I’m new to EE and I have a project I’m working on that has confused me. I have an old display from a laptop that I want to make into a custom 2nd monitor, I bought a driver board for that model display. It has hdmi for the input and a separate dc jack for the 12v 2A power input. I am wondering if there is a way to get a usb c cable and split the lines to the hdmi port and get a negotiation board to ask for the 12v from my laptop usb c port. Would the protocols for hdmi and usb c line up if I require the data lines from the usb c cable and require the power lines to power the board. I’m not afraid to learn what I need to learn. I would really love to use a single usb c for power/data transmission instead of two separate wires. Any information greatly helps me. Here is a link to the board https://www.ebay.com/itm/LCD-LED-controller-board-kit-DIY-HDMI-VGA-DVI-for-LTN156AT34-LTN156AT36-1366X768-/153148696996 If I can’t split the lines, how hard would it be for me to make my own usb receiver/hdmi converter. I have basic programming skills and can learn anything I need to for this project. Thanks.
