12 Inches Display for Duet WiFi

We want to use a bigger display about 12 inches instead of the panel due. Please suggest a display that integrates with duet wifi.

Perhaps you could use some cheap tablet running DWC.
I agree, use a tablet.
Using a tablet with DWC is the easiest way to achieve this.
David's documentation is here; https://miscsolutions.wordpress.com/paneldue/
I have not looked but it might be possible to find . larger screen with a SSD1963 contoller that is compatible with the PanelDue but you would need to change the PanelDue firmware to work with a different resolution.

Just curious but what does using a 12inch screen displaying the same buttons (just bigger) get you? I've got a 4.3inch screen, the buttons are not too small to press. Now if there was a plan to introduce a "hi-def" format with a lot more info on it…
On another machine I've also got a 7inch tablet running DWC, you get more information but the tablet is fiddly to use and a bit unreliable.
The paneldue is easier and more reliable, but I can't see how a massive one would make it better.

Theres a 9" display available with the SSD1963 chipset and the same resolution as the 7" -
I assume as its the same resolution as the 7" the same paneldue firmware would would, but DC42 could probably answer that one.
That display should be electrically compatible with the PanelDue controller if you order it with the resistive touch screen; however the pinout of the 40-pin connector is different, so it is complicated to wire up.
