Some new development here. This is a S1D13700 controller with USB interface meant for driving all those controllerless displays out there with the common 4-bit interface.
Controller board with a RS-232 adapter used during development:
320x240 setup using the controller board:
The board has a 14 pin 1.25mm FFC connector, 12 pin 1.25mm FFC connector and a generic 2.54mm pitch header for connecting to displays. Also built in is a DC/DC converter for the negative voltage and a backlight control.
Preliminary connector documentation available here:
Another display setup using the controller
This is supposed to be a simple to use controller board that doesn't have the sed noise in the picture, USB for easier cabling without the often seen errors with parallel port communications and getting rid of the high processor usage often seen with larger parallel port displays.
At the moment I have some assembled controller boards ready here. And also some lcd's that can be used with the controller if someone would like to have the lcd too.
Final pricing haven't been set yet but it should be about 45 EUR. 22% VAT will be added for EU buyers.
Supported systems include Windows 2000 to Vista 64-bit. Some preliminary testing has been done in Linux too.
There exists drivers for LCDInfo, LCDStudio, LCDHype and MediaPortal at the moment. If you'd like to see some other software supported feel free to give some feedback.
The controller can be also used from your own software using the provided DLL. There are simple commands for writing to the display and then there is also interface for sending direct S1D13700 commands giving full access to the S1D13700 if that is preferred.
These were just some quick facts and more and better formatted information is on it's way.
