I recently bought a touch screen to use for the BeagleBone Black, but it doesn’t have a connector. My goal is to connect it via the HDMI capability of the board, and I will probably have to use the USB port to connect the touch screen function (this is the only way I found to connect a touch screen, but if there are better ways please share them)
The model number is
by LG, often used for the touch screen in NOOK Colors, as seen in the piece on the right of this picture:
I managed to find the datasheet for the part:
This LCD employs one interface connections, a 30 pin connector is used for the module electronics interface.
(Connector Type : 30Pin 0.5mm pitch, Matching Connector : JAE AA01B-S030VA1)
I looked for that connector, but it seems that they are primarily sold in bulk or I have to request a quote.
Am I looking in the right places? Is this the right part to use? Are there parts that would work better for what I want to use it for? What may be some options to look at?
