“Is this not the cutest little display for the Raspberry Pi? It features a 2.8″ display with 320×240 16-bit color pixels and a resistive touch overlay. 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!

Uses the hardware SPI pins (SCK, MOSI, MISO, CE0, CE1) as well as GPIO #25 and #24. All other GPIO are 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. See below for the link to get the optional tact switches, they’re not included. “
