Shenzhen Xunlong Software has released a 10.1-inch LCD touchscreen for the company’s Orange Pi 4 single board computer powered by a Rockchip RK3399 hexa-core Cortex-A72/A53 processor.
The MIPI DSI display is based on Ilitek ILI9881c panel controller supported in mainline Linux, offers 1280×800 resolution, and besides working with the original Orange Pi 4, it’s also compatible with Orange Pi 4B (with AI accelerator) and the more recent Orange Pi 4 LTS SBC launched earlier this year.
10.1-inch LCD touchscreen specifications:
- Display Controller – Ilitek ILI9881C (See PDF datasheet)
- 10.1-inch panel size
- 1280×800 resolution @ up to 60Hz, with 16.7 million colors
- Luminance – 250 cd/m2 (or nit)
- Backlight – 27x white LEDs
- Brightness control with PWM
- 10-point multi touchscreen
- Host interface – MIPI DSI
- Active area – 216.58 x 135.36 mm
- Outline dimensions – 228.6 x 143 x 2.7 mm
- Weight – TBD
- Temperature Range – Operating – 0 to 50°C, storage: -10 to 60°C
The Orange Pi 4 is connected to the display through a flat cable inserted into the “Orange Pi RK LCD v1.1” board, and at this time there’s no enclosure so mounting or the case would have to be able by the users. Since the ILI9881C controller is supported in Linux, it should work pretty much out of the box, but Shenzhen Xunlong Software only mentions the Android 8.1 LCD image in the wiki for Orange Pi 4. All marketing photos show the MIPI display running Orange Pi OS, but it is still marked as “Coming soon”…
If you already own an Orange Pi 4 board, the display is available for $59 plus shipping, or alternatively, the company also offers a bundle with the 10.1-inch LCD touchscreen and Orange Pi 4 LTS SBC with 4GB RAM for $131.90 not including shipping and taxes.
