Re: [TCLUG:4158] LCD screens

I found some at

I might get a couple of their 9.4" and the backlit 6.3" ones. 
They are priced at $60 each but I am still searching for an
lcd controller that can drive them. 

I want to try and build a "PDA" that runs linux. 
For the processor I am looking at the ARMs and mips.
Both do not cosume much power and linux runs
on either. 

I am a little short of ideas and am still struggling with
all the electronic stuff. Power consumption, interfaces
batteries and stuff like that. For now I think I will just 
use a battery adapter and work out the power supply details
later, but I have a long way to go. 

I would like a plug and play system and maby have the complete
system "Open Sourced" like the mp3car !

Anybody else interested in working on this ? I have a bit
of time and some money that I can spend on this but need 
help with the hardware.

Serge, let me know how your project is going.
