    After seeing how many acronyms I can fit into a title, I'm hoping one of you fine folks will give me some advise.

    I recently acquired a door camera which I broke within 5 minutes of opening. I took it apart this morning to find it contains a small 3.5" screen.

    My day to day desktop uses a thin-itx board, which has a LVDS connector.

    Im hoping I could use a something like this, to convert LVDS to the LCD ribbon:

    This would give me a small second screen running off the motherboard.

    Anyone had any experience with this?

    If its a generic LCD, it will use either parallel or SPI bus, if it was designed for mobile phone - DSI, your mother board probably has fpd-link "LVDS", none of those are compatible with one another.
    (LVDS is a generic term describing physical layer signaling, but not the underlying protocol, i.e. SATA is also LVDS)
