I found this LCD on Alibaba: https://wholesaler.alibaba.com/product- ... 45761.html
I'd like to hook it up to a Pi Zero. The LCD comes with a ribbon cable coming from its driver board as normal, but since the Pi Zero lacks a DSI port, I'll have to solder some jumper wires from the ribbon cable to the Pi Zero's GPIOs. I've seen examples of this online, but those were with other displays. How do I figure out how to go about this?
The product description says its interface input is this: "Digital 24-bit RGB/SERIAL/ RGB/CCIR656/CCIR601", and I'm not sure what to make of that. For starters, it looks like it's a 24-bit RGB display. Every other 3.5" TFT I've found on Alibaba is 16-bit color, so could that 24-bit figure be referring to something else?
A quick Google search reveals that CCIR 601 / 656 appears to be a type of video signal standard. Does this mean that the LCD expects me to send the data in an encoded format instead of raw RGB? I see that it's serial, but is there any way to determine which kind of serial protocol I have implement to send this (possibly encoded) data?
