Bill posted a topic in NewsI just got my hands on some 720p and 1080p Embedded Display Port LCDs. These things don't use the traditional clunky laptop-style LVDS interface, they use regular display port signaling. (like you would get out of a port on the back of your PC) If I can hook the power and cables up correctly, I should be able to plug these into my desktop computer and turn them on. The LCDs I have are 13.1 inches, so I have the smallest 1080p display that I have ever seen currently. However the award for the smallest 720p display that I have seen goes to my Samsung Galaxy Nexus, which is pictured. I have acquired the small custom cables that you see pictured, the wires and connectors are very small. I have chopped up a display port cable, and I will hook them together. I have also acquired a 2.5V power supply to run the panels. If this all works I will make some adapter circuit boards for these things. The manufacturer originally said these 1080p panels cost $90, but these first gen ones that my friend got cost like $300, so you might see them in an expensive tablet later this year. (and homemade video projectors) Not only are these panels small but they are thinner and have less electronics and bezel spacing than traditional laptop LCDs. Now for the first round of pictures before I solder it up and find a way to catch something on fire after plugging it into my pretty new Sandy Bridge desktop PC. 720p LCD next to LOTR Blu Ray extended edition LED power connector (I think) Embedded display port connector Ruler next to connector, the marking is an inch Back of 1080p panel Front of 1080p panel Front of 1080p panel compared to Samsung Galaxy Nexus (LTE version) 4.65 inch 720p LCD Display port cable chopped up. If you look closely, you will notice the purple power wire is NOT connected. This is intentional. Half of a display port cable next to the 30 pin custom LCD cable. Closer... Close up of pins on the connector and the thin wires (index finger) I will be back with more pictures if I can make the LCD run. Bill PS: Attached is the spec sheet for the 1080p panel.
