Good day everyone,

as it is possible (at least there's a probable go) to use a MIMO USB touch display there's the next question coming up: I'd like to install the LP in a flush mounted housing inside a sand-lime brickstone wall. The dimensions are approx. 240mm x 280mm x 100mm.
The LP should act as a signage station for my home automation system.
- Are there any thermal problems to be expected?
- Is there any advice regarding cooling (i.e. attach copper heatsink, if yes where (front/back/both), active cooling device...)

I highly appreciate any suggestions/hints!

Regards,

Joerg
