Drive LVDS lcd off Alpha eDP port?

Hello, This is more of a generic LCD interface question but I haven’t found any helpful posts online. Is it possible to drive an LVDS lcd panel off of the Alpha eDP interface? I’m working on a laptop conversion, and I found a great LVDS panel that fits in to the case. It came with an inverter and HD...

Re: LattePanda Alpha 864 3D Model and Pinout

Does anybody have a suggestion for a plug-n-play battery that is smaller than the Cubi one mentioned in this thread? I have tried various search terms on AliExpress with no luck (things like "7.4V Li-PO accumulator battery"). The Cubi battery is quite large - 20cm x 20cm; I'd like something closer t...

Obtaining the right graphics driver

Hello, I have just completed a clean Win 10 install on a LP 4gb. Installed the drivers from LP github - I have working Wifi and BT. Whatever I try, I can't get higher display resolution than 1024x600. Surely this isn't the highest resolution I can achieve? Is the LP provided driver on github suppose...

Can lattepanda run a 4k monitor?

Hello, I have connected my LP 4gb to a 4k monitor. I am using win10 pro, activated. My LP works fine on my 720p TV via HDMI. However, the max I can set the resolution to on display settings in win10 is 1080p. Can LP run 4k natively on a monitor? If so, I must have an incorrectly installed graphics d...

Any interest in a battery pack?

Hello, I was wondering if there was any interest in a LiFePo4 18650-based battery that could serve as a UPS for the LP? The idea would be to build a battery holder that accepts a micro-usb input for charging and has a 2-pin output for powering the LP via the CN2 headers. So, the flow of power would ...
