Advantages of EINK

E-paper display utilizes microcapsule electrophoretic technology for displaying, the principle is: charged particles suspended in clear fluid will move to sides of microcapsule when electric field is applied, making the microcapsule become visible by reflecting ambient light, just as traditional printed paper.
E-paper display will clearly display images/texts under lamplight or natural light, requires no backlight, and features nearly up to 180° viewing angle. It is usually used as e-reader due to its paper-like effect.



Onboard SPI control interface

for use with other controller boards like Raspberry Pi/Jetson Nano/Arduino

VCC 3.3V/5V
GND Ground
DIN SPI MOSI pin
SCLK SPI SCK pin
CS SPI chip selection, low active
DC Data / Command selection (high for data, low for command)
RST External reset, low active
BUSY Busy status output (high for busy)

Onboard voltage translator

compatible with 3.3V / 5V MCUs


Application examples

Suitable for price Tags, asset/equipment Tags, shelf labels, conference name tags...
