2048x1536 LCD to USB-C Adapter *NEW*


This adapter allows connecting 2048x1536 "retina" iPad 3/4 (see below for compatibility) LCD panels to PC/Mac/some mobile phones with USB-C/Thunderbolt. It provides switchable panel power, and switchable/dimmable backlight. New board design allows easier mounting behind panel using double-sided foam tape.

NOTE: This ONLY works with USB-C or Thunderbolt ports which have DisplayPort Alternate Mode function available. This is the case on most modern laptops/macbooks, and some newer mobile phones. It DOES work with USB-C port on NVidia RTX20 series cards. This will NOT work with USB-A to USB-C cables (these cannot transmit DisplayPort signals) as well as with some desktops where USB-C is provided by ASMedia PCIe to USB-C controller.

NOTE: FPC connector which attaches the panel to adapter board is VERY fragile. User must be very careful lifting up the connector tab and pushing it back into place. See manual for pictures. Sorry, but any requests regarding broken connector will not be handled. You broke it, you deal with it. Use some strong tape to fix the cable in place.
