The Newhaven Display 7" BeagleBone Cape product line features three Capes. Each one is mounted to either a Standard, Premium, or Sunlight-Readable 7-inch Newhaven Display TFT and are designed for use with a BeagleBone Black board (created & sold separately by beagleboard.org). Engineered and assembled in Elgin, IL USA, these new Capes make display prototype developing easy for both current and aspiring BeagleBone users. The simple "plug and play" structure allows you to get right to development – even with Android or ...SEE MORE...Linux operating systems.
The 7" BeagleBone Capes' use of BeagleBone development technology means the user can utilize the BeagleBone community and open source resources to facilitate the design process. In addition to the BeagleBone community resources, Newhaven Display provides Operating System images (OS images) written specifically for use with the 7" Cape's featured TFT display. The Capes also have a secondary Cape slot present to supplement your BeagleBone development with any other Capes you may need. The amazing BeagleBone community, along with these specially designed Capes, creates a realm of endless possibilities.
The new 7" BeagleBone Capes are paired with various Newhaven Display TFT options. The featured display options are an NHD-7.0-800480EF-ATXL#-CTP, an NHD-7.0-800480EF-ASXV#-CTP, or an NHD-7.0-800480EF-ASXN#-CTP. These part numbers represent Newhaven Display's Standard, Premium and Sunlight-Readable 7" TFT technology. All of the displays that come with these 7" BeagleBone Capes feature an 800x480 pixel resolution, 24-bit true color, as well as an integrated full-featured capacitive touch panel.
The sizable 7-inch display area on the TFT provides ample real-estate for touch interactivity. The capacitive touch panel that comes standard on the 7" BeagleBone Capes supports 5-point simultaneous touch input and gestural functionality. By integrating touch technology with the BeagleBone Black board, the user can take full advantage of the built-in touch capabilities of operating systems such as Linux or (especially) Android. This means you can begin touch-interfacing with the display in just a few steps by utilizing our available OS images designed specifically for these Capes. The TFT display and touch panel bring a lot of functionality to the 7" BeagleBone Capes, but the real power lies in the brilliant design of the Capes themselves.
The on-board hardware of the 7" BeagleBone Capes was designed to optimize usability with the BeagleBone Black. There are secondary headers to attach additional Capes if desired, enabling the expansion of the product development. Mounting the display is made easy by the four 3.5mm mounting holes compatible with standard M3 screws. A reset button is added allowing for easy access to BeagleBone Black's reset function covered up by the Cape. There's also on-board dip switch for configuring EEPROM – customize the memory however you see fit. A power LED indicator and write protection pins are integrated as well as PWM backlight control. These features make the 7" Capes an ideal companion to the BeagleBone Black.
Leave behind complicated development setups for a compact and powerful 7" BeagleBone Cape. It's a high quality 7-inch Newhaven Display TFT together with a full-featured custom BeagleBone Cape in one neat package. Simply plug the Cape into your BeagleBone Black and open up the world of possibilities that awaits.
Effortless touch development is obtained with Newhaven Display's new Arduino Shields customized for their 4.3" capacitive or resistive touch TFT display line. Available in six display variations, these shields are ready to mate with some of Arduino's most commonly used development boards. Newhaven Display's 4.3" Arduino Shields are designed to ...SEE MORE... be a simple compact solution for developing with touchscreen capable TFT displays.
The 4.3" Arduino Shields are available in six different models. Each shield features a 480x272 resolution TFT in the form of a Sunlight Readable, Premium (MVA) or Standard LCD display type. In addition to these three different display types, there are two different touchscreen options to choose from: 5-point multi-touch capacitive or 4-wire resistive touch. These shields feature the FT801 (capacitive touch) or the FT800 (resistive touch) video engine by FTDI which may be used to develop and demonstrate the functionality of the FT80X IC's and Newhaven's 4.3" touchscreen TFT displays. A bonus of these shields is the PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) which is the type of digital signal used to control the dimming of backlight LEDs. Since the Arduino Development boards are powerful tools, a micro SD slot also comes as a built-in standard allowing additional storage space for more complex code. This eliminates any memory constraints of the Arduino board. Additionally, the shields generate audio output with an on board power amplifier.
Engineered in Elgin Illinois, these 4.3" Arduino Shields were designed by Newhaven engineers for classic Arduino boards such as UNO, Mega and Leonardo. Each Arduino board connects directly to the back of the shield, greatly reducing software and hardware development time and simplifying the design process. No extra controller boards or messy cables are required, providing a much faster and effortless experience developing with a touchscreen TFT. By utilizing Arduino's vastly growing community, engineers can take advantage of shared code developed by other engineers as well as code created by Newhaven's engineers. To help engineers get started with the 4.3" Arduino Shields, Newhaven Display shares a repository of example code to get any engineer up and running as soon as the product arrives. Additionally, the open source hardware and software design will save engineers time and money. With all of these unique features and more, the 4.3" Arduino Shields are the best and quickest method for developing with touch TFTs.
