I should have ordered the version of the LCD display that had the touch panel mounted.  I had to order it later and attach it.

  1. I downloaded the driver from
    and installed it to the development PC. 
  2. I then added the touch driver subproject to the image and built the image.
  3. The kit comes with the Touch Panel Controller(hardware), an external USB cable, an internal USB cable and the driver to touch panel cable (short).
  4. The panel has a strip conductor to which the short cable connect.  There are two ways to connect, right way and upside down.  If you get it wrong, the touch will function in reverse or rated as the cable is:
  5. I connected up the system initially using the external USB cable and just placing the panel on top of the display so that I could check that all works and to determine the correct orientation.
  6. The panel sort of worked but needed configuration.  There were some extra registry settings but the notes are a little confusing.
  7. Make a note at this point of the correct orientation of the screen and which way is up and down.
  8. There is a second CE project in the driver install directory.  This is a set of touch configuration tools for the panel.  When run you can:
    • Configure touch such that it beeps when touched.
    • Configure the panel with 4 touch points in corners.
    • Configure the panel with 25 touch points
    • A drawing program to test touch.
  9. I added this subproject and rebuilt the image.  This fixed everything.  I set it to run after system start using the Autorun application.
  10. I cut a suitable hole for the panel connector in the lid.
  11. I mounted the Touch Panel Controller on the underside of the lid using two plastic spacers
  12. After cleaning the bottom of the touch screen and the top of the LCD screen, I attached the panel as follows:
    • Used double sided tape.
    • Cut this into 4 thin strips and affixed to the LCD display just clear of the viewing area, making sure that there are no gaps so that when the panel is attached, the area between the panel and the LCD display is sealed.
    • Removed the cover of the tape
    • Carefully aligned the panel and attached it.
  13. I removed the USB connector at J4 (USB 1)  .  This means that the two front side USB sockets aren’t available.  I’ll use a USB hub on the rear USB socket.
  14. I then used the internal USB touch cable carefully consulting the touch panel datashsheets and the USB- socket data page 12 of the SBC User’s Manual.  I used the odd pins.  At a later stage I will make a connector so that the USB port on the even pins can be used.
  15. I ended up adding the SIP catalog item to the image  (Larger SIP).
  16. The panel works well with a stylus.  Some menus (especially the Start Menu) are bit small for fingers. 
    • With desktop Windows you have an option for small and large screen fonts.  Larger screen fonts would be useful (Need to investigate).
