TFP401 HDMI/DVI Decoder for 40-Pin TTL Non-Touch Screen
This modest-sized board connects to a 5 or 7” TTL screen and can also be used as a DVI/HDMI decoder.
TFP401 DVI/HDMI decoder: low consumption and a small size, but an excellent definition
The DVI/HDMI decoder by Adafruit Industries is designed around the TFP401 by Texas Instruments. A decoder capable of reading all your HDMI/DVI videos and transcribing them in 24-bit colour pixel data on a TTL screen.
You can use this board simply as a driver for your TTL screen, or as a decoder. It’s equipped with a USB port to connect your microcontroller (Raspberry Pi or Beaglebone Black) and has a very interesting power consumption for designers of small projects:
- 500 mA max. with 5” TTL screen and backlight running
- 370 mA with 5” TTL screen and backlight running at half-brightness
- 250 mA with 5” TTL screen and backlight off
This board is so small you can make it easily disappear in your screen’s enclosure.
