Here is a non connected look of the SSD1963 breakout so far. Has changeable OSC settings and will breakout almost every pin!
Edit: Changed R2 to be of Variable type for variable Boost!(vr1)
Here is a Routed version. This is all hand routed. No AUTO ROUTE crap!
It will cost me $30.78 to get 3 of these PCBs! Expensive! Thats $10.26 for each PCB no parts or labor included. Imaging the $18 IC that goes on it.. lol that $28 not including shipping. Ill have to source the SSD1963 from china or something… i saw it at a supplier for $10 but i have to buy 10 pieces… so thats $100 for 10 ICs
Then add $30.78 * 3 (3 sets of 3 PCBS) = $192.34 for 9 PCBs and 10 SSD1983 Then i need 9 connectors for each 40 pin and 4 pin. Thats another $10, Misc parts is about $5 then shipping… So i put it at costing me $240-$250 to make 9-10 Fully populated boards! OMG im not rich! heh so that means if i make 9 Boards … to make my money back i have to sell them for $27.78.. to make profit i have to sell them for more…
So if you see these at my store for $35 you now have a good understanding. Also Linas gave me a link to one:
Its from Newhaven Display, its $35… so why buy mines? Well here are just a couple of reasons:
1) Mines is open source… always know what to replace if anything happens.
2) Mines has a variable power supply for powering different LED back light voltages.
3) Mines will be purple with gold plated goodness.
4) Mines has a THROUGH HOLE (0.1″ aka 2.54mm) breakout which means easier to test any LCD and any MCU.
5) Made in the USA.. (Only main SSD IC is from china)
6) Helps support more of my work which in turn helps all.
NOTE: I have to add the transistor for backlight control 🙂
