      Pimoroni HyperPixel - 3.5" Hi-Res Display for Raspberry PI

      Pimoroni HyperPixel - 3.5" Hi-Res Display for Raspberry PI

      SKU 114991415
      40 Available


      A high-resolution, high-speed 3.5"TFT display for your Raspberry Pi.

      HyperPixel is the perfect way to use your Pi without a bunch of cables or a bulky display. Design your own interface to control your projects or display your data, or turn your Pi into a tiny media centre, or make your own version of 2048 game with  Pi and Grove modules.

      HyperPixel uses a high-speed DPI interface, allowing it to shift 5x more pixel data than the usual SPI interface that these small Pi displays use. It has a 60 FPS frame rate and a resolution of approximately 270 pixels per inch (800x480) on its 3.5"display. The display can show 18-bits of colour (262,144 colours).

      It has a capacitive touch display that's more sensitive and responsive to touch than a resistive touch display, and it's capable of multi-touch!

      Everything comes fully-assembled, and there's no soldering required! The display is securely stuck down to the HyperPixel PCB and connected via a neat little flush-mounting FPC cable. Just pop HyperPixel on your Pi and run our installer to get everything set up!

      Please note: when installing HyperPixel onto your Pi make sure not to press down on the screen surface! Hold the board by its edges and wiggle it to mate with the extended header (or GPIO header).

      It'll work with any 40-pin version of the Pi, including Pi Zero and Pi Zero W. If you're using it with a larger Pi like the B+, 2, or 3, then use the extra 40-pin header that's included to boost it up to the required height. If you're using a Zero or Zero W then just pop it straight onto the GPIO.


      We've put together a one-line-installer to configure your Pi properly for HyperPixel and to enable the touch screen on the touch version. Note that you'll need another display, keyboard, and mouse to install the software, or you could do it remotely over SSH if you follow our guide on how to set your Pi up headlessly.

      Which GPIOs does it use? Can the other GPIOs still be accessed?

      It uses 'most' of the i/o and has to turn off I2C & Spi.
