    This product is likely end of life. This document is here purely for support purposes should the files be required if anyone has the add-on cape.

     

    The BeagleBone-HDMI Cape is designed by Embest to provide HDMI interface for BeagleBone. This board features a standard HDMI connector that can be connected to a monitor through an HDMI cable. The cape also provides LCD display capabilities for using with BeagleBone. Embest offers 4.3 inch and 7 inch LCD panel for selections. However, the display functions of HDMI and LCD are multiplexed, that is to say, customer cannot use the HDMI and LCD display functions at the same time. Cutbacks are made for the Ethernet connector so the BeagleBone-HDMI Cape can fit perfectly on the BeagleBone.
