Hi Gary

We have posted some information about our plans for our Overo product line in gumstix.net:

http://www.gumstix.net/Hardware/view/Hardware/Product-Roadmap-Overo/112.html

Although we have not announced release dates for these products, you can look for the first of the LCD-capable expansion boards to be released this winter 2009. This would be second Overo expansion board, in addition to the Summit board that we released last Fall.

Keeping along with this thread, what is the roadmap and time frame for the
Overo system to get an LCD display interface?

Also just diving into this are the drivers available for the LCD Display if
an LCD display where to be "prototyped" onto the
Summit board?

You are correct that the current Overo Earth with Summit board is not
configured to directly drive an LCD display.  I suppose you could find a 4
to 6 inch LCD display with HDMI input (or use a HDMI to VGA converter:
http://www.ambery.com/hddvitovgafo.html is one possiblity).

You can also take a look at the Summit expansion board schematics (
http://pubs.gumstix.org/boards/SUMMIT/PCB30001-R2185/) to see how the video
is currently setup - the Overo Earth board does bring the raw LCD signals
out through J1 on the board so that would be a "possiblity" but you will
still need to provide the power and interfacing circuitry (and I doubt it
would be a "fast fix" to your needs).

Hope this helps.
