Hello everyone,
First of all, I want to say up front that I am an FAE with Future/FAI.
My job is to help companies source components.
I've been following this list for a while now, and thought you might appreciate my
input. This is not my job to promote on the internet. I'm just interested in this list,
and wanted to help out.
Please let me know if you think it is inappropriate on this list, and I'll stop.
1) FAI is set up to handle small quantities of parts like these.
Call 1-800-388-8731 to find your local FAI or Future branch.
or go to Worldwide Branch Locations - FAI

2) This is different from "Future Active Catalog". Which can be used when ordering
single pieces. Future Active Catalog
The catalog is useful for finding inventory etc. Call FAI for better pricing when you
are building more than "one".

3) The part numbers you are looking for are:
G4-EVALKIT - Vitrium G4 designer Kit 1/4VGA
G8-EVALKIT - Vitrium G4 designer Kit 1/4VGA
G325E01R300 - G4 1/4 VGA display (320x240 TF. FSTN COG)
G241D01R000 -G8 1/8VGA (240x160)
(Sorry but I'm not allowed to quote you a price. You have to talk to a sales person.
Don't worry they're friendly!)

4) We have MANY other LCD suppliers, Touch screens backlight inverters etc...
Sharp, NEC, Seiko, Hyundai, Stanley, American Zettler, PowerTIP, Tianma, Dynapro, ELO
If you want I'll look for other good fits or other parts that make up the uCsimm
boards. (like the RS485 trancivers that were talked about.)
