How To Use A DPI Display With A Raspberry Pi

Robert Ely has a great blog post about how to use a DPI (display parallel interface) display with the Raspberry Pi.  Check out the post to learn how to wire up the display and configure the Pi to output video to it just like it were a HDMI display.  Robert was inspired by Ladyada’s demonstration above and even used the TFT friend and a 5″ display from Adafruit for his project.  Nice work and great explanation of using a DPI display!

Let’s add a dirt cheap display to the Raspberry Pi B+


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Just trying again to get my sainmart.com 5″ display working with my B+, and ran into this video, (after asking the raspberry pi guy and Gordon)
    So! There is hope!!
    I love this resistor reading, next do cap. dots))

    THANK YOU COMMUNITY)) LADYADA))
