To connect your Raspberry Pi 2 to a screen you just need an HDMI port but what if you want a small portable screen? A small screen can be easily embedded into a project and is also easy to power using a USB port of the device. This DIY will show you how to connect an Adafruit HDMI 5″ display backup to the Raspberry Pi 2.
You start with updating your Micro SD card ad installing the latest version of Windows 10 IoT Core for the Pi. You can find the link in the source blog. Modify the config.txt file by finding the drive associated with the Micro SD card. This will configure the HDMI output of the Raspberry Pi, making it compatible with the Adafruit display. Once you’re done, reboot your Pi, connect the HDMI cable and Micro USB cable.
There is a chance, that your screen won’t work in the first go, because it requires more current. You can increase this too. Get detailed instructions on the blog, again. And, you really are done.
Now, go ahead and give this a try.
