Gumstix kick butt. I bought on this summer to record weather and gps
data from a sailing/hiking trip. I'm glad to say that the gumstix
worked flawlessly. It recorded two months worth of weather data (wind
speed/direction, temp in/out, barometric pressure) and gps data (just
location /quality of signal info) and depth sounder. Fantastic little
box for this. Was low power enough that we could leave it running off
the boats batteries 24/7. Anyhow... The one problem was we had to break out a laptop to view our data. This
turned out to be enough of a turn off that we rarely looked at the data.
So I bought myself one of the sony ACX705AKMs and a breakout-gs. I'm
looking to make a board which gives me three serial ports, power
regulator (from 12v), and the lcd. I'm planning on simply jumping from
the breakout board to my own board (didn't want to deal with the hirose
connectors). I was hoping to simply use the scematics from the display
page tar.gz to get started. Problem is when I download it I can ungzip
it but not untar the results which makes me think the uploader failed to
create the tar correctly. If anyone has that info I'd love it...
otherwise here are my questions...
Which of the data lines are for r/g/b? I see 16 data lines from the
gumstix and 9 data lines for the sony... Is this simply because of the
bit depth on the sony?Is Frame clock == vsync, line clock == hsync, pixel clock == clock?
what are these mic1 and mic2 lines?
Whats the right way to drive the led frontlight? seems to say 6.5v-9.0v?
Any other help I might use?

tar -zxf doesn't seem to work with it for some reason.
gunzip -d gumstix_acx705akm.tar.gz
tar -xf gumstix_acx705akm.tar
and the acx705akm directory is extracted with no errors.
