BeadaPanel LCD device support


Recommended Posts

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.

That looks like a very interesting project.  IMHO it would be best if we could somehow work together to develop a custom, fast LCD protocol that works via USB connection.  If you work for the manufacturer of the Beada hardware, please drop me a private message.  If not, then please let me know what are your qualifications on the software developer's side, since only knowing a bit more about you (or what you can do on the side of your Beada hardware in terms of software/API matters) I can propose possible ways to implement a proper USB communications protocol for the Beada.

BeadaFrame Display Kit是一个ARM Cortex-A7开发平台,它与7“TFT LCD显示器捆绑在一起。它可以通过一根Micro USB线供电并与PC Host通信。目前我们将它用作辅助PC监视器,用于显示硬件通过遥感器LCD显示状态。

问题是 - 有没有办法将其作为AIDA LCD屏幕的原生支持来实现?我们在ARM Cortex-A7内核上运行Debian Stretch。

哈 中国的朋友 ,我有点没看懂,你这个不是已经实现了吗?

目前我们是通过AIDA64的remote sensor功能来实现的,相当于访问AIDA64内建的web服务器。这个效果和AIDA64直接通过USB访问LCD显示器不太一样。你可以自己在电脑上比较一下的。

I just setup the BeadaPanel 5" LCD and it worked right away with Aida! (I evidently was on the right side of version 6.25.5406 beta).

I could even export and import my config for the Logitech G29 to the settings for BeadaPanel. After some tweaking for the larger screen it looks very good.

I haven't decided yet how I shall place it, maybe in some kind of box perhaps.

Awesome!  I'm glad you've had a great user and customer experience with your panel (and AIDA64 ;) )

Nice. Did you get the IPS one or the TFT. Which would be better for a sensor panel?

Any recommendations on where to get a frame for the 5inch display? I’m looking for a black bezel/frame to hide the exposed hardware

Ask @beada about that, maybe they have a ready-made solution for your issue.

I was curious about this too a little while ago. I asked beada and the response I got was they did not have a frame at this time. 
 

so with that said your only option looks like having to get a custom 3D printed one made.

@beadaGot my 6.8 screen up and running... love it so far. 

Vanity question: are there instructions on how I can change the "screensaver"/pictures when the pc is not connected.  As much as I love random buildings and retro racing games - I would love to swap those.

TY in advance.

Yes we have a PC tool named as 'BeadaTools‘ to access on-board storage on BeadaPanel. Here is link-->https://1drv.ms/u/s!ArGfiTxjUGUl_SJ6Kq2Ta46Tkxlj?e=EQBdgh

@beada Hi, I just received this new 6.8" BeadaPanel the other day. It looks great and I am thrilled to be able to change the screensaver using BeadsTools for when Aida64 is not yet connected. The only thing that bugs me is the Linux penguin and BeadaPanel splash screens that are displayed before the screensaver. Is there any way at all to disable these splash screens from appearing when the panel starts up?

We plan to eliminate penguin logo in future but BeadaPanel splash screen will be still there. Both of them are hardcoded inside BeadaPanel firmware so customers will not be able to disable them at panel starts up.

      Is it possible to use 2 (or more) LCDs display different data?  Example: #1 for essential CPU etc while a #2 would have cooling info like fans, liquid temps etc.  If so... what are some recommendations?  Keep hearing Beada (which could work).  Alternatively, is there a larger compatible LCD?  Ideallly bar style but 17-18 wide.
      TY in advance for any guidance!!

      hi all, newbie here! this is my first post so i hope it has landed in the correct place..  be gentle!

      i have installed the 'simple' version of a64, is it possible to run multiple instances of the sensor panel? i have the sensor panel running in a 5 inch screen located inside my case but have a room change planned which will put the case high on a shelf out of my eye sight so i would like a second display for stats placed under my main monitor. i plan to use a larger screen say a 10.1 'ultrawide (if thats the correct term) as i like the extra real-estate. what are my options?
      on a similar topic, is it possible to create an 'unpublished' senor panel before removing the currently used panel? or would i have to save the current panel to file or something then start a new panel?
      also can anyone point me to gauge resources, ie pre made gauges? or an easy to understand tutorial for how to diy them? total novice here, but can follow an idiots guide!

      i have included the final evolution of my first attempt using the provided gauges etc, it took me ages to get rid of the green dials.. i finally gave up trying to figure it out in a64 so i just changed the hue on the 5inch monitor lol. really hoping to learn the skills to create something like i have seen on here.. some really nice work on the share your panel thread, some of those must have taken ages!!! impressive. 
      any advice greatly received, but remember your talking to an a64 absolute novice!!
      Thanks folks.

      Hey guys!
      Im hoping for some input regarding my question. I saw, AIDA64 is supporting a lot of different displays and interfaces. Now which one to choose? Heres some more input from me about what im looking for:
      [Mandatory] 5-8 inch LCD display [Mandatory] only USB powered [Mandatory] black frame design to match my case, if possible [Optional] A flat, not too thick one [Optional] small bezels if possible [Optional] No buttons neccessary, i want to place it inside of my case. [Optional] an internal USB connector to directly connect it to the motherboard At the moment im using some Aquacomputer Vision OLEDs which are working fine. But i can already see some burn in and they are pretty small. Since theres no LCD coming from Aquacomputer anytime soon, im thinking about using AIDA64 to get my data on screen. I have 3 of those OLED on each of the drive bay covers, this is more or less the space i have available
      I have attached a screenshot of the system with the OLEDs and their current placement for you to visualize.
       
      Thank you for your suggestions!
