Yes, this is an adorable small television! The visible display measures only 3.5" (8.9cm) diagonal, the TFT comes with a NTSC/PAL driver board. The display is very easy to use - simply connect 6-15VDC to the red (+) and black (-) wires, then connect a composite video source to the RCA connectors. Voila, a television display! There's three little buttons that let you enter a menu system for adjusting brightness, color and contrast. The cable has two composite plugs, AV1 and AV2. AV1 is the default and if AV2 goes 'live' it replaces AV1. Be sure to try both RCA inputs if one doesn't show up at first. 

To demonstrate it, Adafruit took some photos with the display connected to a Raspberry Pi, but it will also work connected to any analog composite-video output such as a YBox or Propeller w/Video out. It will not work with a device that only outputs VGA, HDMI or any other digital video signal. 

Please note, these miniature displays are very delicate and require care to avoid ripping the delicate flex connector. These are best used by electronics geeks who have experience and are comfortable working with delicate electronic components. ADAFRUIT CANNOT REPLACE DAMAGED DISPLAYS if you are not careful and rip the flex connector!

  1. Review by Terrence - Bright Display verified purchaser

    This is an excellent product, great colours and very bright even in my very well lit work area. I have tested it with my Raspberry Pi, DVD Player and a cheap HDMI to composite converter as well as a high quality HDMI to composite converter and it has worked perfectly on all units, I must admit the cheap HDMI unit surprised me as it looked as good as everything else on this display. I would highly recommend it for use with your RPi projects. (Posted on 23/11/2014)

    Adafruit make some of the best electronic kits. I'm using this TFT display on a miniature arcade machine powered by a Raspberry Pi. (Posted on 10/03/2014)
