The above picture illustrates the typical cable connections.
- Animal LVDS Mini Board - this board uses a standard 0.1" x 0.1" pitch 40-pin connector as it's output interface. It will interface to standard 40-pin ribbon cables (i.e. 40-pin IDE cables).
- 40-pin Ribbon Cable - the length of this cable can be varied from 1" to 36" (we have tested cables up to 36" in length).
- LVDS 20455 Adapter - this board simply converts the 40-pin ribbon cable to a standard 40-pin LVDS surface mount connector (I-PEX p/n: 20455-040E-12).
- LVDS Cable Assembly - this LVDS cable assembly length is 6". We intentionally kept this cable short to keep the cost down. You can use longer LVDS cable assemblies without any problem.
- LVDS LCD - standard LVDS LCD's (i.e. Pixel Qi 10.1" PQ3Qi-01 or 10.1" Chunghwa CLAA101NB01)
