PiTFT – 480 x 320 3.5" TFT Display Module + Touchscreen for Raspberry Pi
Including €0.01 for ecotax
The 480 x 320 3.5" assembled PiTFT: a high-quality kit for your Raspberry Pi!
A small colour screen you can connect directly to your Raspberry Pi A and B. It can also be used with the Raspberry Pi B+ and the Raspberry Pi 2 (as long as you don't mind the PCB overhanging the USB ports by 5mm).
Its touchscreen and resistive overlay, as well as its TFT display module, come already assembled, ready to be connected and programmed via your Pi – there is no welding at all, it’s a bona fide plug and play device!
The module uses your Raspberry Pi's SPI interface, your screen and the SPI (SCK, MOSI, MISO, CE0, CE1) and GPIO 24 and 25 pins. The GPIO 18 can be used to PWM dim the backlight. The GPIO 21, 22 and 23 pins are left free.
There is a 2x13 header on the bottom, so it is possible to connect a standard Pi GPIO cable to it. You can snap off the 4 perforated mounting ears for a slick exactly-the-same-size-as-a-Pi look.
Uses for the touchscreen for Raspberry Pi
This small, colour touchscreen for Raspberry Pi can be used in many different ways, for example as a console or video screen, a DIY GPS or smartphone screen, or even in a small point-and-shoot camera. It can also be used to create a mini arcade game or a mini computer.
