Raspberry Pi 7” Touchscreen Display
N.B. Will require the latest version of Raspbian OS to operate correctly.
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 a physical keyboard or mouse.
N.B. The Raspberry Pi Board and Power Supply are not included in this kit, and are sold separately
The display will technically work with the Model A and Model B boards (connecting it to the DSI port on the Pi board), however the mounting holes on the back of the display will only line up with the newer board design (A+, B+ and Pi2)
Getting Started and Operating Software:
Follow the ‘How to assemble the RPi touchscreen display’ instructions from element14 accompanying this brief Having assembled the Raspberry Pi Touchscreen Display, users will need to download and install the latest version of the Raspbian Operating System - available to download from the Raspberry Pi Foundation at: https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/
Once installed, type ‘sudo apt-get update’ and ‘sudo apt-get upgrade’ and ‘sudo rpi-update’ (in that order) to install all of the latest drivers and software to support the Touchscreen Display.
