NEW PRODUCT – HDMI 4 Pi – 5.6″ Display 1280×800 (720p) Kit – Yes, this is a super-sharp 5.6″ TFT display with incredibly high resolution (270 PPI) and great angle-visibility! 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. The display is very easy to use – simply connect a 5-12V DC adapter to the 2.1mm center-positive DC jack, then connect a digital video source to one of the ports. 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.

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 currents.

  1. An optional case would also be nice!

  2. The Pitop or LaPi is due soon.

  3. Will you be adding any mechanical drawings to the product info? It would be useful to have the mounting information (screw centers, depth of the various boards, and so on) before trying to incorporate it into a project.
