Embedded Board, Touch Screen and QML


  • Qt Champions 2017

    Hi
    I'm trying to have embedded linux board with QML running
    Can you suggest any custom embedded board(TI or RaspPi or Some other board) with touch screen and Qt/QML on top of it ?

    Please note that I don't want to get into trial/error compilation to setup this embedded box. Any off-the-shelf ready board available ?

    i think you should give some more requirements of your needs, like

    • minimum board specs
    • minimum touchscreen size
    • running via X, EGLFS, FB, etc
    • multi touch needed?
    • OpenGL needed or software rendering only?
    • ...

    You can strike Raspberry Pi off the list, then, because to get a decent support for QML it's best to compile Qt yourself (and that involves trial and error). And Pi touch screens do require some setup / drivers, too.



  • @dheerendra The closest I could possibly recommend you is the AR6MXQ-DEV board. As I'm new in here, I'm not sure if posting URL's are allowed in the forum. But here it is, though.

    Regarding this query, though it needs manual OS installation, they have ready-made Ubuntu or Android OS suited for their own board. The installation steps only require the image to be installed to an SD Card.

    Hope this helps. :-)



  • If you need "out of box" solution. Probably the best choice it will be using boot2qt and one of supported boards with supported touchscreen. I'm not sure but raspberry pi with official touchscreen should work.
