 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hello everybody,

I have a nice 12x16 dot matrix panel that I want to make touchable for my little sequencer project but can't source a touch screen with matching dimensions ( 4"x 3,5" ).

This supplier has a very close match ( model ATP-057) but I can't get a hold of them:

I've found a few 7" tablet touchscreens on ebay ( Item number:    250668364086 ) and was studying to possibility of trimming them down.
I can afford a little loss of resolution as I only need 4bit accuracy

I would be really grateful if anybody could share their thoughts/experiences on this!  smiley-grin

Thanks
Alex

trimming touch screens = not possible really.

Either find one the right size or stick it in a larger case, hiding the extra touch area.
