Re: Two extra connectors

Tue May 08, 2012 1:50 am

Hi all!

At one point I saw someone post something about what the two extra connectors on the Pi were for, but I can't seem to find that post. (Maybe just wasn't agressive enough about searching!)

The ones I am talking about are the one right next to the Broadcomm chip (and the Pi logo) and between the HDMI and LAN connectors.

I do remember that one of them is a display interface, but can't remember any of the specifics. (I want to research possible displays to connect there.)

TIA!

Everything you want to know can be found at http://elinux.org/RPi_Hardware

However there's no GPU-side drivers for the DSI or CSI interfaces yet, so these slots are currently unusable.

Thanks for the info and especially the heads up that there are no drivers at the present time!
