So I've recently started learning about LCD communication with arduino but I have one question: Devices like PC's and smartphones use very high quality LCD's and if I wanted to use one (not necessarily with arduino) for a project, where could I find one? Whenever I look up 'high quality LCD's' it just comes up with some expensive TV's. Where can I find these kind of LCD's?
Try using search terms such as
- "Arduino color LCD"
- "Arduino Color TFT LCD display"
Alternatively, substitue "OLED" for "LCD" in the searches above. OLED technology is a lower power alternative to LCD. For example, see the micro OLED series, uOLED-96-G2 (Res 96x64), uOLED-128-G2 (128x128) and uOLED-160-G2 (160x128).
At the large end of the scale is the high pixel density ("retina display") 2048x1536 IPS display used in iPad 3's or 4's, the LG LP097QX1. It needs a Qualia driver board, and uses HDMI input, but can be purchased as standalone or in a plastic monitor pack.
