The 3.5 inch Resistive TFT Touch Screen Display, which uses SPI Protocol (serial peripheral interface) to communicate with the main processor. It can be mounted directly to the GPIO pins and it doesn’t require any external power source. In here we have detailed explanation on how to install LCD drivers in a custom Raspbian image. The standard version of Raspbian does not include drivers for LCD touchscreens, so we will have to install and configure them manually.
