PiTFT Plus 320×240 2.8″ TFT + Resistive Touchscreen – Pi 2 and Model A+ / B+

Is this not the cutest little display for the Raspberry Pi? It features a 2.8″ display with 320×240 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 spots for optional 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 320×240. Instead, we recommend using PyGame or other SDL-drawing programs to write onto the frame buffer.

Raspberry Pi computer and enclosure not included! This display comes as a Mini Kit, some light soldering is required to attach the 40-pin connector included to the PCB. Soldering iron and solder is not included! Check out our detailed tutorial on how to play videos, display images, and otherwise customize your PiTFT.

Is this not the cutest little display for the Raspberry Pi? It features a 2.8″ display with 320×240 16-bit color pixels and a capacitive touch overlay. That’s right, instead of a resistive touchscreen, which requires a fingernail or stylus, you can now use a fingerpad. The screen looks much nicer, with a black bezel and glass overlay.

The display and touchscreen uses the hardware I2C Pins (SDA & SCL), SPI pins (SCK, MOSI, MISO, CE0) as well as GPIO #25 and #24. All other GPIO are unused and you can still share the I2C pins with sensors, LED drivers, etc. Since we had a tiny bit of space, there’s 4 spots for optional slim tactile switches wired to four GPIOs, that you can use if you want to make a basic user interface.
