Introduction

I recently designed a frame and stand for the Avnet MaaXBoard MIPI LCD touch display

 

There were 3 main design goals . . .

  1. Provide some level of protection for the LCD display
    1. Frame can lay with the screen down and screen will not touch surface
  2. Provide stands for both portrait and landscape modes
    1. Frame can be lifted from stand
  3. Provide optional MaaXBoard MIPI CSI Camera mounts (one for each orientation)

 

 

If your are not already familiar with MaaXBoard RT, this is the latest member in the series of Raspberry Pi form-factor NXP i.MX based “MaaXBoard” Single Board Computer (SBC) boards from Avnet. The NXP RT1176 crossover device on this unique board includes 1GHz Arm Cortex-M7 and 400 MHz Cortex M4 cores with 2MB of high-speed on-chip memory, which together enable extremely low-latency, real time operation. Seen as a crossover device, it also features application processor-type functionality with features such as 2D GPU and graphics accelerator, support for MIPI CSI camera and MIPI DSI display, multiple Ethernet interfaces, advanced audio processing enablement, etc.
