The kit allows them to easily industrialise their equipment by adding the larger screen, yet still maintaining the software and programs already developed for the current 7 inch version.
The kit comes pre-assembled to take the Raspberry Pi which is simply mounted onto the rear of the interface PCB using the supplied pillars and screws. The display can be either panel or ﬂush mounted and provides a resolution up to WXGA.
Connection is via an on-board HDMI interface PCB which provides all power, signal and backlight conversion for the TFT display. The Kit requires 12V at 2A to drive the TFT display, touch panel and backlight, and 5V at 2A to power the Pi.
Features include a multi-touch input PCAP touch screen offering pinch, zoom and rotate, which can be either USB or I2C connected if preferred, a wide view angle IPS display and a resolution of 1280x800 pixels. The screen dimensions are 255x174x9mm (including the touch panel) with a view area of 218x137mm.
Designed to work with all models of the Raspberry Pi this kit has proven reliability having been tested to temperatures of +70ºC.
