This is in continuation with my earlier post on unboxing 8 inch Waveshare LCD display Here we will see how we can connect 8 inch Waveshare LCD display to Raspberry Pi.
Use the 15PIN FPC cable to connect the DSI interface of the 8inch DSI LCD to the DSI interface of the Raspberry Pi.
For ease of use, you can attach the Raspberry Pi to the back of the 8inch DSI LCD fixed with screws, and assemble the copper pillars. (The Raspberry Pi GPIO interface will power the LCD through the pogo pin).
Note – If you are using latest Raspberry PI OS then you do not need to do any additional configuration to enable DSI display. It will automatically detect the DSI display.
Below video will show how to connect.
Do let me know if you have any issues in connecting the display.
