Metal Frame Box for OLinuXino LIME with 7″ LCD is now in stock

LCD7-METAL-FRAME

The LCD 7″ Metal Frame Box is now in stock. We offer it only in black color.

Inside the frame there is space to assembly A10 or A20 OLinuXino LIME or LIME2:

LCD7-METAL-FRAME-2

All connectors of LIME are exposed on two sides on the frame box:

LCD7-METAL-FRAME-3

and from other side:

LCD7-METAL-FRAME-4

Four M4x8 screws hold together the two parts of the LCD frame, the same can be used to attach the frame to any flat surface.

The LCD assembly is easy to do but involves making frame of dual adhesive tape around the LCD to keep the glass off contact with the metal and to attach the touchscreen if necessary.

We offer this assembly as separate service if one do not want to make it himself. Here is the link for the assembly service – it’s orderable item in the web shop.

Please note that before you add LCD7-ASSEMBLY to your order you also have ordered these items: A10 or A20 OLinuXino LIME or LIME2, LCD-OLinuXino-7 or LCD-OLinuXino-7TS, LCD7-METAL-FRAME and CABLE-40-40-10CM otherwise we can’t do the assembly:)

The next logical step is to make Industrial panel. For this purpose we need LIME or LIME2 in industrial temperature grade.

A10/A20 qualify for industrial temperature grade, we also have all other components in this temperature range including the DDR3 memory, but two components preventing us to complete this job: NAND Flash and Ethernet PHY.

We work to solve this and in couple of months we may have in our web shop complete industrial panel solution with LCD, LIME etc in Industrial temperature grade -45+85C .

LCD-OLinuXino-10TS Metal Frame with embedded A20-OLinuXino-LIME prototype is ready

LCD10

The metal frame with LCD-OLinuXino-10TS and A20-OLinuXino-LIME prototype is ready and tested. We will run production next week.

Here is how ti looks at back side:

LCD10-1

Frame size is 250 x 150 mm with 55 mm height at the middle and 25 mm on the second step up.

The 7″ LCD Metal frame is already produced and awit for painting. Next week we will add it on the web.

The metal frames will be pained only in black color by default.

The Metal Linux Computer – The first LCD industrial panel prototypes are ready

LCD9

What you see is our first sample of the metal frame for 7″ LCD with build-in A20-OLinuXino-LIME inside!

Our mechanical designer is getting better and better after the design of A20-OLinuXino-MICRO and A20-OLinuXino-LIME boxes. The box for MICRO was done after three attempts, the LIME box was done right from the second attempt, now the LCD box got perfect from the very first attempt!

The metal frame is done by three parts:

LCD1

Here above you see two parts, which connect together with single screw. Why this is necessary – LIME has connectors on both ends and it’s not possible to fit inside as the connectors go outside PCB borders

LCD2

this is the third part it’s bend to hold inside the touch panel and LCD:

LCD3

here is the frame with LCD and touchscreen in it:

LCD4

the LIME is attached to back panel with one screw on metal spacer, the left side connectors show outside a bit:

LCD5

then we attach the right side panel and screw them together:

LCD6

then the LCD part is snap to the other two and fixed with 4 screws:

LCD7

here is how it looks on the back side:

LCD8

the same four mount holes can be used the metal panel to be assembled to other surface there are provisional mount holes on the back side as well.

The whole construction is solid and reliable. The frame dimensions are: 190 x 102 mm the higher back side is 40 mm the lower side is 10 mm thick.

This whole frame have approx same size as MODEL-B box and have just few more bendings so the price I expect is to be same as on MODEL-B box i.e. about EUR 15.00

This means 7″ LCD panel with A20-OLinuXino with the metal frame will cost from EUR 81.00 and if TOUCH screen is add from EUR 89.00

MOD-LCD3310 OSHW monochrome LCD 84×48 pixels board with UEXT connector

MOD-LCD3310

MOD-LCD3310 is Open Source Hardware board released under Apache 2.0 Licensee.
It’s low cost 84×48 pixels LCD which can connect to any of our development boards with UEXT connectors.
The schematic in PDF format and Board and Schematic files in Eagle CAD format are on GitHub.

Examples how to connect MOD-LCD3310 to OLIMEXINO-32U4 (Arduino Leonardo), OLIMEXINO-STM32 (Maple), PIC32-PINGUINO (Pinguino), A20-OLinuXino-MICRO, LPC-P1227 (NXP) and STM32-P103 (ST) are on GitHub.

The LCD panel alone is also available for purchase on our web shop

LCD3310-1

backlight panel

NOKIA3310-BACKLIGHT-2

and the matching connector

LCD3310-CON

which you can use to make your own PCBs with this display for your next project.

New Set of LCDs in stock for OLinuXino now directly support LIME and LIME2 connectors

LCD-OLinuXino-15-1

We have now in stock 7 new LCDs with driver circuit which support 40 pin 0.1″ connectors like these for A13-OLinuXino, A13-OLinuXino-MICRO, A20-OLinuXino-MICRO, but also have LIME and LIME2 compatible 40 pin 0.05″ connectors.

You can see all of them here.

The 15.6″ LCDs now include Full HD 1920x1080p display.

New Product in stock: A10-OLinuXino-LIME-UEXT adapter

Image

A10-OLinuXino-LIME-UEXT is adapter board with Male connector on 0.05″ which can connect to A10-OLinuXino-LIME GPIOs with  0.05″ step ribbon CABLE-40-40-10CM and allow LIME GPIOs to be used with BREADBOARD-1, or with A13-LCD43TS, A13-LCD7TS or A13-LCD10TS.

For the moment A20-LCD15.6 is not supported as LVDS signals got noisy when pass through A10-OLinuXino-LIME-UEXT but we are looking for solution.

UEXT signals can be used only when connected to GPIO1. On the other connectors UEXT signals will be not present.

New Product in stock: Monster LVDS 15.6″ LCD for A20-OLinuXino
