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 Zero, Pi 3, Pi 2 or Model A+, B+! (Any Pi with a 2x20 connector) Not for use with an old Pi 1 with 2x13 connector If you'd like to use a 2.8" display with the original Pi A or Pi B, check out the Model B version. This one also has all 40 pins GPIO pins brought out so you can connect a 40-pin GPIO cable underneath.
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.
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 this detailed tutorial on how to play videos, display images, and otherwise customize your PiTFT.
