We are currently designing a new consumer product that will use a cell phone touch screen for the user control interface. The LCD we have chosen uses MIPI DSI for the connection.
We had intended to drive it with a Raspberry Pi but have since learned that Broadcom makes it impossible for the Pi GPU to drive any screen using DSI other than the Pi branded screens (overpriced / poor quality).
Because of this, we have abandoned Raspberry Pi as an option and are currently evaluating SOM options that could drive the LCD. Before we get too far down a new path we want to make sure that what we are trying to do is possible and that we don’t run into any other walls.
I would really appreciate any insight you might have in regards to driving a lcd cell phone screen using a SOM, through DSI.
Thanks in Advance,
