Hifiberry DAC+ Touchscreen possible?


I own a Raspberry Pi B+ with a Hifiberry DAC+ and its running with Volumio that’s great so far.

But, I would like to add a touchscreen, PiTFT - 320x240 2.8" TFT+Touchscreen http://www.adafruit.com/product/1601
(or similar product from China)

Is this combination DAC+ and PiFTF possible?
Are there Volumisten who have this configuration up and running?

(I couldn’t find a “DIY Project” with this combination…)



I have done some research:

Hifiberry DAC+


PiTFT - Assembled 320x240 2.8" TFT+Touchscreen for Raspberry Pi


When you compare these specs the conclusion will be that GPIO #18 cant be used on the PiTFT. This is a spot on the PiTFT for an OPTIONAL switch so that must be no problem.

But what bothers me is the power consumption!!

The question is which power rail is the PiTFT using and will it affect the DAC?

So when you have this setup please post your experience and confirm this combination is working (or not)?



I am also very interested in this.
Please keep us updated.

I’ll wait for some updates too.

Im not 100% certain of this but the board behind the TFT should be 3 and 5v compatible. Meaning it can use both 3v or 5v for input signals and power.

I’ve also found the complete manual of the PiTFT. The complete schematic is in it both for the Pi-1 and Pi-B+/2 versions.

That is a completely different solution and has nothing to do with the question from the OP.
And PLEASE don’t just post a link always add information.
