Hi all, I am Lorenzo, from Italy. This is the first time that I write in the international forum: for me writing in english is a little problem, I hope that you would understand my message :) I readed a lot about arduino and LCDs, but I didn't find a dispaly suitable for my little project, so I decided to ask to the forum.
I have an arduino duemilanove and I'm going to buy a microSD breakout board. I need to store some JPEG pictures in the SD card and display them in the LCD. I found some LCDs that can display bitmap pictures, but no one that can read directly JPEG pictures. I know that arduino isn't fast enough to decompress an image from JPEG to BMP, so I need an external conversion shield, or better an external module with the converter and the display. Do you know if there is a shield suitable for my purpose?
PS: I don't necessarily need a LCD, a shield for VGA or RCA output and an external monitor would also be good.
