NHD-7.0CTP-CAPE-N | BeagleBone Black Cape with TFT Display | 7" Sunlight Readable Display | Capacitive Touchscreen | EEPROM with On-Board Dip Switches | Developing with Android and Linux

Engineered in Elgin IL USA, we designed this BeagleBone Cape to be a perfect fit for our 7.0" TFT displays and upgraded it with the sunlight readable NHD-7.0-800480EF-ASXN#-CTP display model. With capacitive 5-point multi-touch functionality and 800x480 resolution screen, this cape works seamlessly while developing with operating systems like Android and Linux. It includes an on-board dip switch for configuring EEPROM and secondary headers for additional cape connections. In addition to the secondary cape slot, we added four 3.5mm mounting holes that are compatible with standard M3 screws, a reset button, write protection pins, PWM backlight control, and an LED power indicator. With this cape we’ve made it easy to take your design process from concept to reality. When paired with the BeagleBone Black board (sold separately by you'll have everything you need to plug-in and start developing.
