    My robotics project requires the use of 5.6inch display, and a powerful board. The UDOO fulfills the processing power that I need, but doesn't seem to support 5.6" display out-of-the-box.

    The UDOO supports LVDS signaling.

    Question 1: Does the UDOO also support TTL signaling? and should I choose LVDS over TTL anyway?

    Question 2: What is the protocol used by the UDOO over LVDS header? i.e. DSI, TFT parallel RGB, MIPI ... ? (please feel free to correct my understanding)

    Question 3: What should I look at on the display specs to make sure that it will be compatible with the UDOO?

    Question 4: For my project, I need to adapt a 5.6" display. Would anyone be able to recommend or simply point at possible working displays?

    Question 5: Here the TFT LCD display that I'd need to stick to (if I don't find better) http://www.panelook.com/AT056TN53 V.1_Innolux_5.6_LCM_overview_1525.html (1ch 16bit Parallel RGB). Will I be able to have it work with the UDOO and what would I need to do?

    The specs of the current 5.6" that I'd need to work with if no better alternative http://www.bdtic.com/DataSheet/Innolux/AT056TN53-V1.pdf

    (I am not a embedded systems engineer, but I am learning everyday, I hope the questions are legit!)

    Any help is most welcome,

    Hi joelmar and welcome :p
    Questions are legit and welcome too :D
    1) UDOO doesn't support TTL, so you should go for LVDS.
    2-3) I'm not sure about the answer. I think you better take a look at i.MX6 manual (http://bit.ly/1FpSWSb), probably around page n° 452.
    4-5) the only displays that work out-of-the-box through the LVDS connector are the SECO displays, like this one (http://bit.ly/18x6xuo). Otherwise you'll have to recompile drivers for your screen, or attach through HDMI port.

    The link for udoo neo LVDS display seems to be not working. (http://bit.ly/18x6xuo) . Is the product not available anymore? We are looking at using udoo neo for a project but need to know the display option available for direct interface with the board. Display size less than 10" is preferred. Would any hdmi display work right out of the box with neo on android? what options i have for LVDS displays?
    Thank you
