  • Description

    Description-

    Make a lovely audio/video setup with a 5.6" 720p screen with HDMI stereo speaker support. For video, we have a super-sharp 5.6" TFT display with incredibly high resolution - it has 270 PPI! We tried to get the smallest & highest resolution display that would be good for embedded computing usage. The visible display measures 5.6" diagonal and is a 'raw' LVDS display as is used in a tablet, ultra thin with some mounting tabs around the edge. We include a driver board with HDMI, VGA and Composite inputs as well as stereo 4 ohm at 3W output driving capability. The setup is very easy to use - simply connect a 5-12VDC adapter to the 2.1mm center-positive DC jack, then connect a digital video source to one of the ports and two 4 to 8 ohm speakers to the SPK output pins. Voila, a display!

    It is not an IPS display so its best for direct viewing, our 7" and 10" HDMI displays are IPS so they look great from any angle.

    There's a little wired PCB with little buttons that let you enter a menu system for adjusting brightness, color and contrast. It tries to auto-detect which input you have and switches to that one or you can 'select' from the menu keypad which to display.

    We include a plug-in cable that connects to the 4 speaker output pins, the pins are labeled LOUT+/- and ROUT+/- you'll have to solder your own speakers to the 4 wires

    To demonstrate it, we took some photos with the display connected to a Raspberry Pi, but it will also work connected to any device with HDMI, VGA or NTSC/PAL output. It will not work with a device that only outputs DVI (without a DVI->HDMI converter) or SECAM.

    For use with a BeagleBone black, we found it works when plugged in, no configuration required.

    A power adapter is not included! Any 5 to 12VDC adapter will work nicely: we prefer 9V DC. Check the technical tabs for current draw at various voltages. We show the display on a bent wire stand which is not included, but you can pick one up here
