Here a nice, fully assembled 3.5inch TFT display for your Odroid C2/C1+ (compatible with XU4 when using the Shifter Shield).
This TFT brings you a 480x320 pixels TFT LCD with a resistive touch overlay. Just plug it on top of ODROID-C2/C1+/C0 and you will transform your ODroid into an embedded, highly portable and autonomous plateform.
No need for additional mouse or keyboard... you can drive our own apps from the touch screen.
Even better, the shield had 4 buttons that you can use with your own apps. The buttons are wired to ADC and produce a different voltage depending on the pressed switch. Each switch produce a different voltage that can be read from the filesystem in /sys/class/saradc/ch0 for the C2 (see the official doc for more info and other ODroid platform). For the user coming from Pi plateform, you can also compile the famous WiringPi library wich also works with the ODroid plateforms.
It is also possible to control the backlight from the ODroid plateform via a signal PWM with C1+/C2 (or simple GPIO for XU4). The PWM signal will allow you fine tuning the backlight power and spare power. The backlight can be ajusted with simple shell command.
Finally, you can plug the C2 Clock module on the back of the TFT Shield. So you can easily stay tuned on time even when moving your ODroid plateform outside.
- GPU/VPU Hardware acceleration required OpenGL-ES and Video playback are not supported.
- The frame rate is around 10~15FPS due to slow GPIO toggling speed.
Notice that you will need an official ODroid Ubuntu image to configure it.
You can simply download the Kernel updates (via dist-upgrade) and configure your ODROID for this display shield.
For each order, you will receive a display screen. The ODroid, RTC Clock and other items are not included.
Shifter Shield required for XU4
As mentionned by HardKernel, you need to use the XU4 Shifter Shield to use this display.
Notice that Backlight PWM control is not possible throught the Shifter shield.
