Ok thanks.
What do you think about this screen https://www.aliexpress.com/store/produc ... 4226WL0V5d

Its the smallest 7" inch screen i found. Outline 161mm ×107 mm. Resolution 1280 × 800.
But the board gets power via dc adapter. I am unsure if i can power this thing over usb port.maybe with a usb to dc adapwter /converter.
Anything over 6.5 inch / 145mm wide will not fit.

Hi
When i cut the fram/hole for the display a bit bigger and remove the camera 161x107 should fit.
I hope...

the problem would probably more be the lack of current than voltage... how much is consuming the screen, that's the right question to answer.

I think i will try it. But there so many sets with this screen but different boards. And with or without touchscreen.
What should I look for on the board?

Would not be easier just to use a tested lcd just like this so you have perfect fit and runs straight from 5V with no modification ? But It does have lower resolution. All of these small lcd's will draw around 500 mA depending on brightness.

Yes you are right. The seller had also written to me that the 7 "screen can only be operated with an external power supply.The decision for the right display I find difficult, either the resolution is good, but the screen is too small, or the size fits but the resolution is worse.

With the 5.9 1080p screen and the standard digitizer there is a lot of space between display and gamepad frame so i need a wider bezel or something.
Any ideas how to handle this ?

My bezel is broken and my digitzer came without the bezel.... i have to buy a additional.

@banjokazooie
How did you connect the digitzer with the ar1100 ? Did you soldered the cable ?
The cable from my digitzer is bit smaller.
Or is the cable of the original digitzer the right size for the ar1100 ?
Thanks

The connector on the ar1100 is standard 1mm pitch 4 pin. Adafruit sells just the bare board with the smaller 0.5mm pitch 4 pin connector but will not fit wiiu touchscreen because of the thinner flex.

You need standard 0.5mm pitch 4pin locking smd connector which I have soldered onto common micro usb type pcb board.
