guidelines for installation and preparation of a finished display solution.
Preparation: Before proceeding it is important to familiarize yourself with the parts making up the system and the various
connectors, mounting holes and general layout of the controller. As much as possible connectors have been labeled. Guides
to connectors and mounting holes are shown in the following relevant sections.
1.
LCD Panel: This controller is designed for typical LVDS interface TFT panels with panel voltage 3.3V or 5V or 12V or 18V
LVDS interface. Due to the variation between manufacturers of signal timing and other panel characteristics factory setup
and confirmation should be obtained before connecting to a panel. (NOTE: Check panel power jumper settings before
connection)
2.
Controller card: Handle the controller card with care as static charge may damage electronic components.
3.
LVDS signal cable : In order to provide a clean signal it is recommended that LVDS signal cables are no longer than
46cm (18 inches). If loose wire cabling is utilized these can be made into a harness with cable ties. Care should be taken
when placing the cables to avoid signal interference. Additionally it may be necessary in some systems to add ferrite cores
to the cables to minimize signal noise.
4.
Inverter: This will be required for the backlight of an LCD, some LCD panels have an inverter built in. As panels may have
1 or more backlight tubes and the power requirements for different panel models backlights may vary it is important to
match the inverter in order to obtain optimum performance. See page 15 for the Application notes “Inverter connection
section for more informations.
5.
Inverter Cables: Different inverter models require different cables and different pin assignment. Make sure correct cable
pin out to match the inverter. Using wrong cable pin out may damage the inverter.
6.
OSD switch mount controls: The following section discusses the controls required and the section on connectors
provides the detail. The controls are minimal: On/Off, Backlight Brightness (depends on inverter), OSD (5 momentary
buttons) analog VR type or (8 momentary buttons) digital type.
7.
OSD switch mount controls cable: The cables to the function switches should be of suitable quality and length so that
impedance does not affect performance. Generally lengths up to 1 metre (3 feet) should be acceptable.
8.
Controller status LED (Optional) : This LED indicates the controller status. The pin direction of the LED should be
corrected for right colour indication. Red colour stands for standby. Green colours stands for signal on. The status LED
is an optional part only, can be unconnected.

definition.
11. RS-232 control interface : Firmware upgrade and serial control via this interface port. See Appendix II for the RS-232
serial control protocols.
12. Analog VGA Input Cable: As this may affect regulatory emission test results and the quality of the signal to the controller,
a suitably shielded cable should be utilized. This port support DDC/CI (See Appendix III in details).
13. HDMI input : Support HDMI 1.3 input up to 1080p/WUXGA resolution. Plug the HDMI cable to the connector P3 on
the controller board. This port support DDC/CI (See Appendix III in details).
14. Display Port Cable : Support single-link Display Port 1.1a. Plug the Display Port cable to the connector P4 on
the controller board. This port support DDC/CI (See Appendix III in details).
15. Audio Jack (Stereo) output from HDMI / Display Port : This port support Stereo audio output from the HDMI / Display
Port audio source inputted. This port has the same audio path output from CN1. It requires to select the audio port “Speakers”
via OSD menu under “Sound” > “Output” OSD menu page.
Page 4 of 36
16. Audio output (Stereo) with amplication from HDMI / Display Port : This port support Stereo audio output from the HDMI
/ Display Port audio source inputted. This port has the same audio path output from J1. It requires to select the audio port
“Speakers” via OSD menu under “Sound” > “Output” OSD menu page.
Start from P/N 417270020-3 or up version, the board supports disable speaker out(CN1) while stereo jack(J1) being
plugged.
17. SPDIF Audio output : This port support SPDIF audio output from the HDMI / Display Port audio source inputted. It
requires to select the audio port “SPDIF” via OSD menu under “Sound” > “Output” OSD menu page.
18. Backlight status input : It only functions when connecting with the panel which support backlight status detection pin.
19. Power Input: 12V / 24V DC is required, this should be a regulated supply. Although the controller provides power
regulation for the LCD power this does not relate to the power supplied to the backlight inverter. If an unregulated power supply
is provided to an inverter any fluctuations in power may affect operation, performance and lifetime of the inverter and or
backlight tubes. 24VDC input is required when the panel output voltage is 18VDC. Please refer to page 11-12 for proper jumper
settings.
•
Power Safety: Note that although only 12VDC / 24VDC is supplied as ‘power-in’ a backlight inverter for panel backlighting
produces significantly higher voltages (the inverter does not connect to the ground plane). We strongly advise appropriate
insulation for all circuitry.
•
EMI: Shielding will be required for passing certain regulatory emissions tests. Also the choice of external Controller to PC
signal cable can affect the result.
•
Ground: The various PCB mounting holes are connected to the ground plane.
•
Servicing: The board is not user serviceable or repairable. Warranty does not cover user error in connecting up to the
controller and is invalidated by unauthorized modification or repairs.
•
Controller Mounting: It is recommended that a clearance of at least 10mm is provided above and 5mm below the
controller when mounted. Additionally consideration should be given to:
•
Electrical insulation.
•
Grounding.
•
EMI shielding.
•
Cable management. Note: It is important to keep panel signal cables apart from the inverter & backlight cables to
prevent signal interference.
•
Heat & Ventilation: Heat generated from other sources, for example the backlight of a very high brightness panel may
generate significant heat which could adversely affect the controller.
•
Other issues that may affect safety or performance.
•
PC Graphics Output: A few guidelines:
•
Signal quality is very important, if there is noise or instability in the PC graphics output this may result in visible noise
on the display.
•
Refer to graphics modes table in specifications section for supported modes.
•
Non-interlaced & interlaced video input is acceptable.
IMPORTANT: Please read the Application Notes section for more information.

CONTROLLER DIMENSIONS
The maximum thickness of the controller is 15.8mm (measured from bottom of PCB to top of components, including
any underside components & leads). We recommend clearances of:
•
5mm from bottom of PCB - if mounting on a metal plate we also recommend a layer of suitable insulation
material is added to the mounting plate surface.
•
10mm above the components
•
3~5mm around the edges
Any of the holes shown above can be used for mounting the PCB, they are 3.2mm in diameter.
CAUTION: Ensure adequate insulation is provided for all areas of the PCB with special attention to high
voltage parts such as the inverter.
Page 19 of 36
APPLICATION NOTES
USING THE CONTROLLER WITHOUT BUTTONS ATTACHED
This is very straightforward by following the steps below :
•
Firstly setup the controller/display system with the buttons. With controls attached and display system active make any
settings for colour and image position as required then switch everything off.
•
Use a jumper to close JP6 jumper, this will fix the board On.
•
Refer to inverter specifications for details as to fixing brightness to a desired level, this may require a resistor, an open
circuit or closed circuit depending on inverter.
INVERTER CONNECTION
There are potentially 3 issues to consider with inverter connection:
•
Power
•
Enable
•
Brightness
Please read the following sections for a guide to these issues.
Inverter Power: As per the table for CNB1 pin 1 is ground and pin 2 provides DC12V/ 24V DC . This should be matched with
the inverter specification: see table.
CNB1
PIN
DESCRIPTION

Ground
2
+12VDC / 24VDC
Remark: For higher power inverter, more current (for 12V / 24V) can be taken from CNA1 pin 1.
Maximum current drawn on CNA1 pin 1 and CNB1 pin 2 is 3A (24V) / 3A(12V)
Enable: This is a pin provided on some inverters for On/Off function and is used by this panel controller for VESA DPMS
compliance. If the inverter does not have an enable pin or the enable pin is not used then DPMS will not be operational. Pin 3
should be matched to the inverters specification for the ‘enable’ or ‘disable’ pin.
CNB1
PIN

DESCRIPTION
Enable
Further, jumpers JB2 & JB3 should be set to match the inverters specification for the enable pin power and High or Low setting:
see table.
Ref
JB2
JB3
Purpose
Inverter enable voltage
Inverter control
Note
1-2 H = 3.3V, 2-3 H = 5V (Vcc), OPEN H = open collector
1-2 H = On, 2-3 L = On
Brightness: There are various methods for brightness control and it is important to consider the specifications for the inverter to
be used. Generally the situation is:
•
Brightness can controlled by using a resistor or VR (Variable Resistor).
•
Brightness controlled by adding a circuit such as PWM (Pulse Width Modulation).
•
No adjustment of brightness is possible.
CNB1 pins 4 & 5 are available for connecting to an inverter or circuit where VR control is supported.

This can then be matched with function controls (OSD switch mount) pins 3 & 4: see cable design below .
Page 20 of 36
Design Guideline for making VR circuitry :
Signal description / Notes :
1) R1 : 470ohm on board
2) RPOT is an external potentiometer (in-line dip
style) that can be plugged directly into CNC1 pins
3,4,5. RPOT must be supplied / installed by user.
3) BVR_B : Voltage tapped from “top” of
potentiometer, the node of R1 and RPOT.
4) BVR_WIP : Voltage tapped from wiper arm of
RPOT.
5) BVR_A : Voltage tapped from “bottom” of
RPOT.
Note : BVR_A voltage is left floating on the
controller board. To use this circuit, you need
to tie this point to a potential (usually GND,
available at CNC1 pin 6).

The VR for brightness depends on the inverter. The main power load for On/Off is handled by a relay on the controller.
Example for circuit design :
1.)Choose RPOT = 10K
2.) Tie BVR_A to GND
3.) Circuit analysis gives BVR_WIP as the
following (see Figure 1)
BVR_WIP = 5 x (Rbc/10.47)
where BVR_WIP is in Volts.
And Rbc is the resistance from the wiper arm
to bottom of pot in Kohms.
To evaluate, plug in different values of Rbc :
Rbc
0
2.5 K
5K
7.5 K
10 K
BVR_WIP
0V
1.2 V
2.4 V
3.6 V
4.8 V
So this circuit could provide Brightness
adjust voltage ranging from 0V to 5V.

TROUBLESHOOTING
General
A general guide to troubleshooting a flat panel display system it is worth considering the system as separate elements, such as:
¾ Controller (jumpers, PC settings)
¾ Panel (controller, cabling, connection, panel, PC settings)
¾ Backlight (inverter, cabling, backlight tubes)
¾ Cabling
¾ Computer system (display settings, operating system)
Through step by step cross checking with instruction manuals and a process of elimination to isolate the problem it is usually
possible to clearly identify the problem area.
No image:
¾ If the panel backlight is not working it may still be possible to just see some image on the display.
¾ A lack of image is most likely to be caused by incorrect connection, lack of power, failure to provide a signal or incorrect
graphic card settings.
Image position:
If it is impossible to position the image correctly, ie the image adjustment controls will not move the image far enough, then test
using another graphics card. This situation can occur with a custom graphics card that is not close to standard timings or if
something is in the graphics line that may be affecting the signal such as a signal splitter (please note that normally a signal
splitter will not have any adverse effect).
Image appearance:
¾ A faulty panel can have blank lines, failed sections, flickering or flashing display
¾ Incorrect graphics card refresh rate, resolution or interlaced mode will probably cause the image to be the wrong size, to
scroll, flicker badly or possibly even no image.
¾ Incorrect jumper settings on the controller may cause everything from total failure to incorrect image. CAUTION: Do not set
the panel power input incorrectly.
¾ Sparkling on the display: faulty panel signal cable.
Backlight:
Items to check include: Power input, Controls, Inverter and Tubes generally in this order.
If half the screen is dimmer than the other half:
¾ Check cabling for the inverter.
¾ For a specific backlight tube check the AC pins orientation (CAUTION: Never reverse any DC power pins).
Also:
¾ If adjusting brightness control has no effect the chances are that the VR rating or method of adjusting brightness is not
compatible or correctly connected to the inverter.
¾ If system does not power down when there is a loss of signal
Continued failure:
If unit after unit keeps failing consider and investigate whether you are short circuiting the equipment or doing something else
seriously wrong.
Generally after common sense issues have been resolved we recommend step by step substitution of known working parts to
isolate the problem.

Appendix V – Auto Color Gain
The Auto Color Gain function is supported in the ARGB mode only and is designed to
calibrate the controller to the incoming video signal. In order to calibrate correctly, the display must be
displaying an image containing both black and white data (see illustration below) when the function is
used. The internal processor of the video controller chip will then execute a process to adjust the
relative values of the RGB signals to achieve the best performance. The parameters of the corrected
RGB values are then stored in the controller and are unaffected by the Reset Factory Defaults
function.
Warning - If the Auto Color Gain is executed without an appropriate image being displayed, then the
process will set incorrect values and the display colors will be distorted. If this occurs, then it can
either be corrected by performing the process correctly or if this is not possible then the Reset Color
Gain function can be used. This function will reset the stored RGB values to a set of approximate
values.
