Adafruit
Adafruit PiTFT - 2.8" Touchscreen for Raspberry Pi

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! 

  • 320x240 2.8" 16-bit display
  • Resistive touch
  • Driven via hardware SPI
  • GPIO breakout
  • Space for 4 slim tactile switches

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.

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, see the photos above.

This version comes fully assembled - no sodlering required! The photos above also show the optional installed slim tactile buttons.

The 3mm tactile buttons are not included, but you can pick up a pack of 5 here.

Adafruit have created a custom kernel package based of off Notro's awesome framebuffer work, so you can install it over your existing Raspbian (or derivative) images in just a few commands. Our tutorial shows you how to install the software, as well as calibrate the touchscreen, show videos, display images such as from your PiCam and more!
