    I would like to replace a VGA moitor with a small LCD screen, 6 inches by 3
    inches or near those measurments.
    Silicon Chip had a place where you can by these for hooking up to the output
    of a VGA output on a computer.
    This is for reading text only, connecting the computer to inatrumention for
    example where only need to read text or numbers etc.

    Dose anyone know where these can be bought in Australia.

    Thanks Craig
  2. With VGA output you'll get graphics as well as text, whatever is
    displayed on your normal VGA monitor. You'll be paying for a graphics
    screen and the associated VGA to LCD driver circuitry.
    Every man and his dog does VGA LCD screens now, industrial computer
    suppliers, local computer stores, guy at the pub etc.
    As far as I am aware you can't get a bare LCD panel with a VGA input
    direct. They either come pre-packaged with the LCD and VGA-LCD driver
    circuitry, or you can get a seperate box to do the conversion. I have
    seen bare LCD panels with the VGA-LCD circuitry tacked on the back
    though, no casing.

  3. Due to the VGA resolution the smallest LCD is 8.4".

    Unless you convert from VGA to Composite video then you
    can go down to 2" LCD's with very very poor resolution.

  4. I've seen VGA screens smaller than 8.4", pixel size can vary.
