Note: 2.8” USB TFT Touch Display Screen is discontinued now.
In recent years, computing terminals have expanded exponentially from desktop to portable handheld devices. We have witnessed the rapid development of these devices. Complex operating systems being ported to tiny embedded hardware like Raspberry Pi, Cubieboard, routers with openWRT, etc. Those devices that has managed to become compact and easy to carry have being wide spread products and majority of them are on the Ghz level of processing power.
Like PCs but with a compact system and considerable computing resources, it has become the solution for various enthusiasts. Many open source hardware vendors have being dreaming for this solution for quite some time. However, some interactions for these embedded solutions still need bulky HDMI monitors or TVs for use or even debugging.
In order to allow these devices have some portability and economize power at the same time, this portable USB monitor with touch screen (RPUSBDisp) is created. It is designed specifically for embedded designs with business card size and it just requires a USB cable to make it work without additional power supply.
Supported Hardware Platforms
Supports any computing devices with USB Host communication functionality to act as a standard display or touch screen devices. You just need to add the corresponding driver. For the majority of embedded devices supporting Linux OS, we offer open source kernel driver and several OS images that you can try. Download the sources and adapt it to your project, or directly download the image and try it on any of the supported platforms:
You can use it as a display for most embedded development board on the current market (such as Raspberry Pi, Cubieboard, etc.). Benefit from USB interface that provides opportunity for those devices that cannot connect with monitor for display in the past like routers. In addition, we support Arduino Yun and Intel Galileo Developer Edition!
With the drivers developed by RoboPeak, RPUSBDisp can be identified as a standard display and touch-screen device by the operating system, that means any existing graphical interface program can be displayed without any modification.
As an open source project, we provide it's schematics, communication protocols, Linux kernel driver code and so on. That helps you develop and create new designs easily.
