DESCRIPTION

Is this not the cutest little display for the Raspberry Pi? It features a 2.8" display with 320x240 16-bit color pixels and a resistive touch overlay. The plate uses the high-speed SPI interface on the Pi and can use the mini display as a console, X window port, displaying images or video etc. Best of all it plugs right in on top!

This updated design fits perfectly onto the Pi Zero, Pi 3, Pi 2 or Model A+, B+, and Pi 4! (Any Pi with a 2x20 connector) Not for use with an old Pi 1 with 2x13 connector. This one also has all 40 pins GPIO pins brought out so you can connect a 40-pin GPIO cable underneath.

The display and touchscreen uses the hardware SPI pins (SCK, MOSI, MISO, CE0, CE1) as well as GPIO #25 and #24. All other GPIO are unused. Since Adafruit had a tiny bit of space, there are 4 slim tactile switches wired to four GPIOs, that you can use if you want to make a basic user interface. For example, you can use one as a power on/off button.

Use it for console access or easily pop up X11 onto the PiTFT for a mini monitor, although it's rather small at 320x240. Instead, we recommend using PyGame or other SDL-drawing programs to write onto the frame buffer.

Raspberry Pi computer and enclosure not included! As of July 27th, 2015 this display comes fully assembled and includes 4 tactile switches soldered on.
