Some time ago I was going to use 6 of the Newhaven 5" LCD;'s to create a clock but the cost was too high at the time.
SO… I redesigned this using the smaller 4.3" high brightness displays. The PCB design is done and I will link them together and use CAN bus as the protocol between them for synchronisation. The design is based on the G120 modules.
I’ve included an S socket so I can connect a WiFi Gadgeteer module to one of the boards to give me network access.
The attached picture shows the PCB design with a single front panel. The final one will have a solid panel about 520mm long that will house all 6.
I also plan to use this same panel to make a door bell and monitoring system using a USB camera. It will send images to a mobile phone if the home is unoccupied.
I’ve been pointed to them a few times but I can never find a 5" or 7" with capacitive touch, at least not with the same brightness level. They also don’t have a high brightness 4.3" anywhere near the Newhaven option.
