I am posting this again, because I cannot find my previous post (neither searching the forums or looking in the "Your posts" in the control panel show it).

I had a question concerning the System Control Pins header, which seems to be a port to install a switch to turn the system on/off. This would be perfect for the power controller which I have in my car. The question is: what is the header part number? (This way I can find the mating connector.)

The other question I had had to do with the eDP connector. Somewhere (whether on these forums or elsewhere) it was noted/claimed that it was a proprietary interface. Is this true? Or would any eDP panel work?

My alpha is due to arrive today.

thanks in advance.
regards,
greg

@All

I had a question concerning the System Control Pins header, which seems to be a port to install a switch to turn the system on/off. This would be perfect for the power controller which I have in my car. The question is: what is the header part number? (This way I can find the mating connector.)

A: It's a JST ph2.0-2p connector.

The other question I had had to do with the eDP connector. Somewhere (whether on these forums or elsewhere) it was noted/claimed that it was a proprietary interface. Is this true? Or would any eDP panel work?

A: not every eDP panel works. you need different driver and eDP panels have different pinout and pin numbers (like 30 pin or 40 pin). We will release our official display. However some community users have testing 3rd display, which works perfectly without any driver change also - https://www.lattepanda.com/topic-f6t17107.html
So...It depends...
Enjoy Tinkering with LattePanda ! :lol:
