5" 800x480 RPi Compatible Display

Part Number: CFAM800480A0-050R

This is a 5-inch, 800x480 HDMI TFT LCD display with a resistive touch screen and control board with HDMI interface. This display has a 40-pin connector on board (CON4), that is a pass-through of the RPi's 40-pin connector – so that you don't lose any of the RPi's functionality. This display is small and compact and is easy to use with a Raspberry Pi, a Mini-Computer or an embedded system that has HDMI output.

This device's touch-screen drivers are not supported by the Android OS
