> I want to connect an LCD to my RPI through DSI connection.
Going back to the original idea. It seems that there is at least one potential
LCD DSI screen that would nicely complement Raspberry Pi.
I have been following Mike's iPod Nano LCD hacking efforts and in his latest
installment he discovered that the Gen 6 IPod LCD is using MIPI DSI.
The details are in the series of videos posted on his YouTube channel, look for :
"Reverse Engineering the iPod Nano 6 LCD interface"
"Ipod Nano 6 LCD hack".
In his third video he shows a little board with a Chinese iPod LCD he got for something
like $5. He is driving it with Lattice FPGA from data in the SPI flash. However,
he makes it clear that this setup is a bit of an overkill an it would be possible to do it
even from SPI port on an 8-bit MCU with proper signaling for the LCD.
If 8-bitter can do it with 2MHz SPI then bcm2835 should be able to "blast"
this screen with data.
That little LCD is just begging to be connected to he DSI port on my RasPi!
Weekend is coming up and I would highly recommend watching his videos on the
LCD hacking and others too. Beats watching almost anything on "idiottube"
