Is there pressure sensitivity?

No problem, sorry i wasn't able to reply the past few days. To answer the previous question - i've never heard of anyone using a soundcard, the old ones have a MIDI/Joystick port but i'm not sure if it can be used as a serial port.

I've looked at those Sympodium tablets before, even started a thread here awhile back. From what i've read they're a bit problematic to deal with - physically it's a Wacom DTF tablet, but the Hardware ID in the firmware is different, so the Wacom driver can't recognize it. It only works with the Sympodium driver which they say is pretty bad, but i haven't had any experience with it. I believe it works well on Linux except for the special function buttons on the bezel. I've been tempted to get one to play with since its only 15$ but shipping costs to my country and import charges make it unreasonably expensive.

I have found a small working motherboard with a serial port! I will try to get the correct voltage and make a serial cable to connect to it. I think I already know the pinout..

Pesho how about one of these? https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA6706X93506&cm_re=serial_to_usb-_-9SIA6706X93506-_-Product


I would just mod the cable a little so it could connect to the digitizer!

Also I think I want to try USB so what would the pinout be from the tc4400 to usb?

Thanks

NO, use this - https://www.ebay.com/itm/FT232RL-3-3V-5-5V-FTDI-USB-to-TTL-Serial-Adapter-Module-for-Arduino-Mini-Port-/381374421597

It has a jumper for selecting 3.3v, i've tested it. Are you planning to use it on Linux? Because i already said this method will not work on Windows. Even on Linux there is some set up involved where you need to make a startup script to initialize the tablet on the correct usbTTY port at startup, it's not "plug and play".

Also read what i wrote in my previous message - digitizers are either USB or Serial, not both. USB versions are rare, and the TC4400 is serial.

I strongly advise you to just get a chinese Teensy for 12$ and solder a 3.3v regulator on it.

So this would technically work? I do not mind using linux  Grin

Also I could work out something for the 3.3v

As i already mentioned here, only in Linux. Also the page doesn't mention whether it's 5V or 3.3V. The digitizer works only with 3.3V.

Would one of these serial to usb ttl things work? I think that I have heard that these work somehow  https://www.walmart.com/ip/1PC-USB-To-TTL-Debug-Serial-Port-Cable-For-3B-2B-COM-Port/683054955

The pinout for the TC4400's digitizer is the same, i actually have one here and have tested it. It's the same for all 14pin serial digitizers, there are some that support USB directly but they are pretty rare. You can find the full info HERE.

Yeah, the digitizer just sticks on the back, but i think the TC4400's screen is one of the best screens you can get for that size and format. It's AFFS so viewing angles are very good (important for a screen you'll be looking at from all sides). They don't make 12.1'' desktop monitors so i'm guessing whatever you use is going to be the wrong size. You're also going to have to mess about installing protective glass so it can be used with a pen - regular monitors don't have it, while the TC4400 screen does. An LVDS controller is 20-35$, it's not that expensive...
