Raspberry Pi 7” Touchscreen Display

The 7” Touchscreen Monitor for Raspberry Pi gives users the ability to create all-in-one, integrated projects such as tablets, infotainment systems and embedded projects. The 800 x 480 display connects via an adapter board which handles power and signal conversion. Only two connections to the Pi are required; power from the Pi’s GPIO port and a ribbon cable that connects to the DSI port present on all Raspberry Pi’s. Touchscreen drivers with support for 10-finger touch and an on-screen keyboard will be integrated into the latest Raspbian OS for full functionality without the need for a physical keyboard or mouse.

Technical Specification:

* 7” Touchscreen Display
* Screen Dimensions: 194mm x 110mm x 20mm (including standoffs)
* Viewable screen size: 155mm x 86mm
* Screen Resolution 800 x 480 pixels
* 10 finger capacitive touch
* Connects to the Raspberry Pi board using a ribbon cable connected to the DSI port
* Adapter board is used to power the display and convert the parallel signals from the display to the serial (DSI) port on the Raspberry Pi
* Will require the latest version of Raspbian OS to operate correctly

Features and Benefits:

* Turn your Raspberry Pi into a touch screen tablet, infotainment system, or standalone device.
* Truly Interactive – the latest software drivers will support a virtual ‘on screen’ keyboard, so there is no need to plug in a keyboard and mouse.
* Make your own ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) devices including a visual display. Simply connect your Raspberry Pi, develop a Python script to interact with the display, and you’re ready to create your own home automation devices with touch screen capability.
* A range of educational software and programs available on the Raspberry Pi will be touch enabled, making learning and programming easier on the Raspberry Pi.

Kit Contents:

* 7” Touchscreen Display
* Adapter Board
* DSI Ribbon cable
* 4 x stand-offs and screws (used to mount the adapter board and Raspberry Pi board to the back of the display
* 4 x jumper wires (used to connect the power from the Adapter Board and the GPIO pins on the Pi so the 2Amp power is shared across both units)
