PiTFT Plus 320x240 2.8" TFT + Capacitive Touchscreen - Assembled - Pi 2 and Model A+ / B+ features a 2.8" display with 320x240 16-bit color pixels and a capacitive touch overlay. Instead of a resistive touchscreen, which requires a fingernail or stylus, the screen has capacitive touch overlay and you can use a fingerpad. The screen looks much nicer, with a black bezel and glass overlay.
This updated design fits perfectly onto the Pi Model A+, B+, or Pi 2. The touchscreen works just like the Model B version, but now matches the outline of the Raspberry Pi 2 and Model B+. It also has all 40 pins GPIO pins brought out so you can connect a 40-pin GPIO cable underneath.
PiTFT Plus 320x240 2.8" TFT + Capacitive Touchscreen - Assembled - Pi 2 and Model A+ / B+ uses the hardware I2C Pins (SDA & SCL), SPI pins (SCK, MOSI, MISO, CE0) as well as GPIO #25 and #24. All other GPIO are unused and you can still share the I2C pins with sensors, LED drivers, etc. 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. See below for the link to get the optional tact switches, they're not included.
PiTFT Plus 320x240 2.8" TFT + Capacitive Touchscreen - Assembled - Pi 2 and Model A+ / B+ comes fully assembled.
