    I'm in need of LCD displays and touch screens. Either separate or integrated ones. I searched a lot but ended up with some costly ones. Can anyone suggest me companies or models of reasonable ones...?

    Thank you...

    Here is a vid of the Display Ron H linked above being driven by a PIC32 and an AVR 8 bit side by side.

    Keep in mind if you will be redrawing the whole screen often (video replay), 8 bit controllers will give a bit of lag.

    Such a specific question...NOT. How about adding some details that will narrow it down.
    Like...do you need dot/character/STN/TN/7 segment/passive/reflective/transflective/transmissive/backlight color/EL/character size/voltage/number of lines,etc.. and on and on and on.

    Touchscreen..resistive/capacitive/size/interface,etc... on and on..

    Might as well just wrote "Help..LCD..Touchscreen"

    this is new to me and i am looking for loading bitmap images to the touch display which can work on supply less than 12V( not a 7 segment display)
    i need 3 basic size (2"-10")
    i prefer resistive but need a good lifespan.
