5-inch 720x1280 Compute Module TFT

Part Number: CFA050A0-PI-MBNT

Are you a software developer looking for a turnkey hardware solution? This product is the perfect solution for you. With a 5-inch, full color, IPS, 720x1280 resolution TFT display and easy integration with a Raspberry Pi CM4 or other compatible compute module, you can quickly have a very powerful, compact, robust and versatile computing or Human Machine Interface (HMI) module.

The module's 40-pin header allows standard Pi HATs to be plugged in. The module additionally includes an expansion header with USB, Ethernet, PCIe, USB, and additional GPIOs for daughter boards or cables to be used. With the potential to utilize 32 separate GPIOs, PCIe, USB, and Ethernet, the possibilities are endless. For additional technical detail, refer to our CFA050_PI_M guide.
