Official RPi display LCD panel replace

Mon May 07, 2018 12:35 pm

Does anyone know, what type of interface using in official RPi display LCD panel ?
Is there possibility to replace this panel to another one, smaller size, for examle, using DSI interface board from official display ?
Only i find is there a 24-bit 40-pin RGB interface.
If there another 4 - 5 inch LCD panel using same interface ?

Only the official 7" screen can be used in the DISPLAY (DSI) port on the RPi.

There's no publically available documents on the RPF Official Display or the VC4 interface. So I think you're out of luck.

Even if you match the interface you won't be able to configure the different screen parameters.
