the dual independent screens.. I'm pretty sure I was able to do LVDS and Analog VGA as seperate displays when I used my AUO 800x600 8.4" on the Commell LV-671 - 845GME chipset, but that was with the standard drivers.


    I'm going to order 2-4 of the LCD panels.

    Do you think you can find a better touch panel that fits this display?

    The CyberTouch panel seems like a close fit, and their touch panel controller software seems fully featured, and supports multiple displays with touch panels..


    I'm also going to ask you to make a few cables for me as well, some time in the next few months... I'll compile a parts list and pinouts for you.


    Also, conversations I've had with Kontron lead me to believe that I can drive two single-channel LVDS panels from the on-board LVDS connector as independant displays.

    I'm not entirely sure that this is possible, but it's one of the things I'm going to try.

    Hey guys,

    Regarding the epia board, here's the link to the proper manual:

    http://www.dstcorp.com/DSTupload/Use...IA-NL_v1.0.pdf

    page 34.

    800x480 is supported. Their linux driver is another story, thankfully it's open source so I'll hack out the resolution if I can't force it in the command line.

    No problem on the cables.

    I don't think the lvds will support 2 independant lcd panels at the same time. True there are 2 sets of data pairs and clocks available, (for use with 36/48 bit panels) but they are odd/even when in 2ch mode. These lines carry differents bits of data on each stream compared to what is carried on the respective (d0, d1, d2, d3, clk) streams for 1ch mode.

    I can order a 5 wire panel that has the same specs as the cybertouch and since it is 5 wire, waaaay better quality.

    Let me know when you do order, if I have some extra $$ that I can tie up for 4 months, I will order as well.

    Yeah, I suspected that the on-board LVDS cannot do two independant LCD panels. I also confirmed it with Kontron for my 986LCD board.


    However, I know Kontron is coming out with an ADD2-LVDS card soon that goes in the PCI-Express / SDVO slot that will support two independant LVDS panels.


    I suspect it's based on this MAG-7308-01 card from Display Magic:
    http://www.display-magic.com/MAG-7308-01A%20PB2.pdf (1.3M PDF)


    Since it's based on Intel's SDVO technology, it should work in any 915G or 945G based Intel board.

    Also FYI, ADD-LVDS cards are available for the AGP-based 815G and 845G based boards.



    As for the touch panel you can get, is the transparent area of the touch panel equal or slightly larger than 196 mm x 118 mm?

    Resistive or capacitive?

    Thanks.

    Cool card. I just called them and ordered one.

    The ADD lvds will only work on Intel 915g, 945g or 965g chipsets on the pci express bus.

    Not sure how the kontron board is setup, but if it is agp, I will want one of those too.

    The display magic card will support 2 lcd panels, different sizes, resolutions, etc. It has 2 eproms that read the lcd panel's info from the ieg chip.

    way cool. Thanks for that link.

    the touch panel is 5 wire resistive.
    I will post the pdf.
