UPDATED TO INCLUDE THE PI 2 – Adafruit PiTFT 3.5″ Touch Screen for Raspberry Pi tutorial

Is this not the cutest, little display for the Raspberry Pi? It features a 3.5″ display with 480×320 16-bit color pixels and a resistive touch overlay, but is only slightly larger than our popular original. 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!

It’s designed to fit nicely onto the Pi Model A or B but also works perfectly fine with the Model B+ as long as you don’t mind the PCB overhangs the USB ports by 5mm.

Uses the hardware SPI pins (SCK, MOSI, MISO, CE0, CE1) as well as GPIO #25 and #24. GPIO #18 can be used to PWM dim the backlight if you like. All other GPIO are unused. There’s a 2×13 header on the bottom, you can connect a standard Pi GPIO cable to it to use any of the other pins ask you like

NewImage

Best of all, it comes fully assembled and ready to plug into your Pi! You can use this as a display for running the X interface, or pygame. You can also have an HDMI display seperately connected.
