Adafruit PiTFT - 2.8" Touchscreen Display for Raspberry Pi
Add a compact 320x240 resolution screen to the top of your Pi
This little display for the Raspberry Pi features a 2.8" screen with 320x240 16-bit color pixels and a resistive touch overlay. The plate uses the high speed SPI interface on the Pi and can use the display as a console, X window port, displaying images or video etc. Best of all it plugs right in on top.
Its 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. All other GPIO are unused.
There are 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. The tactile buttons are not included. Some basic soldering is required to install the buttons.
Display current draw is mostly based on the backlight, with full-on backlight the current draw is ~100mA.
