5" Raspberry Pi Compatible Touchscreen Display

Part Number: CFAM800480B0-050TC

This 5" TFT display is the perfect companion for a Raspberry Pi. The display connects to an RPi using the native DSI connector on the RPi. This connection provides everything the display needs- display information, power, and all the connections for the capacitive touchscreen. That means all of the RPi's GPIOs are available to connect with other peripherals*.
Plus, unlike many RPi displays, this display is ready to go and doesn't require modifications to the config.txt file on your RPi before power-up*.
  • 5" full-color TFT Display
  • 400 nits
  • Capacitive touchscreen
  • Single 15-pin connector required for display, cap touch, and power
  • Connects with native DSI on the RPi
    • Uses no GPIOs
    • Config file ready to go

Product Update #11177: Test Screen Issue Resolution

Product Affected: CFAM800480B0-050TC
Date Issued: February 28, 2023
Summary: Test Screen Issue Resolution
Description: A resolution to the test screens that occur during reboot has been released as an app note. The app note can be found in the documents section of the product page here: https://www.crystalfontz.com/product/cfam800480b0050tc-800x480-raspberry-pi-dsi-tft-lcd
For reference only. For design purposes, please use the specifications in the datasheet.

Product Notes

*For applications where the controller will be shut down or reset, an additional connection to the reset (RST) pin on the J3 header is required, and must be toggled during boot-up.

**Some versions of Raspbian the creators have inverted the display which can cause the touch screen to not track the same with the image. To fix this, add lcd_rotate = 2 to the config.txt
