Adafruit Mini PiTFT - 1.3" 240x240 Color TFT Add-on

Adafruit Mini PiTFT - 1.3" 240x240 Color TFT Add-on for Raspberry Pi is ready to snap onto any Raspberry Pi computer, to give a 1.3" 240x240 pixel display. The Mini PiTFT comes with a full-color IPS display with great visibility at all angles. The TFT uses only the SPI port, so it is very fast, and there are plenty of pins remaining available for buttons, LEDs, sensors, and more. The add-on is compact, so it will fit into any case. The display is super small, only about 1.3" diagonal, but since it is an IPS display, it's very readable with high contrast and visibility. There are two tactile buttons on GPIO pins so the user can create a simple user interface. On the bottom, there is a Qwiic/STEMMA QT connector for I2C sensors and devices, so the user can plug and play any of the Adafruit STEMMA QT devices.

Using the display is easy, as Adafruit has a kernel driver and Python library for the ST7789 chipset. The user can set it up as a console output so they can have text and user interface through the Raspberry Pi OS. They can also draw images, text, or whatever is desired, using the Python imaging library. Tests showed ~15FPS update rates, so the user can also do animations or simple video. The devices come completely pre-assembled and tested, so the user doesn't need to do anything but plug it in and install the Adafruit Python code. The device works with any Raspberry Pi computer.
