Hello.

I thought I would start a new thread for the adaptor board being talked about in the other thread, now that I have one working.

















All functions work. LCD(naturally), touch and SD card have all been tested and work fine. The adaptor board is setup for 16-bit parallel bus to the 1963, but the E100 only uses 8-bit mode. The point being that you SHOULD be able to use this adaptor on matherp's MMx and the ARMmite which I think use a 16-bit parallel LCD bus.

I might have to get a few more of these 9" LCD's....

Anyone who wants the adaptor boards, I will be adding them to the website tomorrow, and you can order there. They will be US$6.50 each INCLUDING airmail postage to anywhere on the planet. I wanted to make them $5, but NZ post recently put up the price of international airmail.

$7.50.

I decided to include the pin-strips and female SIL headers so you have all you need to build it up as a complete adaptor, so that increased the price by one buck.

You have a choice of 7", 8" or 9". They can all be had from BuyDisplay, but the 9" one I got was from this link.

Be sure to select the correct options:

- Pin Header 8080 interface
- Power Supply 5v
- 9" touch panel with controller
- Pin Header micro SD card interface
- No font chip (just leave it saying ---PLEASE SELECT---)







As they are a big TFT, the freight is reasonably expensive, but you could make them much more affordable if you were to buy more then one, then you would still only pay one DHL cost.

Once you get the display, be sure to remove the solder-blob from J4, and put it on J3(leaving J4 open), so that the display will work with SSD1963 backlight control. They come preset for 8080 interface as ordered, so you don't need to change blobs R3 and R4. But the backlight blob had me scratching my head in the other thread, as I forgot to set it, then the display was just blank.

That has me confused.
Mine came with J4 shorted and J3 open. According to the manual, this is correct for SSD1963 backlight control.
Haven't fired it up yet.
Time will tell and I am glad that it's an easy blob instead of a pesky resistor.

Interesting. My PDF says the exact opposite!





Note how my PDF says J3 short, J4 open for 1963 backlight.....

What I can confirm, is that I have J3 short, and J4 open, and it works.
J4 was short when I got the display. Typo in the manual, I expect, one that they appear to have corrected.

Oh good!
It would be boring to have a consistent source of information.
My datasheet came from buydisplay.com and is Rev 1.0 dated Jun 18, 2015

Mine is ALSO version 1.0, but dated Apr-18 2015.

Technically, YOUR manual is the more up to date one!

Good thinking.

Sold out!

That was fast.

I did not think that many people would have the ER displays.
Still available on back-order. I will order more PCB's!
