This is an 5.65inch colorful e-Paper display module, 600x448 resolution, supports ACeP (Advanced Color Paper) sveen-color.
|CS||SPI chip select (Low active)|
|DC||Data/Command control pin (High for data, and low for command)|
|RST||External reset pin (Low for reset)|
|BUSY||Busy state output pin (Low for busy)|
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 sunshine, the E-paper screen still has high visibility with a wide viewing angle of 180 degrees. It is the ideal choice for E-reading.
- Communication protocol
Note: Different from the traditional SPI protocol, the data line from the slave to the master is hidden since the device only has display requirement.
- CS is the slave chip select. When CS is low, the chip is enabled.
- DC is data/command control pin, when DC = 0, write command, when DC = 1, write data.
- SCLK is the SPI communication clock.
- SDIN is the data line from the master to the slave in SPI communication.
SPI communication has data transfer timing, which is combined with CPHA and CPOL.
- CPOL determines the level of the serial synchronous clock at idle state. When CPOL = 0, the level is Low. However, CPOL has little effect to the transmission.
- CPHA determines data is collected at the first clock edge or at the second clock edge of the serial synchronous clock; when CPHL = 0, data is collected at the first clock edge.
- There are 4 SPI communication modes. SPI0 is commonly used, in which CPHL = 0, CPOL = 0.
As you can see from the figure above, data transmission starts at the first falling edge of SCLK, and 8 bits of data are transferred in one clock cycle. In here, SPI0 is in used, and data is transferred by bits, MSB first.
Color of e-Paper
An image is made of pixels. The sizes of every pixel defined who may color are supported by the e-Paper. Monochrome image use one bit for one pixel (0 and 1, black and white), in this case, if we want to display more colors, we should use more bits for every pixel.
You can refer to the Make BMP file for e-Paper" guide and make the image yourself for this module.
We need at least 3bits to display severe color. For easy programming, we and an 0 bit in front of it. In this case, we use 4 bits for every pixel.
|Color||BIN||HEX||The color (reference)|
For example, if you want to display four colors, green, yellow, red and orange, it should be like as below:
Data is saved in MSB formate and 1byte is equal to 8 bits.
How to use
We provide several examples for testing, you first test the e-Paper by following the guides. If your developing board is different, you need to write your codes yourself by following the resources.
- Instruction about make new font
- Make BMP file for e-Paper
- 5.65inch e-Paper Module (F) Schematic
- 5.65inch e-Paper Module (F) Specification
