First of all I'm new into the embedded world and to LVDS standard.
I have an LVDS display and a VIA EPIA NL5000EG board and would like to know if the two are compatible. I know I will need the LVDS card LVDS-07G for the main board, but it says it is for 18/24-bit LCD panel display selected by SKU. The display I have I is 6 bit interface which will make it 18 bits (is that correct?). Below are the two module models.
Would the 24-bit version of the LVDS-07G work with the 18bit display? Do I just leave the two MSB or LSB un-connected?
Below is the description of the LCD panel and ITX module.
