a new Newton color screen


Mar 1 2017


When browsing components, I found this LCD screen that looks similar to the Newton MP2x00 module. This nice little display supports color and seems to have a much better contrast. It will probably use much more energy too.

The screen resolution is the same, and the protocols are at least similar. Also, the right border is wider than the original, wich may be needed to fit a different backlight system. I am afraid that the displays are not pin-compatible either.

I don't know if I will ever get around to hooking this module up, but it sure would be interesting to see if it is generally possible.
