Arbor 50C

In stock

Arbor 50C is an expansion board for any Overo COM with support for 5.0" Newhaven Capacitive multi-touch screen, Ethernet, USB and audio.

IMPORTANT: This version of the Arbor Board is deprecated because it mates only with Overo COMs using the discontinued AVX connectors, manufactured before January 2020.

Overo COMs manufactured since January 2020 use Panasonic connectors. If interested in a version of the Arbor with a Panasonic connector, contact us.
