I'm afraid that that's not the information required - a lot of displays have a ribbon cable with some sort of plug.
What you would need to know is what "language" the display essentially talks - that's what determines whether or not it would be possible to use it. Some standards that I know of for this (it's not a field I know a lot about, though - I've just picked up tiny snippets from reading things around here) are LVDS and DSI (which is of no relation to the Nintendo DSi
), for example. If it's something proprietary, then there's little chance of you being able to use it with anything other than a Nintendo DSi.
"May be compatible" with what, though? It may well be a custom connector, and even if it isn't, the above matter of how the display communicates is really what's key.
Also, I'd rather use a DSI XL screen rather than an Adafruit one because it is MUCH thinner.
Ahh, I see.
Well, I wish you the best of luck. I'm afraid I can't find any information out there about what interface these displays actually use, and I honestly don't know how to proceed from that point.
EDIT: Come to think of it, perhaps there might be something over in the Interfacing section of the forum
