Elecrow has announced on his Twitter profile the launch of a new 5″ HDMI display with resistive touch screen designed for the Raspberry Pi boards, and whose main feature is to support backlight control over GPIO 11 in order to lower power consumption.

The resistive touch and backlight control functions will only work with a Raspberry Pi model B, 2B, 3B, or 3B+, and potentially Raspberry Pi compatible boards such as Tinker Board or Rock64, but you’d need to carefully check the pins used on the RPI header and potentially modify the software.

Features and specifications include:

  • HDMI display
  • Good touch response
  • Large viewing angle
  • Fast response time
  • Support backlight control alone
  • Not only for Raspberry Pi
  • Not only for mini-PCs, it can work as a computer monitor
  • 5 inch TFT Resistive touch screen display, 800×480 Resolution
  • HDMI input
  • Usb touch and power, 5V@1A
  • Touch: 4-wire resistive touch
  • Lcd driver IC: ILI9486L
  • Refresh rate:60HZ
  • Lcd Size :11mm*77.93mm
  • Weight:175g
