Display not coming up on Ultra96



I received the Ultra96 board mid of this week. I have tried to connect the USB Keyboard, Mouse and the monitor to the board and I tried booting from the SD card with the default image. I am using an Amazon mini DP to HDMI converter cable to connect my monitor to the board. I could see that my keyboard is working fine. Mouse is also powering up okay. However, I do not see anything on my display. If I open the web page ( after the I connect to the board using WiFi, the web page shows up fine as described.

I tried downloading a new image from the links provided and copied it to the SD card. The response is still the same.

I will try changing the cable and see if it resolves the issue. In the meanwhile, I would like to know if I have missed out anything.

Thanks & Best Regards,

The key is that you find an ACTIVE miniDP-to-HDMI adapter. All of the inexpensive ones that I have seen are passive, and they will not work. We have validated at least 3 Active adapters/cables which are highlighted on this post:



Hi Bryan,

Thanks for the info!

I will order and try one of the active miniDP-HDMI adapters.
