Hello, I represent Resin.io, and we’re evaluating the BPI-R2 as for a product we are building. We’re planning to order a few thousand devices, but we were counting on using the MIPI DSI interface present on the board to connect a display
I’ve bought the BPI 7" LCD module mentioned in the documents, but apparently that doesn’t work on the latest Ubuntu release.
So I have two questions:
Is there any way to make it work?
Is there a timeline for when this will be supported on the R2?
Hi @garywang, thanks for the reply. It is mandatory because we need to use a 7" MIPI DSI touchscreen, the HDMI touchscreens cost 3-4 times as much.
And we can’t get the HDMI display to output to any other resolution besides 1920x1080, xrandr always returns an error, whereas our display needs to run at 1024x768
We have to make a final decision on the board we’re going to use within the week, and the production will start on early March, so this will need to be done by February. Would that be a possible scenario? If you know MIPI DSI will not be ready by then, it would be nice to know to move on.
