Am I missing something? Screen Dimensions

by kfnrslrflnsrfjnsrlfnrs on Mon Feb 18, 2019 10:57 pm

The 2.4" Screen doesnt seem to be 2.4"

Judging by the schematic:
https://cdn-learn.adafruit.com/assets/a ... bpring.png
(approx.) 2.35" by 1.67" = 2.88" diagonal

Judging by the product page:
https://www.adafruit.com/product/2478
Screen Dimensions: 43mm x 60mm x 4mm / 1.7" x 2.4" x 0.16"
Which is 2.94" diagonal

Am I missing something here?

The schematic is just a notional outline for the entire display package. The 2.4" is referring to the height in the other set of dimensions.

Which part of the screen? The datasheet for the display module itself is here:
https://cdn-shop.adafruit.com/datasheet ... _REV.B.pdf
That has a schematic with more detailed info.
