LeMaker Guitar Review @ Mikronauts.com

Good news!

I just read on the LeMaker forum that the connectors are for the 40 pin flex cables like on the Banana Pi & Pro.

I based my earlier report on the schematic showing 42 pin connectors, as they listed the solder tabs as well.

Apparently the Banana Pi Camera and the 7″ Banana Pro LCD is compatible with the Guitar Base Board. (The 3.5″ and 5″ displays are not compatible as they are not LVDS displays)

Today I look at EastRising’s 480×272 TFT LCD module with an HDMI interface board, and take it for a test drive…
