The 7.0” capacitive touch, generation 4, LCD from 4D Systems is a cape specifically designed for the BeagleBone Black, and provides a 7.0” primary display for the BBB for direct user interaction and information display. The BeagleBone Black connects directly on to an adaptor CAPE, which then connects to the display module using a 30 way FFC ribbon cable, enabling multiple mounting options. Everything the LCD CAPE requires such as power and display signals are provided from the BBB directly, via the Adapter and FFC ribbon cable.
The BeagleBone Black LCD cape features 7 push buttons below the screen, LEFT, RIGHT, UP, DOWN, ENTER, RESET and POWER, along with 2 LED’s to indicate Power and User Status. Mounting the cape is easy with the 4x 3.5mm mounting holes present on it, enabling standard M3 or #6-32 screws to fasten the the LCD cape as required.
Note: This LCD is only compatible with the BeagleBone Black.
