What is BeadaPanel?

BeadaPanel is a versatile media display. It can playback images and videos in various common format. BeadaPanel comes with a 7" LCD display with a resolution of 800x480 and a 4-wire resistive touch panel. BeadaPanel has up to 16GB/32GB eMMC memory for media storage and playback. BeadaPanel supports USB 2.0 High Speed standard and WiFi communication. BeadaPanel consumes very low power and can be powered by a single Micro-USB cable. BeadaPanel comes with its own ABS bezel, which is easy to integrate into customer products.

Applications

BeadaPanel for Raspberry Pi

In this application, BeadaPanel is used as a monitor/display for Raspberry Pi mini PC. Eenew.jpg

Supported Models and OS

Supported Model

Raspberry Pi A/B/B+/Zero/Zero W/2B/3B/3B+

OS Support

  • Raspbian
  • RetroPie
  • Ubuntu MATE
  • Ubuntu Core
  • CentOS
  • Kali Linux


First time Setup

BeadaPanel will not work automatically when first time plugin to Raspberry Pi. Instead, A beadapanel deamon program should be running on Raspberry Pi to handle the data transmit between two USB peers. Below are procedures to setup this beadapanel deamon.

Pre-requirements
  • A Raspberry Pi mini PC
  • A BeadaPanel display kit
Procedures

1. Power on your Raspberry Pi mini PC
2. Connect BeadaPanel to Raspberry Pi by a Micro USB cable
3. BeadaPanel will be automaticaly recognized as a USB mass storage device by Raspberry Pi

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ lsblk
NAME        MAJ:MIN RM  SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
sda           8:0    0  9.1G  0 disk
├─sda1        8:1    0 43.9M  0 part /media/pi/boot
└─sda2        8:2    0  4.9G  0 part /media/pi/rootfs
mmcblk0     179:0    0  7.4G  0 disk
├─mmcblk0p1 179:1    0 43.9M  0 part /boot
└─mmcblk0p2 179:2    0  7.4G  0 part /
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ ls /media/pi/boot/bpd
bpd

4. Locate and run beadapanel deamon in /media/pi/boot/bpd folder

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo cp /media/pi/boot/bpd/bpd /usr/bin 
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/bpd
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo bpd
BeadaPanel Daemon Ver. 1.0

5. Run beadapanel deamon from booting

$ sudo nano /etc/rc.local -> add new line before "exit 0" with "/usr/bin/bpd &" without quote 
$ sudo reboot


Force Raspberry Pi display through HDMI

In order to let beadapanel deamon program successfully transmit HDMI video data to BeadaPanel, we have to force Raspberry Pi HDMI port work even if no HDMI monitor connected.

Procedures

1. To solve the problem, simply connect to your Raspberry Pi via SSH and modify with your favorite text editor (here we will use nano) the file /boot/config.txt.

2. Note that you will need administrator rights and therefore sudo command (with nano this will give for example sudo nano /boot/config.txt).

3. You should then find within this file the following line (if not, add it at the end):

#hdmi_force_hotplug=1

4. To solve the problem you just have to uncomment (ie remove the sign # at the beginning) the line and save the file (Ctrl + o, Enter, Ctrl + x with nano). Restart your Raspberry Pi and you're done!
5. Further more, for best video performance and experience, we'd better to set Raspberry Pi HDMI port work under same resolution with BeadaPanel's native screen.

hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=87
hdmi_cvt=800 480 60 6 0 0 0

BeadaPanel for NVIDIA Jetson

In this application, BeadaPanel is used as an USB LCD Display + WiFi + Storage 3-IN-1 Companion Kit for NVIDIA Jetson Nano/Xavier/TX1/TX2 Board. Jsmain800x600.jpg

Supported Models and OS

Supported Model

Jetson Nano/Xavier/TX1/TX2

OS Support

Ubuntu 18.04LTS


First time Setup

BeadaPanel will not work automatically when first time plugin to NVIDIA Jetson Dev. board. Instead, A beadapanel deamon program should be running on Raspberry Pi to handle the data transmit between two USB peers. Below are procedures to setup this beadapanel deamon.

Pre-requirements
  • A NVIDIA Jetson Dev. board
  • A BeadaPanel display kit
Procedures

1. Connect NVIDIA Jetson board with a HDMI/DP screen
2. Power on Jetson board
3. Login to Ubuntu desktop
4. Setup automatic login to current user

5. Configure Vino VNC Server

jetson@jetson-desktop:~$ gsettings set org.gnome.Vino prompt-enabled false
jetson@jetson-desktop:~$ gsettings set org.gnome.Vino require-encryption false
jetson@jetson-desktop:~$ gsettings set org.gnome.Vino authentication-methods "['none']"

6. Verify config result in step 5

jetson@jetson-desktop:~$ gsettings list-recursively org.gnome.Vino
org.gnome.Vino notify-on-connect false
org.gnome.Vino alternative-port uint16 5900
org.gnome.Vino disable-background false
org.gnome.Vino use-alternative-port false
org.gnome.Vino icon-visibility 'client'
org.gnome.Vino use-upnp false
org.gnome.Vino view-only false
org.gnome.Vino prompt-enabled false
org.gnome.Vino disable-xdamage false
org.gnome.Vino authentication-methods ['none']
org.gnome.Vino network-interface ''
org.gnome.Vino require-encryption false
org.gnome.Vino mailto ''
org.gnome.Vino lock-screen-on-disconnect false
org.gnome.Vino vnc-password 'amV0c29u'
jetson@jetson-desktop:~$

7. Click on Startup Applications

10. Disconnect HDMI/DP screen
11. Connect BeadaPanel USB screen with Micro USB cable
12. Power on NVIDIA Jetson board
NVIDIA Jetson board will automatically recognize BeadaPanel as a VNC Viewer and display to it as soon as Ubuntu desktop launch.

Connect to WiFi Hostspot

BeadaPanel will not work automatically when first time plugin to Raspberry Pi. Instead, A beadapanel deamon program should be running on Raspberry Pi to handle the data transmit between two USB peers. Below are procedures to setup this beadapanel deamon.

Pre-requirements
  • A Raspberry Pi mini PC
  • A BeadaPanel display kit
Procedures

1. Power on your Raspberry Pi mini PC
2. Connect BeadaPanel to Raspberry Pi by a Micro USB cable
