Topic: Arduino Due - Compatibility with HDMI? (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

Hello, i m on a project for my diploma.I have an Arduino Due and intend to connect it with a picoprojector.Generally,some data which are proccessed in the Due board,will be driven to the picoprojector.So i m asking...Is the "Arduino Due" compatible with hdmi output?Or at least vga output (for cheaper picoprojectors)
If yes,do i need libraries/shields for it?
If no,what alternative options there are?
Thanks!

HDMI output is far beyond the capability of the Due unfortunately.

I've used my VGA library on a normal-sized projector and it worked fine. I haven't got a picoprojector to try it on though. It can be used to generate VGA signals or PAL/NTSC, if the picoprojector has VGA or composite inputs it should work fine. See this thread:

Due VGA library - http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,150517.0.html

Yeah i ve seen this and i 've downloaded the library already.So ''due'' doesnt support hdmi...Alright.Thanks a lot for the info!It s a pity though cuz the board is a very good piece of work.

Aristomenis,

If you're set on HDMI, you could look at using a Raspberry Pi, or Beaglebone Black; both of which are reasonably priced, run Linux, and have an on-board micro-hdmi output.

Yes,i have a raspberry here too.My teacher informed me about the beagleboard also...Damn all these stuff are so interesting,i gotta use them all :P
