A 7-inch Touchscreen Display for the Raspberry Pi, expanding the ecosystem of accessories, to enable users to create all-in-one integrated projects such as turning their Pi into a tablet, infotainment system or embedded project is available from element14. Compatible with Raspberry Pi 2, and Raspberry Pi 1 models B+ and A+*, the screen can be used to make ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) devices with a visual display.
Connect the Raspberry Pi, develop a Python script, and create home automation devices with touchscreen capability.
A range of educational software and programs available on the Raspberry Pi will be touch enabled, making learning and programming easier.
Designed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation, the 800 × 480 display connects to the Raspberry Pi’s DSI display connector via an adapter board that handles power and signal conversion. 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.
The screen dimensions are 194mm x 110mm x 20mm (including standoffs), with a viewable screen size of 155mm x 86mm and screen resolution of 800 x 480 pixels
The kit contains 7-inch Touchscreen Display, adaper 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 and 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).
