Dangit! How do I always find out about new boards after the pre-orders close?

Kite, if you have someone back out of a Circuit Sword CM3 order, please let me know. I would also be interested in the 640 screen adapter.

I had exactly the same feeling for other projects that I completely missed.
Luckily, I was able to pre-order this one, and I have also ordered the 640 screen adapter, but I may not use it.
Ping me in case you are able to get your hands on a kit and you want the adapter.

Has anyone been able to source the upgraded screen? I've sent a million quotes to Alibaba and I think the people there are all morons or don't know how to read for some reason. I have sent all three part numbers almost every time and they just keep returning me quotes for other screens. I don't get why this is so hard.

I wasn't able to. I did some research but couldn't find any of the three options. Gave up (for now)

@kite

What is significant about the 640x480 displays you've recommended? For example, is it just:

- HX8363A Display driver
- 3-pin SPI interface
- Pinout (can you provide the Pinout the board expects?)

I'm finding lots of similar options but they all see to have slightly different part numbers. Want to make sure we are ordering the right display!

Thanks!

The important specs are:

Sunlight readable 640x480 3.5" 40P LCD

The most important is the 40P connector. There are some that are basically the same but in a 39P, you must have a 40P connector :) there are many part numbers for the same panel, and that string above is what they are commonly described as. Technically they are "Parallel RGB interface" with 3 wire SPI, but providing the 40P connector is there i have never seen one that wouldn't work in that config :)

What is a Circuit GEM, in laymens terms? I see it's missing some features like a volume wheel and that it's a lot smaller physically, but what's its place in the line up?

Also, and I know this is asked a lot in the past, but I've not seen it in this thread so far. What's the rough guess for the next round of orders? Just ballpark.. Autumn, next year?

Circuit gem is made to fit like a glove inside a modified Sega Dreamcast VMU module. If I had to guess, they will be available again sometime in August/September 2019.

Hey Kite, I just found out this existed a week ago and I'm sorry I missed the pre-order by two months! If there is any extra inventory, I am very interested in the Circuit Sword CM 3, the 640x480 HD LCD adapter, and the alternative back board.
