2.4″ Primary Display HAT for the Raspberry Pi

Please note that this product is NOT available directly from 4D Systems. You can purchase directly from Farnell HERE.

The 4DPi-24-HAT is a 2.4″ 320×240 Primary Display HAT for the Raspberry Pi, which plugs directly on top of a Raspberry Pi and displays the primary output which is normally sent to the HDMI or Composite output. It features an integrated Resistive Touch panel, enabling the 4DPi-24-HAT to function with the Raspberry Pi without the need for a mouse.

Communication between the 4DPi-24-HAT and the Raspberry Pi is interfaced with a high speed 48Mhz SPI connection, which utilises an on-board processor for direct command interpretation and SPI communication compression, and features a customised DMA enabled kernel.

The 4DPi-24-HAT is designed to work with the Raspbian Operating System running on the Raspberry Pi, as that is the official Raspberry Pi operating system. It is also compatible with the new PIXEL addition to Raspbian.

The 4DPi-24-HAT is powered directly off the Raspberry Pi’s 40 way Header, and the 2.4″ Touch Screen allows effortless interaction with the Raspbian Operating System.
