PiTFT Mini Kit - 320x240 2.8" TFT LCD + Touchscreen for the Raspberry Pi

Featuring 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!

Product Description

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.


This version comes as a mini-kit, with a 2x13 extra-tall female header (to connect the plate to the Pi) and a 2x13 male header that can be used to connect an IDC cable or cobbler from the side.


The photos above also show the optional installed slim tactile buttons. The tactile buttons are not included, but you can pick up a bag of 20 here. Some basic soldering is required to install the headers.

    Missing ribbon cable.
    Includes connectors with no instructions or links to instructions
    Soldering required.
    The tactile buttons should be included.

    This is a better buy directly from Adafruit.

    Quality:

    Comes with no documentation. On line search found little. One site had instructions. You have to download files. Did that. The files will not install. I keep getting errors. Raspberry support sites less than helpful.
