For a few years now I have wanted to turn my old 15in laptop LCDs into usable monitors.

I am in the process of trying to find one that will run my 1600x1200 LTM15C166B (purchased a board from NJYTouch but so far no luck. Might try her reprogrammable one and hope one of the files matches). This seems like it might be doable, however the real problem seem to be the 2048x1536 IAQX10S I bought for my old laptop but never used due to BIOS incompatibility.

I recently came across the 'AP-CTRL-DVI-QXGA' from (now defunct) aglientpixel.com (still viewable at http://72.167.20.227/product.php?id_product=112). If only I had known of that site back in 2009... :'(

...Anyway, anyone know of a controller capable of handling this massive resolution? The ones I have come across do a maximum of 1600x1200 (although usually cater for the widescreen market nowadays, and none makes these ultra hires monitors anymore... :'() let alone have the onboard memory to handle QXGA.

I'd also be willing to buy someone's used aglientpixel board if at all possible...

EDIT: I tried emailing Chen Ling's (agilentpixel) email address listed on http://wiki.bongofish.co.uk/doku.php?id=bongofish:lvdsvendors but it bounced back with "mailbox unavailable".

AgilentPixel does not seem to be in business anymore.  http://forum.bongofish.co.uk/index.php?topic=2047.0 

For those higher resolution boards, maybe you can try to find "DIY Projector" sites? (Agilent Pixel was one of them) -- they typically sell higher-end boards (with HDMI and all that).

Try emailing NJYTouch and tell her about your problem, she might be able to help finding a solution.

I am also looking for such a controller, I tried the usual places but no luck so far. I'm planning a intuos3 conversion soon and can get panels easily enough in QXGA, its just the controller holding me back.

If anyone has the agilentpixel board, any chance you could photograph it / report back if there are any tell-tale signs who made it? Hell a photo of what chips are on-board would be nice at this stage.

These guys mention QXGA resolution support on their website, but not in the listed product pdfs. I havent bothered contacting them yet, as they complain about not taking single unit orders on the contact form.

EDIT:
also these guys do a part for 2560x1600, but i get the feeling its specific to the 3 panels listed. Posting here incase anyone is interested (30" panels to match are around £300 online).

Hi guys!

Any news on this one - anyone who makes a QXGA LCD controller preferably where one can input VGA directly or via a passive converter? Any idea of the chipset used on that unit?

Thanks!

send an email to the usual suspects: http://wiki.bongofish.co.uk/doku.php?id=bongofish:lvdsvendors

EDIT: ah sorry, I thought you meant QVGA (really small).  Hum, I did not hear anything yet, but maybe the vendors have something new.
