The Hitachi TX31D24VC1CAA



Jan 1, 1970
i recently purchased a cheap Compaq Armada 7730MT laptop, realized
it's nothin but a compact electronics goldmine, and found that the lcd
is a Hitachi TX31D24VC1CAA. it is colour, SVGA, and it features about
a .3 or less dot pitch. n e way, i dloaded (thankfully!) the datasheet
for it, but because of my lacking in electrical engineering skills at
my age, i need assistance finding an affordable way of testing this
doohickey! now, i did see an interface for this kinda thing, but one
must order it from somewhere in Europe, and it CERTAINLY ain't gonna
be cheap!!! i DO know of some parallel port interfaces one may use
when interfacing with an alphaneumeric HD44780 chip-based LCD. how
does one interface a digital 6 bit RGB based matrix LCD? if it'll
help, the screen is SVGA TFT. i can email someone the datasheet if it
is needed. oh, and before i forget, i purchased an old Toshiba T1600,
parts only, and found that i've also got a TLX-1401-G3B LCD (mono). it
is based on the MB654824 controller, i believe. thanx in advance.
