USB Monitor

Drive an extra display and PCAP touch from one USB port!

Introducing the new USB monitor kit from Review Display Systems



One free USB port is all that is needed to drive an extra display and touch with the new USB display and touch driver board from RDS. Two versions are available the 7”, 1024 x 600 and the 10.1” 1280 x 800 both of which come with the option of a PCAP touch sensor and all operating from ONE USB cable.

  • Audio input for remote applications requiring sound is available
  • Power over USB for standard brightness
  • Kit, panel mount or chassis mount options
  • Alternative display size and custom integration available.

The kit comprises an RDS custom-designed PCB with links to either the 7 inches or 10.1-inch screen, along with a connection to a USB port. The kit is designed to make it easy to design the boards and panel into any custom chassis.

The Elite-10.1 is an innovative and cost-effective solution when you have a requirement for an additional display or HMI input device. The system features a 10.1-inch TFT panel display and bonded PCAP touch solution all driven over a single USB connection. This approach allows for quick installation; simply plug into a free USB port and download and install the driver and away you go. The OEM design allows quick and simple installation into your system with the gasket supplied. Further options of both a chassis mount and panel mount are under development.


This Elite-10.1 USB touch screen display needs only one USB cable connection for:


  • Power (350cd/m² panels only, high bright options will require the touch screen interface)
  • Display and video data


Application areas include remote monitors, service screens, additional HMI points and other display solutions.


Our innovative single control board supports the display interface, power interface and the optional PCAP touch solution.


Typically, designs would need two or three boards to achieve this.

The single control board integrates:


  • Display interface
  • Touch interface
  • USB power control
  • Backlight power and brightness control
  • Audio

OS drivers for all common platforms are available including


Windows (7/8/8.1/10), Mac-Os, android, chrome-book and


Ubuntu under the x86 chipset.


This DisplayLink™ based solution eases the development timescales and costs for either primary or secondary displays for x86 Windows and Linux environments.


The 10.1” screen is available with or without PCAP. A 7” version is also available. Chassis mount versions and custom solutions are available on request.
