This product is an E-paper device adopting the image display technology of Microencapsulated Electrophoretic Display, MED. The initial approach is to create tiny spheres, in which the charged color pigments are suspending in the transparent oil and would move depending on the electronic charge. The E-paper screen display patterns by reflecting the ambient light, so it has no background light requirement. Under ambient light, the E-paper screen still has high visibility with a wide viewing angle of 180 degrees. It is the ideal choice for E-reading.(Note that the e-Paper cannot support updating directly under sunlight)

{{{name5}}}

10.3inch e-Paper is big size screen, the glass panel and FPC is fragile, please be careful when use it for developing. we recommend you to reinforce the FPC with scotch tape when developing. Please connect all the cables before powering the device, the device cannot support hot-plug.

There are two versions, one is the raw panel and another is the HAT version. The driver board (IT8951) is required for raw panel, if you are the first time to buy this e-paper, recommend you choose HAT version which comes with the driver board.

Introduction


  • This product is a flexible e-Paper HAT (D), 10.3 inches, with a resolution of 1872×1404. It equips with IT8951 as the controller, can be controlled by USB/SPI/I80 interface, and supports partial refresh.
  • Compared with ordinary e-Paper screens, it is thinner and lighter.
  • It has the advantages of low power consumption, wide viewing angle, and clear display after power failure. It is often used in display applications such as e-book readers, ink screen displays, and industrial instruments.

Working principle

This product is an E-paper device adopting the image display technology of Microencapsulated Electrophoretic Display, MED. The initial approach is to create tiny spheres, in which the charged color pigments are suspending in the transparent oil and would move depending on the electronic charge. The E-paper screen display patterns by reflecting the ambient light, so it has no background light requirement. Under ambient light, the E-paper screen still has high visibility with a wide viewing angle of 180 degrees. It is the ideal choice for E-reading.(Note that the e-Paper cannot support updating directly under sunlight)

How to use


Working with Windows PC

  • Connect 10.3inch e-paper to IT8951 driver board as below

1200px-10.3inch-e-Paper-HAT-D-Manual-01.jpg

  • Connect USB interface of IT8951 driver board to PC, then connect PWR ONLY interface of IT8951 to 5V power adapter.
The refresh consumption of e-Paper is high, therefore, external power supply is required. You must first connect data cable then the power, otherwise, e-Paper cannot be recognized properly.

    2. Draw figures and strings
    3. Display pictures in 1bp, 2bp, and 4bp modes
    4. Fast updating in A2 mode
    5. Display a gif
    6. Dispaly a demo for calculating the framerate
    7. Clear the display in Init mode

Working with STM32

Because IT8951 will cost big size of RAM, some of STM32 cannot support without external SDRAM device. So we here use Open429I as test board, Open429I integrates IS42S16400J (64-MBIT) SDRAM,has full memory to drive the 9.7inch e-paper.

Working with STM32, you can use SPI, I80 or I2C interface. SPI is simple and only a few of GPIOs are used, its speed can also meet the requirement of most applications. I80 is also simple and fast, however, it need to use lots of GPIO. I2C is every slow, which we don't recommend.

SPI

1) Hardware connection

Connect to STM32F429IGT6 (SPI)
IT8951 STM32 Description
5V 5V 5V Power input
GND GND Ground
MISO PE13 Data output
MOSI PE14 Data input
SCK PE12 Clock input
CS PE11 Chip select (Low active)
RST PC5 Reset (Low for reset)
HRDY PA7 BUSY state output (Low for busy)

2) Set the DIP switch to SPI mode

9.7inch-e-Paper-HAT-Manual-14.jpg

3) Download demo code and test

You can download the Demo code

Open the project with keil: Open429I-IT8951-Demo\Project\IT8951\MDK-ARM\Project.uvproj

Compile it, then open IT8951.h, check if SPI mode is enabled. Compile it again and download to your board.

CSEL PC6 Chip select (Low active)
HRD PC3 Read enable (Low for active)
RST PC0 Reset (Low for reset)
BUSY PA7 Busy state output (Low for busy)

2) Set the DIP switch to I80 mode

3) Display with demo code

You can download the Demo code

Open the project with keil: Open429I-IT8951-Demo\Project\IT8951\MDK-ARM\Project.uvproj

Compile it, then open IT8951.h, check if I80 mode is enabled. Compile it again and download to your board.

Information are printed to serial port as below (115200, 8N1)

10.3inch-e-Paper-HAT-D-Manual-10.jpg

Display pictures

For easy porting our demo code, we display picture with data matrix instead of file system.

We should first convert BMP picture to data matrix (arrays), and use it in demo code.

1) Prepare a BMP image, resize the picture to 800*600

2) Open BMP convert software, Click File->Open..-> to open the picture as below:

10.3inch-e-Paper-HAT-D-Manual-11.jpg

3) Click Image -> Convert to ->Gray256(8 BPP)

10.3inch-e-Paper-HAT-D-Manual-12.jpg

4) Click File ->Save As... ->Choose "C" bitmap file (*.c) -> input file name and click Save.

5) Choose 8 bit per pixel, click OK. A C file will be saved to your PC

9.7inch-e-Paper-HAT-Manual-21.jpg

6) Add the C file to keil project, delect unusable information

7) Modify the codes

static GUI_CONST_STORAGE unsigned char _aczoo_800_600[] = {

to this one. (You can change the name of the array to every one you like)

const unsigned char zoo_800_600[] = {

8) Modify related codes in IT8951.C as below

extern const unsigned char zoo_800_600[];
void IT8951DisplayExample3()
{
	IT8951LdImgInfo stLdImgInfo;
	IT8951AreaImgInfo stAreaImgInfo;
	TWord width = gstI80DevInfo.usPanelW;
	TWord high = gstI80DevInfo.usPanelH;
	TDWord i;
 
	for (i = 0;i < width*high;i++)
	{
		gpFrameBuf[i] = zoo_800_600[i];
	}
 
	IT8951WaitForDisplayReady();
 
	//Setting Load image information
	stLdImgInfo.ulStartFBAddr    = (TDWord)gpFrameBuf;
	stLdImgInfo.usEndianType     = IT8951_LDIMG_L_ENDIAN;
	stLdImgInfo.usPixelFormat    = IT8951_8BPP; 
	stLdImgInfo.usRotate         = IT8951_ROTATE_0;
	stLdImgInfo.ulImgBufBaseAddr = gulImgBufAddr;
	//Set Load Area
	stAreaImgInfo.usX      = 0;
	stAreaImgInfo.usY      = 0;
	stAreaImgInfo.usWidth  = width;
	stAreaImgInfo.usHeight = high;
 
	IT8951HostAreaPackedPixelWrite(&stLdImgInfo, &stAreaImgInfo);//Display function 2
	IT8951DisplayArea(0,0, gstI80DevInfo.usPanelW, gstI80DevInfo.usPanelH, 2);
}

FAQ

 Answer:
The most likely reason for not being able to print the picture is that the wires are not connected correctly. Please check the wiring. Due to the different batches of products, the wiring method may not be exactly the same as the picture. Please refer to the cable and 1 and 40 on the silk screen. As shown in the red line in the figure below:

 Answer:
1. Replace the Micro USB cable with good quality. There are many USB cables on the market that have too much voltage drop, which will cause the USB interface to fail to enumerate normally.

2. Try changing the USB interface. It is recommended to use the USB interface on the back of the PC. Relatively speaking, the power supply current will be larger.
3. Turn the DIP switch to the end. During shipping, the DIP switches may be loosened, and the floating configuration pins cannot put the IT8951 into USB mode.

 Answer:
Click connect. The following information will be displayed normally (different models will display different information):

If you fail to refresh, check whether the hard link is normal, use the USB port on the back of the PC (most of the USB ports on the front of the PC have weak power supply capability), and replace the e-paper test. Note: Do not plug and unplug the e-paper with power on, otherwise the driver board and e-paper may be damaged.
