Same part number, (SGD-24M from Lascar Electronics). Jameco has a

More information, too. Apparently it is also a touchscreen device,
although it would appear that this feature, like the SPI and I2C
buses, is not yet enabled. Ominously, the website about the
PanelPilot configuration software <http://www.panelpilot.com> says
that this version is free but future versions will be subscription-
based. Maybe we'll have to pay extra to use the advanced hardware....
Oh well, never mind. I'll wait for something more robust and less
proprietary. Or for this one to get pried open by the hacker
