...where a bunch of geeks got together to make other people's ideas come to life.
This is a 2.8" display with 320x240 16-bit color pixels and a resistive touch overlay. The plate uses the high speed SPI interface on the Pi, so you can use the mini display as a console, X window port, to display images or video, and many inventive ideas for this easy display install kit. Best of all it plugs right in on top!
The board uses the hardware SPI pins (SCK, MOSI, MISO, CE0, CE1) as well as GPIO #25 and #24. All other GPIO are unused. There are four 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 that are not included in this mini kit.
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.
Adafruit has a great getting started tutorial for this board.
