Raspberry Pi 7″ Touch Screen Installation

A short video showing the installation of the 7″ touch screen display on a Raspberry Pi.

I used a Raspberry Pi2 CPU, I think a Pi3 would be an even better choice with the built-in connectivity.

Touch Screen:

Technical Specifications
7” Touchscreen Display.
Screen Dimensions: 194mm x 110mm x 20mm
View-able screen size: 155mm x 86mm
Screen Resolution 800 x 480 pixels
10 finger capacitive touch
Uses the DSI interface connector for control
I saw a max. current of 0.85A @ 5V while booting and a 0.7A operating current for the combined system.

In the next video, we’ll 3D-print a case for this and make it into a working PiPad, so stay tuned for that…

Be sure to rate, comment and share
And as always, thanks for watching
