Hi, I recently noticed that the pico-pi-imx7 single board computer has the same gpio as a raspberry pi 3.
And my question is the following:
Could you use the vga666 adapter of the raspberry pi3 to be able to take an image on a vga monitor? . The pico-pi-imx7 has no hdmi output, it only has an interface for rgb ttl touch screens.
To use the vga666 addon you need DPI.
3.2. Digital Display Sub-System (DSS) or TTL Interface
The Parallel Display interface of PICO-IMX7 is derived from the eLCDIF subsystem. The eLCDIF is a
general purpose display controller used to drive a wide range of display devices varying in size and
capability. The eLCDIF is designed to support dumb (synchronous 24-bit Parallel RGB interface) and
smart (asynchronous parallel MPU interface) LCD devices.
The block has several major features:
Bus master interface to source frame buffer data for display refresh. This interface can also
be used to drive data for “Smart” displays.
PIO interface to manage data transfers between “Smart” displays and SoC.
8/16/18/24/32 bit LCD data bus support available depending on I/O mux options.
Programmable timing and parameters for MPU, VSYNC and DOTCLK LCD interfaces to
support a wide variety of displays.
ITU-R BT.656 mode (called Digital Video Interface or DVI mode here) including progressiveto-interlace feature and RGB to YCbCr 4:2:2 color space conversion to support 525/60 and
Could someone tell me if it would be viable?
