In need of a large HDMI touch-screen display that also features low-power consumption for your next project? The Waveshare 7inch Capacitive Touch Screen LCD (B) might be just what you are looking for. The capacitive-touch TFT display features a resolution of 800x480 pixels and is hacker-friendly, featuring breakout pads on the back that allow you to do things like tapping into the USB interface, and adjusting the screen brightness via a PWM signal.
This 7-inch display is Raspbian and Retropi compatible and is completely driver free which makes implementation super easy. When used in conjunction with a Raspberry Pi, five touch-points are supported. Ubuntu, Kali, and Windows 10 IoT are supported as well but feature single-point touch recognition. Windows versions 7-11 are also supported with five-point touch recognition.
Online development resources are available, which include wiring guidance and example code, with additional information being found on the Waveshare Wiki.
