Info: TFT display vs. single-board computer-hardware compatibility

Not every TFT display fits for every single-board computer!

If the TFT display fits depends – for one thing – on the used GPIO Header (Female Header) [female header]. Here versions exist with 9 mm and 19 mm and if it is adjusted for 2x13 or 2x20. Also matters the design height on the single-board computer.
