Adafruit PiTFT Plus 320x240 2.8" TFT + Capacitive Touchscreen

Add a compact 320x240 resolution screen to the top of your Raspberry Pi. It features a 2.8" display with 320x240 16-bit colour 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 Zero, Pi 3, Pi 2 or Model A+, B+! (Any Pi with a 2x20 connector) Not for use with an old Pi 1 with 2x13 connector. This version also has all 40 pins GPIO pins brought out so you can connect a 40-pin GPIO cable underneath.

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 they had a tiny bit of space, there's 4 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.

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.
