I have had a USB interfaced display done for a while. Now it's also possible for me to build them for the rest of you if there's interest.

Some features:
  • 128 x 64 pixel graphics display
  • Blue background color, white pixels
  • White LED backlight
  • Software controlled backlight brightness
  • Software controlled contrast
  • USB interface for power and data


Here's how the USB interface looks like:

Front of the display with the protection sheet still in place:

Currently I have it running with LCDInfo and LCDStudio and support for other software like LCDHype can be done also if there's interest.
And of course it's also possible to make your own program work with it.

Price including the USB interface and display would be 65 EUR.

If you're interested in this kind thing let me know ;)

I was not planning to open it that much so that it would be user reprogrammable. Of course firmware updates are possible.

But if you'd like to have just the module and firmware for some other controller I'm open for suggestions and probably can offer support for displays with other controllers too.
I have played with many different controllers and displays during the last years with the previous versions of my usb interfaces but just don't have other display specific boards now.

Hello!
I wonder, is it better to be short or tell all the background... Ah, heck, I will be short :)
Hello, "neighbour"! (assuming you from Finland ). Is there a way or place to learn more about your USB solution? I had running some text LCDs by myself in past, etc, but I just upgraded my system, and there is no parallel port anymore, so I was searching a lot for some interesting USB solutions for fancy PC things. So I came across this one. Yes, i have PCI card that does LPT, but I am using it already for my DiscoLitez hardware WinAmp solution, so for LCDs I am very interested in USB.
So, i am wondering, is your offer still real, and how can I learn more about it? I am experienced in tech and soldering stuff for many years, but i am not a programmer (but sure i know how to programm chips, from hardware point of view )
Anyway, thank you! And I hope to hear from you ;)

Juris,
Riga, Latvia.

Will/is it possible to buy just the interface? I recently bought a KS0108 128*64 graphics LCD and soldered it together but it won't work as I want, only the right half shows :( and perhaps this will work better/easier :)

I wrote the last post, but i forgot to type some stuff and since you can't edit when you are a guest I figured why not register ;)

Anyway, if it is possible to buy just the interface what would it cost including shipping over to your neighbour Sweden? And support for LCDHype would be nice too ;)

Sorry everyone for it taking this long to get response. Haven't had a chance to be much online for the last couple weeks. Now I'll start working on the backlog from that time.

Everyone interested in the USB displays can contact me using my forum profile email.

If you're interested in the interface only we can discuss about that too.

Got all related software from Henri and this thing rocks.
Must get a bigger one someday.
I've got it running using lcdstudio2, which is more suitable for a dumb guy like me.
Fantastic, what can i say...
i can post photo's for those interested...

Ok, will make a small movie.
In the mean while i also got lcdinfo working with Henri's help.
That also works but lcdinfo is new to me so will take some while to get decent results.

edit: movie won't work, camera won't cooperate yet, will try tomorrow. Some pictures can be found here:

just choose next!

edit2:
small low quality movie:

Bit shaky and not 100% sharp/clear

Hello Henri what kind of controller is on the lcd?

I have a T6963C controller on my lcd display, and I’m interested in only the USB controller board. Would these two components work together? Of is it impossible?

Is it possible to sent to the Netherlands?
