The BeagleBone-HDMI Cape by Embest is designed to provide an HDMI or LCD interface for the original BeagleBone board (not BeagleBone Black). This board features a standard HDMI connector that can be connected to a monitor through an HDMI cable. The cape also provides an alternative LCD interface, and can be ordered with a 4.3-inch or 7-inch LCD (see below). The board has a cutout so that the BeagleBone's Ethernet connector, PMIC expansion header, reset button and user LEDs all remain available. The mounting holes line up with the BeagleBone's, so you can use long screws to mount everything together securely.
The picture below shows this HDMI Cape mounted on a BeagleBone board.
A BeagleBone board is not included.
