I'm not sure if this is worthy a project, or does it belong into this category, or is it even providing any value to the community, BUT I'm still going to post this here in case others want to join.
Any help with the project would be greatly appreciated ♥
First of all the Lapdock is just screen, keyboard, touchpad and battery + some trinkets, it's not a laptop by itself.
My aim is to recreate the Lapdock's "main board" which makes it possible to connect the keyboard, mouse and screen to any other device that one wants to use. Either using off-the-shelf components and/or with FPGA(s).
- Bottom board's pins and function is known.
Interfacing the touchpad driver chip.
Cannot find datasheets, nor can I identify even the manufacturer. I've done inital logic captures of it's communication with the main board, and all of it is documented in the github repository. Communication happens via one data pin and one clock pin at what seems to be 12kHz. Haven't been able to find out where the data- and clock pins connect to on the main board, but I'd assume it's programmable logic anyway.
Yet to be done
- Interfacing screen (assuming lvds, and guessing a direct & simple protocol because of the 1366x768@60Hz speed and raw panel :P)
- Interfacing keyboard (should be simple).
- Battery control.
