1280x800 10.1" HDMI TFT LCD

Part Number: CFAM1280800A1-101TN

Designed specifically to mount to a Raspberry Pi, this 10.1" IPS HDMI TFT display mounts to the RPi's 40-pin header, but communicates using HDMI. The 40-pin header is passed through enabling all of the RPi's GPIOs to be used on the CON6 connector on the display.

This full-color TFT display is super-sharp and offers an HDMI input for quick integration. Plug in a fire stick and make this display into your entertainment console. Plug in a compute stick and you've got an inexpensive handheld computer.

This display does not include a touchscreen. Check out the capacitive 10.1" Touchscreen IPS TFT HDMI Display, and 10.1" HDMI Resistive Touch TFT versions if you need a touchscreen.

Add our HDMI to HDMI Converter to quickly attach it to your RPi. We also recommend an additional power supply for powering the backlight when controlling it via a Raspberry Pi.

The following needs to be added to the config.txt file:
hdmi_cvt 1280 800 60 6 0 0 0

The following line needs to be commented:

hdmi_group=2: This sets the HDMI group to 2, which defines the video mode.
hdmi_mode=87: This sets the HDMI mode to 87, which is a custom video mode.
hdmi_cvt 1280 800 60 6 0 0 0: This generates a custom video mode with a resolution of 1280x800 at 60Hz refresh rate. The parameters after hdmi_cvt define the width, height, refresh rate, aspect ratio, margins, and interlacing.
Commenting out 'dtoverlay=vc4-kms-v3d' ensures that it is not processed by the system and to prioritize the custom HDMI settings defined above.
