UPDATED PRODUCT! Pixel Qi 10 Display with Controller- 1024×600 HDMI/VGA/NTSC/PAL

1303-00
UPDATED PRODUCT! Pixel Qi 10 Display with Controller- 1024×600 HDMI/VGA/NTSC/PAL We’re really excited to offer the revolutionary Pixel Qi display, a full color screen that can also be used in daylight. The Qi has three modes – backlit color, backlit grayscale and daylight grayscale. In normal office/indoor use you’ll want to go with keeping the backlight on to reveal the color layer. The screen works just like any other 10″ TFT with fast refresh (not like slow e-ink). When a bright light shines on it, the display turns ‘gray’ but is still visible. When outdoors in bright light, the backlight can be turned off to revert to a transflective display mode which is much lower power. For much more information please check out the Pixel Qi website

We’ve packaged up this cool screen with a driver board and power supply. Since the screen is 3.3V LVDS, its very hard to connect directly to a microcomputer. The adapter board has a cable that plugs to the screen, there’s a data line and a separate backlight line. (If you want to use the display in low-power backlight-less mode, simply disconnect that plug.) Simply power the controller board with 5-24VDC (we include a 9V power supply) and supply video. You can use HDMI, VGA or NTSC/PAL so you’re covered no matter what interface you want to use! There’s a little keypad thingy you can use to select the input and adjust contrast/brightness/color/etc.

Each order comes with one Pixel Qi screen, LVDS cable, controller board and power adapter. No enclosure, case or stand is included. 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 or SECAM. HDMI cable and Raspberry Pi not included!

For use with a Raspberry Pi we suggest editing config.txt for best results (otherwise, the Pi may not ‘recognize’ the HDMI display and revert to composite output or the wrong resolution) You can now use Raspbian with 1024×600 resolution natively so you can use the Pixel Qi without any ‘black border’. Check the Tech Details tab for the config contents. Our photos above were taken before 1024×600 could be supported natively.

For use with a Beagle Bone Black, we just plugged it in and it worked great, no configuration required.

In stock and shipping!
