Yes, this is an adorable miniature television! The visible display measures only 4.3" diagonal, the TFT comes with a NTSC/PAL driver board.

Product Description

The display is very easy to use - simply connect 4.5-15VDC to the red and black wires, then connect a composite video source to the yellow and black wire. Voila, a television display! There's a little button to adjust the LED backlight brightness (5 levels) - there is no other adjustment available but we found that the color and contrast look great right out of the box.

To demonstrate it, photos were taken with the display connected to a Raspberry Pi, but it will also work connected to any analog composite-video output such as a YBox or Propeller w/Video out. It will not work with a device that only outputs VGA, HDMI or any other digital video signal.

A power adapter is not included you will want a 9VDC 1 Amp or 12VDC 1 Amp adapter, (MCM part #82-11321 recommended). Even though the display specifies 12VDC it works from 5V to 12V DC without problems.

Please note, these miniature displays are very delicate and require care to avoid ripping the delicate flex connector. These are best used by electronics geeks who have experience and are comfortable working with delicate electronic components. WE CANNOT REPLACE DAMAGED DISPLAYS if you are not careful and rip the flex connector!
