HyperPixel 4.0 Square Touch – Hi-Res Display for Raspberry Pi
If you're looking for a high-resolution, high-speed touch-screen for your Raspberry Pi and you want it to be square-shaped, HyperPixel 4.0 Square Touch is the way to go.
HyperPixel 4.0 Square Touch features a high-quality IPS display, touchscreen, DPI interface.
HyperPixel works great in various applictions such as custom interfaces and control panels. You can also use it for Pico-8 games. It's ready to implement right away, as everything is pre-soldered and ready to be used. You only need to attach it to your RPi and you're done.
HyperPixel 4.0 Square uses a high-speed DPI interface, allowing it to shift 5x more pixel data than the usual SPI interface which is normally used in small Pi displays. It has a 60 FPS frame rate and a resolution of approximately 254 pixels per inch (720×720px) on its 4.0" display. The display can show 18-bits of colour (262,144 colours).
The touchscreen is capacitive touch, which is more sensitive and responsive to touch than a resistive touch display, and it has multi-touch capability!
It's compatible with any 40-pin version of the Pi, including Pi Zero and Pi Zero W. If you're using it with a larger Pi then use the extra 40-pin header that's included to adjust it to the required height. If you're using a Pi Zero or Pi Zero W then just pop it straight onto the GPIO.
The included standoff kit allows you to mount your HyperPixel 4.0 Square safely and securely to your Pi. You just need to screw them into the posts on the underside of the HyperPixel 4.0 Square PCB and then secure with screws through the mounting holes on your Pi.
Please note: when installing HyperPixel 4.0 Square 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). Also take care not to pull on the edges of the glass display when removing your HyperPixel.
There's a one-line-installer with the help of which you can configure your Pi properly for HyperPixel 4.0 Square and enable the touchscreen.
Note that you'll need another display, keyboard, and mouse to install the software, or you could do it remotely over SSH if you follow our guide on how to set your Pi up headlessly.
Open a terminal, and type
