Raspberry pi b+ 13" Screen

Tue Jul 29, 2014 11:29 am

Hi guys!
This is my first post, so if something is wrong please tel me :)
I need a NON-touch screen display, 13", to attach to the raspberry pi b+ for a prototype.
I was looking for some monochrome display, but i think i can manage this also via linux settings.

Any suggestion?

Thank you!

Hem...no idea :)
It must be the most thin connector, and the most low voltage as possible.. but I'm open to every solution, so, if you have any suggestion I'll listen to you.

Thank you!

I was going to use this...

If the foundation doesn't hurry up with their screen. While not 13" (and low res) it is quite price competitive for an hdmi screen.

The answer is finding an ebay seller who offers a help service with their LVDS products and see if they may have something suitable :D

You cannot look at connector alone and assume that whatever device will be compatible. 2 devices can have the same connector but be destroyed if not connected to what they were intended.
You MUST look at connector AND the design specification. If you are lucky you may find a standardized design spec like LVDS.

Finnaly it has arrived!

If I'm not wrong, I need to connect to the screen board a power adapter with 12v to make the screen work. right?

I bought this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/HDMI-VGA-DVI-AU ... 3a89e7777c

If the screen has DVI-D in then a simple DVI-D to HDMI cable will connect it to your RPi.

The screen interface board shown in your ebay link has a HDMI input, so all you need is a HDMI cable.
