View Full Album
The case is made of Perspex sides. The parts interlock together. I put it together in a temporary mode by slotting it together and then applying tape across the edges. I’ll glue it together later.
Note that the back is a thinner side and so the slots are smaller on that side.
I assembled it as follows: (As in the Image Album above).
Peel off protective cover for inside sides. I left the outside protected for now.
Attach the top to the 3 sides other than the back

The cat is out of the bag… The Northern Summer (it will be Winter Downunder) embedded Spark Challenge has been announced:
The theme is “Media Explosion” and the context in Windows Embedded Standard 7, the embedded version of Windows 7.
Thos who progress to round two get a suitable hardware supplied.
WES 7 has gone RTM but not yet available on MSDN (Subscribers).

The question is how much can entries appear to just use the inbuilt WES 7 devices/macros yet offer something that is different.

Display: LCD-AU084-U-SET with touch / LCD-AU084-SET without touch
Target System: Vortex86DX- Spark Kit .. in enclosure. This has VDX-6326-256 single board computer
The display was mounted on the top of the box using some plastic mounts. This required routing of the LVDS and the backlight signals through the lid. The backlight circuitry was mounted internally on the lid.

The short backlight power cable is fixed to the bottom left of the board. This connects to the supplied backlight power supply.
The backlight part number is QF38V6.4
The backlight requires a 12V supply that is not avail ...
