i need a more detailed drawing of the full assembly so i can fit this onto a new system we are developing
  • Unfortunately we don't have any technical drawings of this product, so your best bet is to contact the manufacture directly -

Underside pins - do they work like GPIO?
There are extra pins under the screen, do these return the 5v + Ground pins that the screen takes up?
  • The 2x13 header on the underside is for connecting to the Pi's GPIO pins. So yes, they have the 5v and GND pins.

Is this not the cutest, little display for the Raspberry Pi? It features a 3.5" display with 480x320 16-bit color pixels and a resistive touch overlay so is slightly larger than the popular original. 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!

It's designed to fit nicely onto the Pi Model A or B but also works perfectly fine with the Model B+ as long as you don't mind the PCB overhangs the USB ports by 5mm.

Uses the hardware SPI pins (SCK, MOSI, MISO, CE0, CE1) as well as GPIO #25 and #24. GPIO #18 can be used to PWM dim the backlight if you like. All other GPIO are unused. There's a 2x13 header on the bottom, you can connect a standard Pi GPIO cable to it to use any of the other pins ask you like.

Best of all, it comes fully assembled and ready to plug into your Pi! You can use this as a display for running the X interface, or pygame. You can also have an HDMI display seperately connected. There's four mounting ears that can be used to attach the display & Pi to a bezel, or snap them off with pliers (they're perforated) for a slick exactly-the-same-size-as-a-Pi look.

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. Their tutorial shows you how to install the software, as well as calibrate the touchscreen, display images such as from your PiCam and more!
