Screen compatibility

2 people are following

Hi guys,

 

I am about to buy my first Raspberry pi to display my CPU and GPU temperature.

I wanted to show this on a small display (128x32 px, GPIO), but I'm not sure if this really works with the screen size and the possibly missing drivers(?).

Here is a link for the display: https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B07BDFXFRK/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A1X7QLRQH87QA3&th=1

Maybe someone has done this before and can tell me if this works without problems or if I should look for another display.

 

Thank you and best regards :)

In addition to that: is there a list with which gpio screens the Mobros system is working for sure?

Hi @TaRa 

I don't know whether the specific display you posted would work, but I generally would not advice to use such a low resolution screen

The smallest displays we regularly use ourselves are normally 3.5 inch

There is currently no official list of supported or tested screens. We already talked about creating one, but just haven't gotten around to do it 😅

However, I can tell you from personal use, that these displays have worked for me:

but in general, all displays where drivers for the Raspberry Pi  are available should also be usable with our image
