Is this not the cutest, little display for the Raspberry Pi? It features a 3.5" display with 480x320 16-bit color pixels and a resistive touch overlay just like our popular original, but this one is engineered specifically to work with the Raspberry Pi 2 and the Model A+ / B+. 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!

SPI pins (SCK, MOSI, MISO, CE0, CE1) are used as well as GPIO #25 and #24. GPIO #18 can be used to PWM dim the backlight if you like. There's a 2x16 'classic Pi' connection GPIO header on the bottom, you can connect a 26-pin Pi GPIO cable to it to use any of the other pins as you like. You can use this as a display for running the X interface, or pygame. There's also four mounting ears that can be used to attach the display & Pi to a bezel, or snap them off with pliers for a slick exactly-the-same-size-as-a-Pi look.

Adafruit created a custom kernel package based of off Notro's awesome framebuffer work, so you can install it over your existing Raspbian (or derivative) images in just a few commands. Please visit Adafruit for more information
