The AUO displays have an included driver,
the Nec display needs a separate driver board.
But I do not recommend the NL display, because its very expensive !

Hi,

normaly all 8 bit single channel lvds displays should work out of the box. 6 bit displays not tested...

I have successfully tested the following displays till now:

AUO : G065VN01 V2 ~ 135 €/unit at msc-ge
AUO : G084SN05 V9
NEC: NL6448BC20-21D (additional Inverter needed)

I'll keep on testing every display, i can get :-)
Hi,
I am quite impressed with your work Jorabo, Thanks.

Do you have any plans to also manufacture an adapter for dual channel LVDS displays?
I have this LG panel, LM215WF3. Currently I use it with an HDMI cable, however it would be great use it with a adapter like yours... to control the led backlight. etc..

Hi mhct,

dual channel is planned, but next project is loudspeakers with amplifier for the Pi.
I think dual channel project will start at may or june... sorry.

Wow, that is also great Jarobo, I can live with HDMI for a while... since I think it would be too much for me to try making this dual channel adapter by myself... I am a newbie in hardware stuff.

On the other hand I was also thinking about adding loudspeakers + amplifiers to the Pi. My goal with the loudspeakers is to make an application for deaf people... I already have the Piside of the app, which can receive and play the sounds...

Is there a way one can I follow you, or your project?

Cheers

All our projects are for commercial data access terminals, we build for our customers.
We build the hardware for us as well as for general usage to get a larger count of units ... to get a better price :-)

The loudspeaker-pcb will have 2 (smd )-speakers and a an amplifier for each . It will be directly driven by 5V an is either connectable to the standard audio-out of th Pi or to usb as usb-sound-device.
Give us 4 weeks for the first units...

would not a HDMI audio converter be better [more expensive but much better]

Found the necessary parts, but i think it would be to expensive. The parts for USB / analog device are much cheaper ... sorry.

By the way... some of these complete receiver devices exist already, but price is heavy.

Very interesting board, well done!

I have one question; is there a cheaper alternative for non-touch LVDS screens?

I have just inherited a few old laptop screens, and quite like using a keyboard and mouse.. So touchscreen is not essential or desirable for me.. However, low budget is.

Cheers, Scott

Hi,

there is no touchcontroller on the HDMI-LVDS board,
it is only changing the Signals from HDMI to LVDS nothing else....

The price of the board depends on the price of the ICs...

Hi, sorry, I thought it was for tpuchscres based on the youtube clip...

I think you have made a great board, and will possibly be buying one.

Do you have confidence in it working with many different types / sizes of screens? I'd hate to buy one to find the screens I have don't work with it..

Thanks a lot, Scott

Hey Jorabo,

I spent some time looking for LCD panels that could work with your board. However I couldn't find any BIG IPS panels which are 8-bits single channel...

Do you know if there are any BIG (bigger than 20 inches) IPS panels that could work with your board?

Thanks again for the good work.

Hi Jorabo,

Thanks, I'll have access to them in a couple of days, and will be in touch then.

Mitsubishi AA192AA01 should work, but ist only 19,2 inch

we'll develop an 2 channel board for bigger displays after our louspeaker-project ....
but before, we have to earn some money, because hardware-development is not that cheap :-)

Sorry, found one bigger http://www.msc-ge.com/download/displays ... s-scb1.pdf

this is 47 inch :-), but!!! you'll need separate powersupply

Thanks for the links.... but I am really looking for IPS, instead of , TFT panels...
You mentioned about the 2 channel boards... Do you think the price will be close to the price of the single channel boards?

Finally, the next PCBs arrived.

and I tested another AUO display with our adapter:

AUO G084SN05 V9 (800x600) works fine ! :D
you'll need to add (edit) the following lines in your config.txt

hdmi_edid_file=1
hdmi_force_hotplug=1
hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=9
hdmi_drive=1

framebuffer_depth 24 #(not needed, but looks better)

edid.dat (put in folder /boot) is attached (extract from zip-file and rename to edit.dat)

I'll send a link, where to buy the HDMI->LVDS online.

Okay, so is there a cheap DSI LCD screen that is about 2in big that is compatible with the Raspberry Pi? I'm working on developing a pair of augmented reality glasses (kind of like Google Glass). I'm using the Pi as the base board, and the screen will be in front of the glasses (with lenses to correct distance).
Thanks!

Has anybody tried the iPad Retina display?
These are quite cheap on ebay now and I've seen them hooked up to PCs and Laptops already.
This interface board may be able to drive them? Stupid high resolution too.
