The Great Search: HDMI Connector for DVI Compatible Displays #TheGreatSearch #DigiKey @DigiKey @adafruit
(Video) One of our new Feather designs will sport a full-size HDMI connector that can be used to connect to DVI displays. While the RP2040 itself does not have a native DVI driver, you can sorta-bitbang your way to success using the PicoDVI library.
Like USB, there are standardized connectors, so it’s easy to find a good range of suppliers that will give us full-sized HDMI connectors. Like USB Type C, you can also use the connector in a pick and place line and with some good paste deposition, skip the wave or selective solder step for the through-hole mounting tabs.

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
