Controller Board for building external monitor from 4k Panel
« on: October 21, 2016, 02:58:53 pm »
Hey All! First post and I can't find answers anywhere. I found this forum and it looked like the right place!

I watched a YouTube video from DIY Perks about building an external monitor from an old laptop panel. I wanted to step it up as I have a dead All-In-One with a 4k screen that I wanted to try it with. The screen is an LTM236FL01, spec sheet here:

http://www.panelook.com/LTM236FL01_Samsung_23.6_LCM_parameter_24447.html

So here's the ask. Where do I get a controller board for it? I have searched high and low and can't figure this out. Can I get just any board that can run a 4k panel? I'm doing the same thing with a 15.6" 1080p screen from an old laptop and it's a piece of cake. Any insight is welcome!

Thanks!

Its and eDP interface, so a cable and something akin to this:

Basically, its a pwm signal and a couple connectors to go from displayPort/mini display port to the panel connector/cable and its done.

Thanks for the responses.

Two of the options are all in Chinese, which I'd prefer to not have to deal with if possible.

For the other options, they list the supported resolution as 2048x1536. Will they go all the way up to 3840x2160? Or do I have to find specific boards for that? What should I search for? Just a 4k edp controller board?

Really looking forward to getting this up and running so thanks for all the help!
