HDMI 7″ Touchscreen

Does not include HDMI or USB cable (power supply)


  • Touchscreen that shows up as a USB mouse – no special drivers needed
  • Touchscreen works on Mac, Windows, and Debian Linux (Raspbian on a Raspberry Pi) – does not work with a Raspberry Pi + Windows 10 IOT yet
  • 7″ display with 800×480 resolution
  • microUSB port
  • 150mA backlight current
  • Total current draw: 600mA
  • Panel-mountable
  • Plug-n-play
  • Attaches to any computer with HDMI output
  • Features TFP401 for decoding video (a DVI/HDMI decoder from TI) – does NOT contain a video scaler
  • Can take unencrypted video and pipe out the raw 24-bit color pixel data
  • HDCP not supported
  • Can be powered from a USB port as long as the power source can supply 600mA on the USB port
  • PWM input

Total current can be reduced down 400mA by running the backlight at half-brightness (75mA). With the backlight off, the decoder and display itself draws 250mA. For more backlight control, connect the PWM input to your microcontroller or other PWM output and you can continuously dim the backlight as desired.

Suggested for use with single board computers (or desktop.laptops) with DVI/HDMI output.
