      5 Inch BeagleBone Green LCD Cape with Resistive Touch

      SKU 104990262
      8 Available


      This cape features a compact 5 inch LCD for Beaglebone Green or Beaglebone Black. On size it’s a bit smaller than the 7 inch version, but it still has a graphical display at 800x480 resolution and a layer of 4-wired resistive touchscreen for user interactions. It’s very easy to set it up as you only need to attach it directly onto your BBG/BBB through the 2x46 pin headers, which will provides everything the cape requires such power and display signals. Also as an alternative, you can power the cape through the built-in micro USB on the back.

      Below the screen is an array of push buttons - LEFT, RIGHT, UP, DOWN and ENTER, which provides an alternative way to interact with your screen. Besides, two LEDs are used to indicate Power and User status,


      This LCD cape is only compatible with SeeedStudio Beaglebone Green and Beaglebone Black.

      Questions and Answers

      Do you have a drawing showing dimensions and positions of the switches and the beaglebone itself? I need to make another cape for application-specific circuitry, but the dimensions of that board will depend on where the beaglebone is on the lcd board.

      All I really need to know is the distance between the beaglebone connectors and the bottom of the board.

      Hello, i'm using this LCD screen and a BeagleBone Black as the user interface to control a CNC-style machine that i'm making, i want to get the control signals from the BeagleBone but the screen ocuppies all the outputs, have any of you made, or know of any shields that let me control some motors from the beagleBone WHILE also controlling it with the touchscreen?Any ideas are appreciated.

      You should be able to use I2C with an I2C expansion buss and three I2c motor controllers to operate 3 stepper motors. If you need to control more than three steppers you could use two expansion busses or you could try an I2C multiplexer, allowing you to use up to 8 I2C boards with the same address and only one port.
