4.3″ Raspberry Pi Display Module for the Raspberry Pi A, B and B+

The uLCD-43D-PI is a Raspberry Pi Display Module Pack, which includes a uLCD-43D 4.3″ LCD Display, a 4D Serial Pi Adaptor, and a 5-way interface cable.

The uLCD-43D-PI includes a 4D Serial Pi Adaptor which easily interfaces the uLCD-43D Display with the Raspberry Pi, to provide a quick and easy interface without any wiring hassles.

The Raspberry Pi Display Module Pack enables a Raspberry Pi user to quickly connect the 4D Pi Adaptor Shield to their Raspberry Pi, connect the 5-way cable between the Adaptor and the Display Module, and be connected in seconds to start programming their new 4D Systems Display.

The uLCD-43D-PI has a comprehensive ViSi-Genie library written to communicate with the Raspberry Pi, allowing the Visi-Genie events to be easily understood by the Raspberry Pi and user code, along with a Serial Library for Linux for communicating with the Display when using the Serial Environment.

Utilises the Raspberry Pi’s UART Serial Port.

For a detailed listing of the capabilities of the display module in this Raspberry Pi Pack, please refer to the datasheet for the display itself, available from the Product Page of the uLCD-43D.

NOT RECOMMENDED FOR NEW DESIGNS – Please contact Sales for Questions/Concerns. Please refer to our gen4 range for alternate products.
