The PiTFT Raspberry Pi TFT screen features a 2.8" display with 320x240 16-bit color pixels and a resistive touch overlay and, best of all, it plugs right into the Raspberry Pi GPIO pins! 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. 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 also show the optional installed slim tactile buttons (not included). If you need a case, check out our PiBow TFT Raspberry Pi Case!
 
PiTFT uses the hardware SPI pins (SCK, MOSI, MISO, CE0, CE1) as well as GPIO #25 and #24, but leaves all the other GPIO pins 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.
 
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. The tutorial below shows you how to install the software, as well as calibrate the touchscreen, show videos, display images such as from your PiCam and more!
