[beagleboard] Looking for 7" to 12" LCD

I have been searching for it for a long time.
I am able to find lot of them but there are all resistive touch screens.
If you know any LCD with capacitance then please..

Indeed, most of the options I could find are resistive. Capacitive
addons are dificult to find as well.

Almost all displays with capacitive touch screens are for strong mobile vendors. If you are able to buy at least 5000pcs at once then you can just ask any big distributor

But you can buy a capacitive 7’’ touchscreen for ~60USD (with controller) and put it in any 7’’ LCD you need (from 50USD)

Link please?

3Mc apacitive touchscreen (MicroTouch, comes already with controller board) 45usd

You will need the proper the usb cable (they carry it)

LCD with controller boards (vga, hdmi, whatever)

vitrolight.com

They have 7’’ in several forms (some good 500 cd/m2 and 600cd/m2)

Link please?

You can use the 4.3” PSP1000 LCD which you can buy on eBay for less than $20. Touchscreen is available from here

To make this all work, you will need:

  1. voltage translators (1.8V <-> 3.3V)

  2. constant current back light controller

  3. touchscreen controller connected to SPI interface

There is also a very cheap breakout connector that could probably be used to adapt this screen to the beagle:

Now I am very sorely tempted, although I still have no idea what I’m doing. :slight_smile:

Sweet, thanks!

maybe ubuntu is "special"?

maybe ubuntu is “special”?

but then it is “open source” (you can see where it is “special”)
