    “fully integrated solution” -> so there is really no need anymore for a HDMI-LVDS converter for the raspberry pi?
    thanks in advance

      HDMI-LVDS is integrated to LCD electronic, so you don’t need separate converter.

    Two questions:

    Is the black frame removable so that an open frame can be taken out of it, or is the frame glued to the display?

    Is the surface glossy or matte? (on both?)

    1. Cable is available as an optional accessory during order.
    2. MiniUSB is for touchscreen.
    3. Multi-touch requires re-build of your kernel with HID Touchscreen driver.

    1. Yes, it has optional light sensor (available as additionally accessory).
    2. No. Btw, I can’t find LCD with your p/n. Can give me a link?

    Will it work with odroid? Odroid HDMI can only output 720p and 1080p, hence if I connect to odroid will it scale to 1280×720? Thx

      Current version doesn’t have LVDS scaler. You can buy 7″ capacitive that we just introduced – this comes with scaler. Universal board will be presented later in May.

      Current 10″ solution has most of these features. New platform for 10″ is scheduled for June.

    There is no holes, but there are mounting brackets on sides.

  10. Dr. Ace Jeangle

    Connectors are placed on the middle vertical line of back side.

    Yes. It is standard HID Multitouch driver that is available in main branch of Linux kernel.

  12. Dr. Ace Jeangle

    It can be powered through USB, but it will require a little bit higher current than standard 0.5A of USB.

    I’m out of office to China to inspect our new PCB factory. Sorry, but Internet is widely available here. I answered your question in another topic. Your LCD comes without embedded backlight driver.

    1. 10″ is to be released in June.
    2. It has mounting brackets on both sides. Will make photos to showup.
    3. You can power through miniUSB that is frot touchscreen. Just take care that your source can provide 0.7A/5V

    Can you please let me know where can I get windows multi-touch drivers for the 7″ panel?

    • Dr. Ace Jeangle
      Jun 27, 2014

      You don’t need drivers for Windows (of course, your Windows must 7 or later), because it is USB HID device, and can work without drivers.
