I got this in a lot of other cards but I'll be damned if I can't tell what this is... it's obviously a screen of some kind and it measures 3.5" by 4". Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Roger

Well looks like a graphic LCD display that isn't too usual. Guessing exactly what it came from might be difficult.

The larger chips on the back look like the usual LCD display driver chips. The smaller chip U4 is an 8Kx8 SRAM. Off the top of my head I don't know if some LCD graphic display driver chips need an external display refresh buffer. Oh, the datasheet for the Toshiba T6963C says it can use an external display memory of up to 64KB.

Allen-Bradley PLC machine controller display?

Yeah, that's a pretty generic 128x128 resolution LCD with a semi-smart philco controller board.

Datasheet here:

Usually they are built for specific devices, the overstock when that device/model is no longer made being dumped into the hobbyist market. Actual programming info on them is often scarce since what trickles down to us are cast offs.

Thank you to those that have responded. One last question, is it worth anything? Does anyone have any interest in it?

Thank you,
Roger

They are worth about $30 new.

Thank you. I'll throw it on eBay for $15... it looks brand new.

Gee, are these old LCD modules worth anything? I've got a carton of new, shrink-wrapped Toshiba Infinia USB modules with a nice display piggy-backed in (it's a Toshiba 5343stldgytn 240x48 display with backlight). One guy's experience with it (https://hardforum.com/threads/is-this-lcd-of-any-use-toshiba-lcd.1488888/).

At any rate, over the years, I've only managed to give a couple away--and this is a unit with a rotary encoder and buttons and even an IR sensor. It's hard for me to see where someone would pay money for a plain PCB.

Must be like old printers--can't give those away either. :)

You're probably right... in the green bin it goes :mad:

Hope this is the right thread to post this. Went through a drawer of old boards and found this guy.

Does anyone have any idea what this board is? It is a PCI board with a Philips SAA chip (TV?) and Zoran ZR36057PCQ chip. Looks like the connectors are SCSI and there is one 15-pin DB15HD male on the board. Video capture board with SCSI?
Sticker says 02935409-00 and BUZ with a date of 02/04/98.

They are still being manufactured and sold (https://www.crystalfontz.com/product/cfag128128ayyhtz-128x128-display-graphic-lcd). Someone must be buying them?

I guess, but a 128x128 OLED is about the same price, so go figure...

Its the controller card for the Iomega BUZ video capture device. Its pretty useless without the breakout box.

Thanks njroadfan. It has been in a drawer for ages. I don't remember ever having the breakout box, or the BUZ. Not sure where it would have come from..... :)
