Adafruit DPI TFT Kippah for Raspberry Pi
This Adafruit DPI Kippah has a TFT panel which is connected to a Raspberry Pi without the use of on HDMI decoder. With a little software configuration, what normally would go out the HDMI port, now will come up on a nice little flat screen.
What is it compatible with?
Raspberry Pi B+, A+, Pi 2, Pi 3 or Zero
A little bit about the screen
This Kippah has not got a touch screen, however, you will get a sleek ultra-fast 18-bit colour display with optional touch support. When tested the results showed that this can be used with 5and 7 displays at 800x480. Kippah screen is what is called native. What does that mean? It means that it gets all the graphics acceleration capabilities as well as immediate refresh which you would normally get from an HDMI display.
What is the advantage of Kippah?
This add on board uses almost every pin available on the Raspberry Pi. Pins are hardcoded, so they cannot be moved or rearranged. UART RX/TX pins (no console cable) and standard user I2Cpins are not included. Same as the EEPROM I2C pins, or hardware SPI pins.
GPIO 2 through 21 inclusive
#22, #23, #24, #25, #26 and #27
