LCD interface to RASPI

Wed Jul 24, 2013 5:16 pm

Hi,

Has anyone tested this to connect a LCD to a Raspberry?

Code: Select all

They told me it would not work because the Raspberry has a closed source video driver and can not be ADOPTED to any display.

Is that true?

Well, the GPU is closed so at this stage you cannot attach an LCD. BUT, the port is a standard one, some you can attached most forms of LCD IF you can write the driver.
