Details

e-Paper IoT Driver HAT for Raspberry Pi, Supports NB-IoT/eMTC/GPRS

Overview

This is a Raspberry Pi IoT driver board for e-Paper raw panels. It allows getting text/image data from IoT clouds through NB-IoT/eMTC/EDGE/GPRS network connection, and then display them on the e-Paper.

Features

  • Onboard SIM7000E module, controlled via UART, supports NB-IoT/eMTC/EDGE/GPRS communication
  • e-Paper interface, controlled via SPI, compatible with various Waveshare SPI e-Paper raw panels
  • Standard Raspberry Pi 40PIN GPIO extension header, supports Raspberry Pi series boards
  • Breakout SIM7000E and e-Paper control pins, for connecting with host control boards like STM32
  • 3.7V lithium battery port and charging circuit, provides power to SIM7000E module or external 3.3V system (5V system like Raspberry Pi requires another power supply)
  • Onboard voltage translator, select 3.3V/5V operating voltage by switch
  • Provides Windows host code (based on Alibaba Cloud), make it easy to study/develop, or integrate it into IoT applications
  • Comes with development resources and manual (examples for Raspberry Pi/STM32)

Specifications

  • Communication interface: UART + SPI (4-wire SPI by default, switch to 3-wire SPI by soldering)
  • Communication module: SIM7000E
    • Quad-Band LTE-FDD B3/B8/B20/B28
    • GPRS/EDGE 900/1800Mhz
    • GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, and Galileo, GNSS antenna is required and NOT included)
  • Support SIM card: NB-IoT specific card, or 1.8V/3V normal SIM card
  • Applicable region: China mainland, southeast Asia, Europe, Africa, Australia, etc. (for reference only, please check the supported bands according to your local service provider)
  • Power supply voltage: 5V
  • Logic level: 5V / 3.3V
  • Applicable battery: 3.7V lithium battery via PH2.0 connector (NOT included)
  • Dimensions: 56.5mm x 65mm

Applications

  • Shelf label
  • AD label
