BeadaFrame Display Kit is an ARM Cortex-A7 development platform which bundled with a 7" TFT LCD Display. It can be powered and communicated with PC Host by a single Micro USB cable. Currently we use it as a secondary PC monitor for display of hardware status through Remote Sensor LCD.
The question is -- is there any way to implement it as a native support of AIDA LCD screen? We are running Debian Stretch on the ARM Cortex-A7 core.
And more details of this display kit:

I am trying to figure out the best option for a small (max 7'') external screen to use with SensorPanel.
I find lots of options on eBay that I suppose are all viable (e.g., https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/7inch-HDMI-LCD-H-with-case-1024x600-IPS-Capacitive-Touch-Screen-Audio-Output/133067577890).
What I am unsure at the moment:
- Is the quality/resolution of the screen important?
- Is touch input needed/used?
- Is there any difference (limitations) between the three available options (using an HDMI connected screen, a USB connected one and/or an affordable Android tablet)?
Any input would be appreciated. Thank you in advance!
Would be nice if you could rotate output 90 degrees in AIDA 64 LCD config for Logitech ARX.
This, so you can get tablet mode.
it would be nice if there was the possibility to send sensor values unformatted as a number or percentage, via a serial port.
Similar to the LCD displays, only without formatting, or pure numbers with separators.
Together with a small GUI.
Background is the simple evaluation of the data with a microcontroller and display in different ways.
I imagine not only LCD or OLED, but rather seven segment display, nixi tubes or an analog pointer display. That would create a lot of possibilities.
