I had been wondering for some time how to have a small lcd screen display output from a computer.
Not wanting to buy an LCD screen just for that, and wanting something cheap and small.
The digital photo keyring. (I need more italics! I need a pimp title!) Need lowdown italics for the title!
So, here we go.
Use a cheap digital photoframe as a second display for your PC
And there: hackaday.com
there also: neophob.
More importantly: Wiki. (ST2205u chip)
Keeping thing alive: Openschemes (Our Turn with the AX206 Digital Photo Frames)
There also is a linux CLI (google) (will add link to Url)
Rule of thumb, if the dpf (digital picture frame) appears as cdrom in windows, the hack is not (until further info?) hackable.
If it appears as USB you're ok.
DPF with AppoTech AX203 unsupported.
Wiki DPF with AppoTech AX206
To distinguish from the AX203 types, the rule of thumb (if you are not able to get hold of the USB IDs, shown below) is:
- AX206 based frames are listed with 16 mbit or 32 mbit flash, capable of taking ~107 pictures or more
- Those with 8 mbit and ~130 pictures could be likely AX203
Coby is a brand which comes up.
There is a tool (Dpfmate.exe) which interacts with the DPF. EIther this tool or some code in the Dpf converts your JPG to
I bought one. It is Ax203 I think, anyway appears as cd-rom. :/
My main (other) idea was, if one could use it as a VERY small usb stick. (have a bootloader while retaining original Dpf usage)
Ever dreamed of having a very small usb stick! ? (8mb Btw!) imho, 8MB is well sufficient for an OS.
Why on Reboot.pro
The info on the net is disparate.
Here we have people who know VID /PID, Bootloaders, memory mapping, Hex.
