Will this work with the new RPI 3 A+ board?
Will this 7" case and touch screen work with the new RPI 3 A+ form factor? Are there any special cables you recommend to help power this solution too? Thank you.
useful temperature range?
I have an application where the LCD would be exposed to low temperatures (down to -35C). Typical dot matrix LCDs react very slowly at these temps (I've much experience with that). I'm wondering how this display does?
  • "Typically, standard LCD character and graphics modules provide a temperature range of 0°C to +50°C." - Source DigiKey.

    I doubt this screen will function well below 0°C

Dual screen ouput
Would it be possible to connect a screen via the HDMI lead in addition to using this touchscreen and output video on both?

Dual output/The Pi HDMI port
I'm planning a Pi3 portable media player build with this screen and the ModMiPi case. As I understand it video and audio in this set-up would run as video to the screen, audio to the headphones port. If I was to connect an HDMI cable run to a monitor or TV would the video output default to this instead, require changes to setting to do this or even output to both screens? If it does output to HDMI would the audio output switch to this also?

  • The Official 7" Touch Screen always takes priority. The only way, as far as i know, to swtich to HDMI output with the touch screen still connected is to edit the /boot/config.txt file and add the following line:


    Then reboot the Pi.

Would a 5.1V 2.5A supply be adequate to power both the Pi and screen?
If a 5.1V 2.5A power supply (like the one with the power switch on the cable sold on this site) would power both, how much would be left for other devices like mice, keyboards, etc.
James Kyle
  • The screen consumes between 455mA and 470mA, so you will have just over 2A to power the Pi and other peripherals, which is enough :)

Will the screen work with retropie,
More specifically will the touchscreen control emulators with a mouse. E.g. scummvm and amiberry?
Graeme Johnson
  • We've not tested it, but I wouldn't see why not as the touch is just an emulated mouse.

Physically disable touchscreen?
Is it possible to install a physical switch (I am thinking on one of the power wires) such that if the switch is "powered off" the screen is disabled and not used by the Pi (thus defaulting to HDMI), but if the switch is "powered on" then it would use the touchscreen? My use case would be a portable RetroPie system with the screen, but the ability to plug into a bigger screen if available.
Is it possible to remove the screen frame?
I want to mount the screen inside a box of a larger project without all the surrounding black frame showing.

The eargerly awaited 7" Official Raspberry Pi Touchscreen Display is finally here! Boasting a neat 800×480 display @ 60fps resolution, and 10 point capacitive touchscreen, this 7" screen for the Raspberry Pi gives users the ability to create all-in-one, integrated projects such as tablets, infotainment systems and embedded projects.

This is the latest V1.1 Board. Please Note. The board is already connected to the screen in this version.

The 800x 480 display connects via an adapter board which handles power and signal conversion.Only two connections to the Pi are required; power from the Pi’s GPIO port and a ribbon cable that connects to the DSI port present on all Raspberry Pi’s. Touchscreen drivers with support for 10-finger touch and an on-screen keyboard are available on the latest Raspbian OS for full functionality without a physical keyboard or mouse.

  • Turn your Raspberry Pi into a touchscreen tablet, infotainment system, or standalone device.
  • Truly Interactive - the latest software drivers will support a virtual ‘on screen’ keyboard, so there is no need to plug in a keyboard and mouse.
  • Make your own ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) devices including a visual display. Simply connect your Raspberry Pi, develop a Python script to interact with the display, and you’re ready to create your own home automation devices with touchscreen capability.
  • A range of educational software and programs available on the Raspberry Pi will be touch enabled, making learning and programming easier on the Raspberry Pi.
  • Raspberry Pi mounting points on the back

Technical Specification:

  • 7” Touchscreen Display.
  • Screen Dimensions: 194mm x 110mm x 20mm (including standoffs)
  • Viewable screen size: 155mm x 86mm
  • Screen Resolution 800 x 480 pixels
  • 10 finger capacitive touch.
  • Connects to the Raspberry Pi board using a ribbon cable connected to the DSI port.
  • Adapter board is used to power the display and convert the parallel signals from the display to the serial (DSI) port on the Raspberry Pi.

N.B. Will require the latest version of Raspbian OS to operate correctly.

Kit Contents:

  • 7” Touchscreen Display
  • Adapter Board
  • DSI Ribbon cable
  • 4 x stand-offs and screws (used to mount the adapter board and Raspberry Pi board to the back of the display
  • 4 x jumper wires (used to connect the power from the Adapter Board and the GPIO pins on the Pi so the 2Amp power is shared across both units)

Please Note. The Raspberry Pi Board and accessories are not included in this kit.
