808343 Adafruit PiTFT Plus 320x240 2.8" TFT + Capacitive Touchscreen

Adafruit PiTFT Plus 320x240 2.8" TFT + Capacitive Touchscreen

It features a 2.8" display with 320x240 16-bit color pixels and a capacitive touch overlay. That's right, instead of a resistive touchscreen, which requires a fingernail or stylus, you can now use a fingerpad. The screen looks much nicer, with a black bezel and glass overlay.

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 capacitive touch overlay. That's right, instead of a resistive touchscreen, which requires a fingernail or stylus, you can now use a fingerpad. The screen looks much nicer, with a black bezel and glass overlay.

This updated design fits perfectly onto the Pi Model A+, B+, or Pi 2! Works just like the Model B version, but now matches the outline of the Raspberry Pi 2 and Model B+. It also has all 40 pins GPIO pins brought out so you can connect a 40-pin GPIO cable underneath. Now that it's the same outline as a Pi 2/B+ it fits well on top of a Pi in our Raspberry Pi Enclosure base.

The display and touchscreen uses the hardware I2C Pins (SDA & SCL), SPI pins (SCK, MOSI, MISO, CE0) as well as GPIO #25 and #24. All other GPIO are unused and you can still share the I2C pins with sensors, LED drivers, etc. 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.

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.

This display comes fully assembled with tactile switches too

Raspberry Pi computer and enclosure not included! This display comes as a Mini Kit, some light soldering is required to attach the 40-pin connector included to the PCB. Soldering iron and solder is not included! Check out our detailed tutorial on how to play videos, display images, and otherwise customize your PiTFT.
