what's the "source" means? the signal source or source code?

It's RGB interface LCD, and can be transfer to LVDS/HDMI/VGA.

I have a pi zero but lichee is new to me, how do they compare?

author
%E6%89%8D%E6%B3%BD%E5%90%B4 made it!(author)2017-03-06

Raspberry Pi Zero is bigger, hdmi output, more ram;

Lichee Pi Zero is much smaller(almost SD-sized), LCD output, less ram.

Lichee suit for both DIY and production.

thanks for your reply, sounds like the rpi zero is a bit better for most uses, though I can see the lcd connection makes the lichee best for this use
