The 5" Display w/ Resistive Touch and Mini Driver - 800x480 HDMI is a cute little 5" TFT display with WVGA 800x480 resolution and it has a resistive touchscreen overlay. And yes it comes with an equally cute little driver board and USB-enabled 40-pin to 50-pin touchscreen adapter board. The screen itself is commonly seen in consumer electronics such as miniature TVs, GPSs, handheld games, car displays, etc. It comes with a 40-pin connector that has eight red, eight green, and eight blue parallel pins for 24-bit color capability.
The driver board has a HDMI input for Raspberry Pi, BeagleBoard Black and other computers. HDMI is the best quality output available so you'll get a great looking display. The display is very easy to use - simply connect the USB power cable to 5V power supply that can provide 500mA and then connect a digital video source to one of the HDMI port. Voila, a display.
The touchscreen controller shows up as a plain 'HID Mouse' device. Works with any computer, just plug a mini B cable from the touch adapter to the computer USB port. There's a little wired PCB with little buttons that let you enter a menu system for adjusting brightness, color and contrast. It tries to auto-detect which input you have and switches to that one or you can 'select' from the menu keypad which to display.
