Product Description

If you're looking for a neat panel-mount touchscreen HDMI monitor for your Raspberry Pi or Beaglebone Black then this is the screen for you. The display measures 5" and the touch screen emulates a USB mouse - perfect for your Raspberry Pi. The electronics are housed on a separate included backpack, which features the TFP401 - a beefy DVI/HDMI decoder from Texas Instruments. It can take unencrypted video and pipe out the raw 24-bit color pixel data - HDCP not supported! The 5" display is 800x480 resolution, which is just enough to run most software, but still small enough that it can be used in portable or embedded projects without the bulk.

You can even power the entire display from a USB port. With the default 5" 800x480 display and 50mA backlight current, the current draw is 500mA total. You can reduce that down  370mA by running the backlight at half-brightness (25mA). With the backlight off, the decoder and display itself draws 250mA. If you want more backlight control, there's a PWM input, connect that to your microcontroller or other PWM output and you can continuously dim the backlight as desired.

Again - the touch screen shows up as a USB mouse so you can use it with any computer, no special drivers needed. How awesome is that? You can power the driver over USB as long as your computer can supply 500mA on the USB port, and then feed it video via the HDMI port. Please note the TFP401 decoder chip does not contain a video scaler, it will not resize/shrink video!
