Add a glorious 2048×1536 ultra-high pixel density IPS Retina display to any computer with a Thunderbolt/Displayport port. This product comes with a new iPad 3 retina display module and our custom made driver board attached. Power with 9-12VDC (~800mA draw) and connect a DisplayPort cable. Tada! No drivers or other converters required.

The driver board is a work of art (designed by KTOWN) – we use the really awesome LT3754 as a 12-channel constant current driver with individual backlight string channel control. This gives the backlight a perfect consistency over any usage or temperature range. A ATtiny85 handles the backlight dimming and soft on/off, so you can PWM the backlight over a range to get the look you want.

Comes with a display panel already attached, tested and ready to go. We’ll also have the wire stand available for a few extra $. An enclosure and capacitive overlay is in the works (no ETA)

Use as a main screen or even better, as a secondary monitor. Great for photo or video editing – you can use a large main monitor for frame-by-frame editing and then preview on the smaller side frame. Or keep your email or dashboard notifications on the side. Heck, webdevs could even use it to preview their sites on a Retina display. The 9.7″ screen is small enough to keep out of the way.
