UPDATED PRODUCT – Pimoroni HyperPixel 4.0″ Hi-Res Display for Raspberry Pi


As of September 19, 2018, we are now selling the 4.0″ version of this display.

Pimoroni’s HyperPixel features a 4.0″ display with 800×480 18-bit color pixels and a capacitive touch overlay, making it more sensitive and responsive than a resistive touch display. The plate uses the high speed DPI 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 – So easy!

The DPI interface is super fast, and has speed-optimizations just like HDMI, but it uses just about every pin on the Pi so it is a challenge to use this and also connect sensors, add-ons, device, etc to the Pi. You should stick to devices that interface with USB rather than the GPIO header.

This HyperPixel 4.0″ is designed to fit nicely onto the Raspberry Pi Zero, Pi 3, Pi 2 or Model A+ / B+ (any Pi with a 2×20 connector). Not for use with the old Pi 1 with 2×13 connectorIf you’d like to use a 3.5″ display with the original Pi A or Pi B, check out the SPI-based PiTFT 3.5″

Everything comes fully assembled, so there’s no soldering required! The display secures to the HyperPixel PCB via a neat little flush-mounting FPC cable. Just pop HyperPixel on your Pi and run the installer to get set up!

Works with any 40-pin version of the Pi, including Pi Zero and Pi Zero W. If you’re using it with a larger Pi like the B+, 2, or 3, then use the extra 40-pin header that’s included to boost it up to the required height. If you’re using a Zero or Zero W then just pop it straight onto the GPI.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
