I'm looking for a CAN-controlled LCD for one of my project. Does any body know if this kind of LCD is available in the market? if it's not, I need to use a MCU to convert CAN message to RS232 or whatever is needed for the LCD. any suggestion?

First, apologies for the long delay in replying. As you know, TI does not have LCDs, and since you are asking about one with a CAN interface, I am assuming your design already has a uC or Processor with a CAN interface, is that correct?
Our TM4C-series of processors have 2 CAN interfaces, for example: www.ti.com/product/TM4C1290NCZAD . There are many reference designs, some of them using LCDs for display. Scroll down the page to the Related Equipment section; in the list, there is an entire section of Digital Signage: www.ti.com/solution/digital_signage . What I don't know is whether any of them use CAN for the interface to the LCD, so you may have to search through several of these designs to determine the LCD interface. I will also do more inquiry here on this side to see if something is readily available.
p.s. there is also an E2E thread that discusses LCDs: https://e2e.ti.com/support/microcontrollers/tiva_arm/f/908/p/581119/2133211 . Perhaps look through the WAVESHARE link referenced in this thread.

The TM4C series has CAN and the interfaces needed to connect to most LCD displays. You did not mention the size or type of LCD display that you want to control. The lower end TM4C device family, the TM4C123x devices have a low end development board EK-TM4C123GXL Launchpad. It has a stake pin header that is compatible with a Kentec QVGA Booster Pack. You would need to wire up a CAN driver chip. There are some good sample programs available in the TivaWare driver library for this display.
Another option is the DK-TM4C123G development kit. It is more expensive, but already has the CAN driver and a 96 x 64 Color OLED Display on board.
MathWorks offers an Embedded Coder target for Energia which supports MSP430G2 and Tiva TM4C123G.

Thanks Brian, it sounds like I would buy EK-TM4C123GXL and play with it.
