I am experienced embedded HW/SW engineer in my step for creating a company.
I am introducing LCD cape for beaglebone / beaglebone black with capacitive touchscreen.
The LCD is 5" 800x480 from Newhaven Display:
Link: Newhaven Display
You can find it on Mouser or Digikey as well.
24 bit true color with PWM backlight control.
Multitouch capacitive touch screen.
4 user buttons.
Header for adafruit adxl335 accelerometer (not included, supported by Kernel).
Ubuntu with Kernel 3.8 (device tree) support.
Rowboat android with Kernel 3.2 support.
Perfect for your next beaglebone project.
This production will be started regardless of funding goal reach.
The working prototype can be put almost immediately to production.
Every contributor that made the order will receive the board and download link with adapted Kernel 3.8, Ubuntu minimal image, adapted rowboat android image with Kernel 3.2
The package contains:
LCD cape with Newhaven 5" LCD 800x480 mounted in plastic case.
Beaglebone is not included.
Accelerometer is not included and not implemented in Android core. Only at Kernel level. You should adapt the rowboat source by yourself.
Update 02-Jun-2014: Contributors please add shipping perk.
