    Tablet LCD Screen for Raspberry Pi?

    wxam

      Hello,

      I'm trying to make a portable Raspberry Pi.

      Now i want to make it with an LCD screen. so i found a unused LCD screen from a Asus Tablet.
      But it has a LVDS connection (if i'm right)

       

      Is there a way that i can use this Asus Tablet LCD for my raspberry Pi?
      Please let me know if i need to buy somethings or if it just wont work at all.

      Kind regard,

      Wxam (Matthew)

      (PS: Sorry if the Sentence's are somewhat unclear i'm Dutch)

          Potentially yes, search eBay for LVDS driver boards.

          You'll need the part number from your screen to see if one is available.

           

          Once I finally find my spare screen I'm going the same way  but cost has to  be taken into account. The driver boards are between £5 and £25 if memory serves and the official 7" screen is about £60 ish.

           

          The official screen will denfinately work exactly as advertised, a spare LCD with LVDS driver could  be great or it could be sub-optimal.
