Display for Gadgeteer


#1

Hi,

Does someone knows where I can find a display 4x3 centimeters and with 240x190p pixels? This display has to be connect with a Spider Gadgeteer mainboard.

Thanks

Dick

That is an odd resolution. Why did you select it?

My customer wanted a Gameboy like screen…

You can hire GHI to find you one. I can tell you that sourcing good displays is not easy.

If interested then please email GHI directly.

Just a quick google of “240x190 Graphic LCD” yields several options.

http://www.displaytech-us.com/240x128-graphic-displays-l isn’t a perfect match but it’s close, and I’m sure a bit more investigation would turn up the LCD you need.

Or you could always [italic]emulate[/italic] the look of the original GameBoy screen on a more current screen by color shifting and scaling images.

Heck you could even just get a GameBoy for like $6
