How do I connect a different E-INK screen to the IMX50EVK daughter card?

I am working with the IMX50EVK and the associated daughter card MX50EBOOKDC1. This daughter card comes with a default 6 in E-ink screen which I have managed to output the linux system to. I have bought a larger E-INK screen and I want to output to this screen instead. This larger screen has a different ribbon cable. How would I be able to do this hardware wise? Are there any adapters that exist that can make this screen compatible with the daughter card?

Hi Conor

I am not aware of IMX50EVK adapters for various E-INK.

Also different Eink panel models would have different timing parameters. 

So one will have to update linux epdc driver with new timing parameter table

for that E-INK screen.

Best regards
