I have received all the parts so far. The 5-pin connector showed up yesterday and it fits perfect. I am going to buy a power adapter that will give around 12V DC output. The data sheet of CXA 0512 inverter mentions 0.5A as its max input current. I am getting higher current ratings for 12V DC power adapters. I am gonna look little more at the HSC store and just gonna give a shot to whatever fits closest.

Yeah the soldering is big task. My friend said he might get some wires for me. He also said the wires inside a CAT5 cable (the ethernet cable) will also be good for such tiny connectors.

I am also very eager to get this working. The pieces are just sitting there begging to get hooked up.

Hope to try it over the weekend for sure.

Stay tuned!

Have you made any more progress on hooking up the LCD? I've been following
along and have order some of the parts mentioned here. I've got several of
the components hooked together but I'm still not certain how to go about
soldering the tiny wires on the jumper cable from the LCD to my gumstix
breakout board or how to build the circuit to supply power to the LCD
