Is raspberry pi having any inbuilt display screen?


Date: 09 Dec 2014   Posted By: Muddassir     Group: Computers & Smart Devices    Category: Laptops & Tablets   

I know raspberry pi is the smallest computer. Now my question is that does raspberry pi has inbuilt screen on its backside or do I need to connect a monitor every time to use raspberry pi? If there exists no display screen, can I add an external small touchscreen to raspberry pi ?

Are you confused whether the world smallest computer Raspberry pi has inbuilt screen or not? Read the expert answers and know whether raspberry pi comes with inbuilt display or can we connect an external one to it?

A Raspberry Pi is just a small motherboard with a processor, RAM, GPU in-built. Its a full fletched tiny computer in itself. However, you would still need to connect it to an external display since it does not have a display of its own.

The Raspberry Pi comes with an HDMI port on the circuit board which you can use to connect to an external monitor. If you have a monitor that supports DVI input, you would need an HDMI to DVI adapter. Similarly, if your monitor supports a VGA input, you would need an HDMI to VGA adapter.

What kind of a touchscreen display do you have? Does it have any input port that can be connected to an HDMI cable with or without the above adapters? If yes, then you can definitely connect the said touchscreen display to the Raspberry Pi.
