Display Extensiom

Sun Feb 21, 2016 11:18 pm

Hey, I'm new here and I just got a Raspberry Pi 2 and am looking to add a touchscreen TFT LCD display to it (3.5", possibly the PiTFT by Adafruit). Is there an extension cable or something I can use to connect the display to the Pi with a distance of at least 10 cm? I basically need to use the display with a cable connecting it to the Pi. Any solutions? Thanks.

There are GPIO extension cables available in various lengths
Or you could make your own. It's not that hard to do.

Is that all I would require to increase the distance? Thanks for the quick reply btw.

You have to be careful when buying a cable though. It's easy to get one with the connectors the wrong way around.

Be aware that, increasing the distance too much may force you to slow down the SPI clock as the cable has a negative impact on clock bandwidth.
