Reverse Engineering a 8 INCH LCD Part 2
After careful study of the LCD ribbon cable traces I think i know whats what. But right now i have no means of controlling this big guy. So im ordering a couple S1D13517 and some ram for it… i might use ram off a memory cards i have around tho… save some money.
“The S1D13517 is a color LCD graphics controller which uses an external SDRAM display buffer. The S1D13517
supports an 8/16-bit indirect host interface while providing high performance bandwidth to external SDRAM,
allowing for fast screen updates.
The S1D13517 supports displays up to 960×540 (QHD) @ 24 bpp or 800×600 (SVGA)@ 24bpp, controlling a main
the window and up to two Picture-in-Picture windows. Additionally, the S1D13517 is designed with a 2D Graphics
Engine with Alpha Blending. The S1D13517 uses a double-buffer architecture to prevent any visual tearing during
streaming video screen updates.”
I know for sure this is a 800×600 Pixel LCD and it looks like 8:8:8 RGB interface. I have a datasheet for a similar LCD and will try to see if i can use it to get this one running. I have like 5 of these lcds in stock and if i get them working they will be for sale asap. I plan to order about 100 of these…There will be 2 different prices for these one ONLY LCD and the other with controller board , which will feature the S1D13517 IC. So you will be able to use with PIC, AVR, etc…
So wish me luck!
