7 inch Touch Screen on RPi

Mon Mar 09, 2015 5:13 am


I think I got myself way over my head here. I am working on a project that requires a larger touchscreen so I purchased a 7 inch TFT touchscreen from Adafruit. I also ordered a RA8875 I had no clue that what I was getting myself into.

Can someone help point me in the right direction on how to get this working?

Can you return the RA8875 ? It is intended for use with Arduino, rather than the Pi.

Get the TFP401 HDMI/DVI Decoder to 40-Pin TTL Breakout - With Touch.
This needs hdmi, micro-usb and the display. Should work straight out of the box.

Return to “Interfacing (DSI, CSI, I2C, etc.)”
