Testing raw DPI display capability on the Raspberry Pi 2, Model B and B+ – (video). Did you know that the Broadcom processor on the Raspberry Pi can control a ‘raw dotclock’ type display? Well now you do! A Model B+ or Pi 2 Model B has enough pins for 18-bit color, and since it uses the graphics processor, its really fast. You just need to run the vga666 device tree overlay and wire up a breakout. I’m working on a HAT version too 🙂
