As you can see in the slider above FlorianH got a PSP screen up and running with his DE0-Nano FPGA board. the screen is a cheap Sharp LQ043 which is a 4.3″ true color TFT display and FlorianH has long wanted to use it for something and finally got it hooked up to his FPGA board.
FlorianH did a great job on designing a breakout board which has some traces that are less than 10 mils thick to connect the FPGA to the screen but the hardest part of the process was to Solder the backlight connectors of the screen onto the board:
“By far the trickiest part is soldering the backlight connector onto the board. But with a little caution it’s actually quite easy. I did it the hard way with a small tipped soldering iron. When I ordered the parts I had anticipated some trouble with these connectors so I ordered 3 of them to be safe and I did in fact destroy one of them in the process.”
He also wrote a very nice documentation and shared so many pictures to expalain everything and he added a price table for all the components that he used for the project.
