Will the LCD expansion connector be a pin-header/connector or only a set of test points on which users can solder their own wires in case needed?
From the initial picture: http://beagleboard.googlegroups.com/attach/2e82c3ed6061d9d2/Beagle_exp_LCD_RevC.JPG?gda=H2bt6EUAAACmgoNvonPc5qbQ6Ev-XRhNl1WxzKcR5wz-N7NembB3jHQVhVzKDTcmciFORS7UcUyO3f1cykW9hbJ1ju6H3kglGu1iLHeqhw4ZZRj3RjJ_-A&view=1&part=4 I think it looks like a 1.27 mm spaced connector, but could fear that the holes in the pads are too small to mount any real connector in them?
If you tried to install one of these connectors, you will know they are very difficult to solder and the pins are very soft, so they bend really easy. I would have used a ZIF connector, which is far easier to install and if you used the pin layout of the PSP1000 display, you could connect a low cost LCD without the need for an adapter.
Actually, it isn’t that difficult. Use liquid flux and fine solder wick. Apply liquid flux, solder all the pins. Don’t worry about shorts, Use fine solder wick to remove the shorts. Simple.
Unless you are trying to fit this into a specific enclosure. The ZIF solution gives you the flexibility to put the adaptor/LCD/protoboard anywhere you want. Anyway, it sounds to me you are too far along to make a change at this time, so this isn’t really a problem. I will just make a 1.27mm header to ZIP adapter. Simple solution and everyone is happy.
