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:
NXP/Freescale ARM Cortex-A7 i.MX6ULL
1 x WIFI 802.11 b/g/n module(AP6212)
1 x USB 2.0 Host(Type A)
1 x USB 2.0 OTG(Micro-USB)
7.0" TFT LCD: 800x480 (AT070TN92) , w/ touch and bezel
On Board Resources
Reset Circuit with reset button
1 x Power select jumper
1 x Boot select jumper
1 x USER LED
188 x 118 x 35(mm)
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!
Hey Aida Team,
i have some issues with this Adafruit LCD wich is recomended. On the two Pictures you can see what aida should do and what can i see on the Display. The First line is completely erased and the screen is flickering. The Adafruit Backpack is set to 20x4 LCD. When the Display is updating you can see the right setting for a millisecond.
But if i change the LCD Setting in AIDA to 16x2, and leave the Backpack in 20x4 mode, the Screen isn flickering and the first line is there. I think you got a little problem with the 20x4 Driver. I have Searched for the code but i cant find it, to edit it if i found the failure.
Please give me response for this BUG. I have extra ordert this overpriced 50€ LCD for it.
Greetings Daniel from Germany
