Well, sorry for the lack of update however i have started receiving my items and I have started connecting them.
First up the liliput screen:
Nice screen works very well, I'm trying to figure out the best way to Extend the breakout cable. I remember reading a post stating that a good cable to use is a 9-pin mini din. After buying a couple of these cables i noticed that the way the male and female interfaces on the breakout cable were not aligned the same as with the cables I bought. Also the break out cable interface seemed like it was 10 pin instead of 9. So I though of taking the other route and buy separate vga cables and usb cables. I opted for the generic/cheap brand of vga cable and got what i paid for. After connecting the extension VGA cable between the motherboard and the lcd touchscreen the picture quality was missing some red color. So this time I plan to get a better type cable.
Next item i got ws the M2-ATX 160W DC-DC Power Supply:
Very nice device, I have it powering everything except my touchscreen
One thing I wanted was a slot loading cd/dvd slim cdrom:
However the problem was since I was going to have the mother board at the back of the vehicle and the drive at the front console i would need to extend the cable. I'm not sure how far i can extend IDE cables but I have a feeling they won't work well going past 6 feet. So I found an Alternative.
This is a very nice module that converts the ATA interface of the drive to USB. I connected this module to the drive and tried it out. I had problems at first because after inserting a cd/dvd into the drive it would just spin and fail. Until someone mention that it probably needed more power. So I got a barrel plug and connected the it to the module and applied power to the plug (btw the outer portion of the plug is negative and the inner is positive).
That's all i have for now, I'll take more pictures of the system later on.
