The PSP screen needs a lot of horsepower to run it, and a good amount of available memory for screen images. It is very cool, the only thing holding me back is that I can't think of anything practical to actually use it for.

EDIT: The datasheet is pretty complete for the Sharp PSP screen. You don't need much more tech info than that to get the basics going.

He's got a myspace page, but if he used an FPGA to drive it I wouldn't get too hopeful of being able to do it on a micro.

I have been looking for an excuse to get into FPGAs.

Lets leave the speculation in the ****-chat forum. It's biggest limitation is the 9Mhz clock rate. There's no reason why this can't be done with an ARM7. I don't use the LPC's, but the LPC2478 has a built in LCD hardware block that can handle much bigger direct TFT displays than this one.

you can surely controll it with a pic32. Im sure i could. I bet if i get that screen ill controll it with a 18F pic and some port expanders and a SD card interface.

If you're looking for an excuse to get into FPGA's try driving a full VGA LCD, they're approximately equivalent in complexity.
