    • Expansion Board for BeagleBone family with 7 inch LCD


    The BB-View is a portable LCD solution with touchscreen capability for BeagleBone boards, a credit-card-sized expandable Linux computer to evaluate the TI’s Sitara™ AM335x ARM® Cortex™-A8 processors.

    The BB-View has been designed with convenience in mind and extends the I/O interfaces of the BeagleBone & BeagleBone Black (sold separately) allowing users to utilise a touchscreen LCD display without sacrificing I/O interface access. BB-View fits on top of the BeagleBone or BeagleBone Black and still has full access to all the GPIOs via two 46-pin connectors. It’s equipped with five switches (four for GPIOs & one for Boot) and two user defined LEDs.

    The BB-View is supplied with an 18-bit TFT LCD module in size 7" which can display up to a resolution of 800x480 which have a 4-wire resistive touchscreen interface.

    The BB-View draws power directly from the board (BeagleBone or BeagleBone Black) eliminating the need for any kind of external power supply. The BB- View is supplied with a pre-complied BSP image with various Linux QT based demos to help setup your BeagleBone boards quickly and easily.

    Note: In order to power LCD module directly from BeagleBone or BeagleBone Black please power the BeagleBone or BeagleBone Black using DC power adapter instead of USB power.
