A high-resolution, high-speed 4.0″ TFT display for your Raspberry Pi (without capacitive multi-touch).
HyperPixel 4.0 is the perfect way to use your Pi without a bunch of cables or a bulky display. Design your own interface to control your project, display data, or turn your Pi into a tiny media centre.
This new version of HyperPixel has a gorgeous IPS display, with wide viewing angles, custom-made cover glass (on the touch version), and the alternate I2C interface is broken out for advanced users.
- High-speed DPI interface
- 4.0″ IPS (wide viewing angle, 160°) display (86.4×51.8mm)
- 800×480 pixels (~235 PPI)
- 18-bit colour (262,144 colours)
- 60 FPS frame rate
- Contrast ratio: 500:1
- 40-pin female header included to boost height for Pi B+, 2, 3, 3B+
- Standoffs included to securely attach to your Pi
- Compatible with Raspberry Pi 3B+, 3, 2, B+, A+, Zero, and Zero W
- One-line installer
HyperPixel uses a high-speed DPI interface, allowing it to shift 5x more pixel data than the usual SPI interface that this small Pi displays use. It has a 60 FPS frame rate and a resolution of approximately 235 pixels per inch (800×480) on its 4.0″ display. The display can show 18-bits of colour (262,144 colours).
Everything comes fully assembled, and there’s no soldering required! The display is securely stuck down to the HyperPixel 4.0 PCB and connected via a neat little flush-mounting FPC cable. Just pop HyperPixel 4.0 on your Pi and run our installer to get everything set up!
Please note: when installing HyperPixel 4.0 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, 3B+, 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.
The included standoff kit allows you to mount your HyperPixel 4.0 safely and securely to your Pi. Just screw them into the posts on the underside of the HyperPixel 4.0 PCB and then secure with screws through the mounting holes on your Pi.
