This backpack features the TFP401 for decoding video, and includes the attached display so its plug-n-play. The TFP401 is a beefy DVI/HDMI decoder from TI.It can take unencrypted video and pipe out the raw 24-bit color pixel data - HDCP not supported! The 7 display is 800x480 resolution, which is just enough to run most software, but still small enough that it can be used in portable or embedded projects without the bulk. You can even power the entire display from a USB port. With the default 7 800x480 display and 150mA backlight current, the current draw is 600mA total. You can reduce that down 400mA by running the backlight at half-brightness (75mA). With the backlight off, the decoder and display itself draws 250mA. If you want more backlight control, there's a PWM input, connect that to your microcontroller or other PWM output and you can continuously dim the backlight as desired. We have two versions, one is video only and one is video+touch.
This version has touch screen capability. The touch screen shows up as a USB mouse so you can use it with any computer, no special drivers needed. In particular, we suggest it for use with single board computers or desktop/laptops! With DVI/HDMI output like the Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black.
You can power the driver over USB as long as your computer can supply 600mA on the USB port, and then feed it video via the HDMI port. Please note the TFP401 decoder chip does not contain a video scaler, it will not resize/shrink video!PLEASE CHECK OUT THE ADAFRUIT TUTORIAL IN THE ADAFRUIT LEARNING SYSTEM FOR ADAFRUIT ITEM ID 2407 ON HOW TO SET UP THE RESOLUTION WHEN USING WITH A RASPBERRY PI!
