A 2.4" TFT compact display for Raspberry-Pi embeded projects
With this screen, the PiTFT Plus can be more affordable with this reduced 2.4" PiTFT for Raspberry-Pi.
This PiTFT does meet the HAT specifications and hold a 2.4" LCD with resistive touchscreen overlay. The resolution is 320x240 pixels with full 16-bits color.
The HAT uses the high speed SPI interface on the Pi and can use the mini display as a console, X window port, displaying images and video too.
Just plug it on the top of your Pi to take the benefit of it.
This screen has been designed to fit on any Pi having the 2x20 connector... so, it work nicely with Pi Model Zero, A+, B+, Pi 2, Pi 3, Pi 4.
This design uses the hardware SPI pins (SCK, MOSI, MISO, CE0, CE1) as well as GPIO 25 and GPIO 24. All other GPIO are unused.
Adafruit did also use the remaining space to create 5 spots for optional slim tactile switches wired to five GPIOs. Theses switches would be welcome to create basic user interface (Eg: use one as a power on/off button).
The maker will also appreciate the right-angle 26-pin connector off to the side. You can connect a classic 26-pin Raspberry Pi GPIO cable in order to access the rest of the GPIO through a cobbler, etc for prototyping.
Each order ships with an assembled HAT with 2.4" TFT display with resistive touchscreen and a 2x20 female socket header. Some light soldering is required to attach the header but it is easy work for anyone with a soldering iron & solder.Alternatively, you can use a stacking type header instead if you'd like to plug a 2x20 GPIO cable on top

Adafruit created a custom kernel package to make this screen super easy to use. The package is based on the Notro's awesome framebuffer work.
You can install the kernel package over the existing Raspbian (or derivative) images in just a few commands.!
