Hey guys, newbie needing help here.
I have a Planar EL6648 MSS display that I removed from obsolete equipment headed to the dump. It has a 16 pin ribbon cable going to it.

What can i do with it? I'd love to make it run off of a computer as a second display, but I don't know anything about driving displays like this.. Don't get me wrong, I'm good with a schematic and soldering iron, i just haven't played with display drivers before.

Was unable to locate a datasheet or useful information for the EL6648. It might have been possible to figure out the interface with the equipment the display was connected to.

I got the pin-out and other technical data from Planar.. It takes Horz and Vert sync and a clock input plus video. Now I just need to learn how to create those signals from a PC

Maybe you could post the information you have or send to my email address. That could help someone to suggest a possible solution.

Sorry, I thought I added that to the last post, but nope! I'll proofread this time.

Thanks so much for your input!

Oh yes, it's actually available straight from the Planar website. Not sure why I missed this.

So this is a 512x256 resolution with that 1-bit input.
