GPIO -> Screen

Tue Dec 22, 2015 12:31 am

Hey guys, I have a screen that will be beside of the raspberry, so I don't want to use a HDMI cable.
Can I connect to the screen with the GPIO?

Cheers :D

Hello

the screen which you have shown in the picture cannot be connected to gpio

incase you want a screen to be connected to a gpio you can have various options from below website

also they have optional board to have the screen beside the pi through gpio

Maybe you could use a connector like this one: http://shop.cyntech.co.uk/collections/h ... -connector

If you really wanted to connect to the GPIO, you could use Gert's VGA666 adapter as seen here on Raspberry Pi Spy and plug that into the VGA input.

You can get a similar shield pre-built from Deal Extreme.

Thanks guys, but they never ship to Brazil :(
I have just find for this in my town, but I couldn't find.
So I have to buy in Ebay and wait 2-3 months.
I forgot to say, that have some others pins too, in the board.
Have this group of pins: A group of 4, a group of 5, of 6 and of 12.

Seems to be the same board as http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Tontec-7 ... 70139.html
You can see the purpose of the connectors.

No way you can use GPIO with that (apart from using a VGA666 board)
