Hello Freaks,

Been searching for 7" TFT's with touch screen that are connected to a board that take care of the low level driving of the TFT and communicate with a host controller.
The company that sell the board also provide a GUI for PC for fast development.

I find it very hard to google for this.
I'm not looking for ready-made displays to be used in a car or with a PC.
Just the screen and the board underneath, just a tad bigger.

So far I've only found two candidates.
http://www.noritake-itron.com/tft/
http://www.anders.co.uk/displays...

I'm sure there are some more out there...
Suggestions?

or earth lcd?

Well, I've already searched the "normal" suppliers.
Not looking for raw displays or with LVDS driver and such.
Need a display where the development can be done in GUI and then downloaded to the board connected to the TFT.

Can you give more info? Is the tft like a picture frame? Pops up an 800x480 bmp from flash every once in a while?

Well, no...
The screen is for a user interface showing graphs and other data.
Also with touch buttons for navigation.
The two companies I've showed links to offer PC software, somewhat like a compiler/editor and you can control some of the (ARM)pins on the TFT board through software, i.e. serial in/out connected to host processor.
You download .bmp and .fnt files for different screens together with the software that tells the ARM how to behave i.e. if buttons are touched or data comes in.
Take a look at the first Noritake-Itron link for a better description.
The point is to cut down the time needed for development.

Where in my posts do I mention "cheapest" or "lowest cost in universe"?

The quest was for a solution that would cut down development time/cost and time to market.
A bit surprised none of the distinguished freaks seam to have walked down this road already.

You can buy and LCD from 4D systems, they have lcd with built in micro-controller and a specific programming language for standalone ones that you can program and do what you need.

Nice displays.
But...
Where are the 7" TFT's?
My eyes only catch sizes from 0.96"-3.5".
