Re: Looking for a 54 pin 0.5mm fpc breakout board

@mattc could you possibly make a video of the screen working? Is there any recommended place to get the parts?

Re: Looking for a 54 pin 0.5mm fpc breakout board

@Helder So basically varying the voltage to the LCD (24V) allows for varying brightness?

Even I was working on the PCB. I modified it for a 24 bit.

Re: Looking for a 54 pin 0.5mm fpc breakout board

Is there a brightness control support to this?

Also from where do you get the components to populate the pcb?

Re: Looking for a 54 pin 0.5mm fpc breakout board

Feel free to make a copy of my 18-bit DPI Board. Get the eagle schematic/board here: https://github.com/mattc74/DPI-Pi You can get a few of these printed at dirtypcbs.com and either just use as a breakout or populate for a fixed brightness Backlight. :D Why are you using 3.3v to boost to 24v rather...

Re: Variant 8 screen video won't stop scrolling

Reattach the lcd ribbon, make a video of the problem and post the framebuffer resolution and sdtv_mode parameter values in the config.txt.

Re: Composite vs DPI

Here is the "driver" (note it won't exactly look like this or mount this way, it's just a prototype): http://i.imgur.com/XYWQKtD.jpg @kite this is what I was talking about. Would you be selling something like this in the future? The pcb sticking outside might have an advantage of soldering them lik...

Re: [tinkerBOY] Game Boy Three - RPi3 and DPI screen in 24-bit mode [WIP]

Can you post some more photos of the working screen so that it is easier to compare. Also How do you find out the pin configuration of the ribbon cable side. I can see that the PCB is actually quite minimal with practically no components other than the ribbon holder. Does this configuration work for...
