3.5inch RPi LCD (A) and 3.5inch RPi LCD (B) are hardware compatible with each other (uses different driver), and can be mutually substituted in most cases. (A) for low cost ver. while (B) for IPS ver. with better displaying.

Why the LCD doesn"t work with my Raspbian?To use the LCD with the Raspberry Pi official image, driver (SPI touch interface only) should be installed first. Please refer to the user manual.

However, for the first testing, you may want to use our image directly (if provided).Why the LCD still doesn"t work with the Waveshare provided image?Make sure the hardware connection is correct and connects fine.

Since the first-generation Raspberry Pi released, Waveshare has been working on designing, developing, and producing various fantastic touch LCDs for the Pi. Unfortunately, there are quite a few pirated/knock-off products in the market. They"re usually some poor copies of our early hardware revisions, and comes with none support service.

In this tutorial, we are going to interface a 3.5-inch TFT display with Raspberry Pi Zero Wdevelopment board. Although Raspberry pi zero itself has an HDMI output that can be directly connected to a Monitor, but in projects where space is a constrain, we need smaller displays. This TFT touch screen display can be easily interfaced to the Raspberry Pi to display the system console, movies, and images, as well as control a relay board and other devices at your fingertips. We’ve used software like MobaXterm or putty to connect to the PC remotely in past tutorials. Here, we are going to use MobaXterm software to install the required drivers for interfacing TFT display with Raspberry Pi Zero W.

This TFT LCD display has a 3.5-inch resistive touch screen display and is compatible with any hardware of the Raspberry Pi family. This 3.5" TFT display has 480x320 pixels with a 16-bit resolution and resistive touch option. It can fit directly on top of the Raspberry Pi Zero W board and gets powered from the Vcc pin, the display communicates through SPI protocol with the Pi. Additionally, you can also use the HDMI port on the Pi to connect it to another display as well. It is designed for Raspberry Pi Zero/Pi 2 /Pi 3 Model B / B+ and can also be used on other hardware platforms which have SPI interfaces. The highlights of this display module is that it supports plug and play without rebooting the Pi and the SPI speed runs as fast as 32MHz to support games and videos.

There are 26 pins in TFT RPi LCD display. It"s used to establish SPI communication between the Raspberry Pi and the LCD, as well as to power the LCD from the Raspberry Pi"s 5V and 3.3V pins. The description of pins is shown below.

It is very easy to connect Raspberry Pi Zero W with a 3.5” TFT LCD display. There are 40 pins on the Raspberry Pi Zero W, but only 26 pins on the LCD, so make sure you connect the pins to your Pi correctly. A strip of female header pins on the LCD will fit snugly into the male header pins. To establish the connection, simply align the pins and press the LCD on top of the Raspberry Pi zero W. When everything is in place, your Pi and LCD should look like the one given below.

After you"ve connected the LCD to the Raspberry Pi Zero W and power on it, you"ll see a blank white screen on the LCD which is due to the fact that no drivers for the linked LCD have been installed on the Pi. So, open the Pi"s terminal window and start making the necessary adjustments. Here, we are going to use MobaXterm software for connecting Raspberry Pi Zero W but you can use PuTTY or any software which is most comfortable for you.

Step-5: Now, restart your Raspberry Pi Zero W. When the Raspberry Pi Zero W restarts, you will see the boot information on the LCD display before the desktop appears, as shown below.

I would like to add one thing at the end of this tutorial that while doing this interfacing, I faced a problem related to OS. TFT display interfacing with Raspberry Pi Zero W was not working on Raspberry Pi OS LiteandRaspberry Pi OS with desktopbut when I used the Raspberry Pi OS with desktop and recommended software then TFT display interfacing with Raspberry Pi Zero W worked as expected.

This is how you can interface Raspberry Pi Zero W with a 3.5 inch TFT Raspberry Pi display. In our next tutorials, we are going to interface different sensors with Raspberry Pi Zero and you will see some amazing DIY projects using Raspberry Pi Zero W. I Hope you"ve enjoyed the project and learned something useful. If you have any questions, please leave them in the comment section below or use our forum to start a discussion on the same.

This LCD Touchscreen HAT fits snuggly on top of the Raspberry Pi, practically form fitting on top of it so as not to compromise the overall dimensions of the credit card sized single board computer. The resistive touchscreen provides you with an easy way to display information coming off of the Raspberry Pi and the OS currently running on it.

The 4:3 aspect ratio backlit LCD equipped on this HAT possesses a resolution of 480 by 320 pixels with over 65 thousand colors and an SPI interface with a 16MHz driver speed. Simply plug the 13x2 GPIO header into your desired Raspberry Pi and you"ll be able to start using your new resistive touch screen!
