Hello friends,

many e-shops are selling Graphical LCD displays with integrated controller but it seems to me that they are still too much expensive (30-40$ for a simple 128x64). I'm looking for low cost LCD with integrated controller (with basic commands) starting from 128x64 pixels and backlight.

Do you know a good LCD brand and a place where it is possible to buy some display (with standard or not standard controller) at low cost?

Thank you for your help

Check the flea market in your area for some POS terminals. Many have a graphic LCD, and can be found for a ridiculous price.

I would go down to a surplus store. You can usually find them for a few bucks. I can pick up a laptop LCD display for about 10.00 CAN

The mobile phone displays from nokia seams to be a choice if you only ned a smaller one, Nokia 3310 graphic LCD (84*48 pixel).

I searched a bit and the cheapest place I found to buy them was at the YAMPP web shop, check Misc. Parts...

Any one know of a cheaper place?

nokia 3310 LCD is $2.5-$3 here (84x48 resolution with SPI like interface 3V3)

Ericsson R320 LCD is $6. It is 10? x 64 pixel. It has similar controller with 3310 LCD.

I make a simple waveform display up to 25kHz with PIC. (A simple 0-5V level oscilloscope with in-PIC trigger algorithm) I plan to do implement it with a faster (>40MSPS ADC , Xilinx CPLD and 12ns RAM and PIC for displaying)

I also bought an 128x128 LCD from ebay €10...
Waiting for it to play with it...

Why not to use the new Xilinx Spartan3? Internal BlockRAM is fast enough to be used as storage for samples, and logical part can be used to implement simple uC to control LCD. Also, quite sofisticated triggering events can be easy programmed. I know, that X3S200 can be bought for less than 19$.

Using single/bigger chip is a good idea. I already implemented parts of this design seperately, all I have to is combine them... If I would make this as a commercial device, I would use Spartan...
