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 Model A+, B+, or Pi 2! Works just like the Model B version, but now matches the outline of the Raspberry Pi 2 and Model B+. It also has all 40 pins GPIO pins brought out so you can connect a 40-pin GPIO cable underneath. Now that it's the same outline as a Pi 2/B+ it fits well on top of a Pi in our Raspberry Pi Enclosure base.
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 we had a tiny bit of space, there's 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. See below for the link to get the optional tact switches, they're not included.
Use it for console access or easily pop up X11 onto the PiTFT for a mini monitor, although its 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. Check out our detailed tutorial on how to play videos, display images, and otherwise customize your PiTFT.
