Hello all!

You probably don't know me, since this is my first post, but I have been lurking the forum for the last couple of months, taking in as much information as I could.

Well, after deciding on building a Sim-tiq, I got myself a 1212-R tablet. It had an ADB connector, but I managed to make a serial pc cable thanks to the diagrams lying around on the forum (thanks Tanassi!).

So, finally, my semester at the university had ended and I coul spend my attention elsewhere, and four days ago I bouht the only 15" full screen monitor I could find in my town!  All models are widescreen now! But I got the LG L1553S, which had a nice enouh image and, although being only 1024x768 (I guess you can't do much more on a 15"), it showed promise having an external power source.

From then on it was practically good news only!

I had no jitter on some preliminary tests by runnin the tablet near the monitor, the monitor ran on 12v, the same as the tablet, which means only one power source!

Disassembled the monitor and ran some tests with the LCD controller on top of the tablet due to cable length. All worked fine but the regions near the LCD controller. Fair enough. So started thinkin about the component layout and about the enclosure for all this, and realised the controller board of the LCD could fit in the pocket in the tablet case, opposite to where the tablet controller is! GOOD!

I just needed to make one extension, which was to one of the lamps of the backlight, and about 3 inches only.

So, stacked everythin together, fter the extension job, and voilá:

Attached here are some pics of the assembled product!

4 days job, no jitter at all.

The mapping was tricky, but now its okay. The only problem I having is some weird behavior near the lamps, but I have no dead spots whatsoever.


I want to thank everyone on the forum for all their info! This forum has been a huge help!

I will post some other pics of the inside layout once i get them organized!

Cheers,
André
