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 9.7inch e-paper to IT8951 driver board as below
9.7inch-e-Paper-HAT-Manual-09.jpg
  • Connect driver board to PC by USB cable
  • Download and open test software E-LINK-TCON-DEMO
  • Click connect as below
9.7inch-e-Paper-HAT-Manual-10.jpg
  • Check option "AutoSet", then click "Open File" to open one picture for display. Browse diagram will be opened, and you should click "OK"
9.7inch-e-Paper-HAT-Manual-11.jpg
  • Click "display" to refresh the picture
9.7inch-e-Paper-HAT-Manual-12.jpg


Working with Raspberry Pi

  • Hardware connection
9.7inch-e-Paper-HAT-Manual-13.jpg
You can also connecting by wires
Connect to Raspberry Pi via SPI
IT8951 Driver HAT Raspberry Pi (BCM) Description'
5V 5V 5V power input
GND GND Ground
MISO P9 MISO Pin of SPI
MOSI P10 MOSI Pin of SPI
SCK P11 SCK Pin of SPI
CS P8 Chip selection of SPI (Low active)
RST P17 Reset pin (Low active)
HRDY P24 Busy stats pin (Low when busy)
  • Make sure you have switched the sail switch to SPI mode
9.7inch-e-Paper-HAT-Manual-14.jpg

Copy the library you download to Raspberry Pi and install it withe commands below. You can also following the instruction on its website above

tar zxvf bcm2835-1.xx.tar.gz
cd bcm2835-1.xx
./configure
make
sudo make check
sudo make install
  • Download Demo code and copy to your Raspberry Pi. Extract and run it with the commands below in your Raspberry Pi
git clone https://github.com/waveshare/IT8951-ePaper.git
cd IT8951-ePaper/Raspberry
sudo make clean
sudo make -j4

heck the VCOM value on the FPC

6inch-HD-e-Paper-HAT-Manual-06.png

Add the VCOM value as paramter and test the e-Paper, and this model is mode 0.

sudo ./epd -2.51 0
  • Demo execution phenomenon:

1) First, the r-paper will refresh the 16 gray bars partially in sequence.

2) Then demonstrate the demo of drawing lines, circles, rectangles, characters, and numbers

3) Then respectively demonstrate the demo of displaying bmp pictures in 1bp, 2bp, and 4bp modes

4) Next, demonstrate the effect of fast refresh in A2 mode

5) Then display a gif animation

6) Then demonstrate a Demo that counts the frame rate

7) Finally, the e-paper is whitened in Init mode for long-term storage.

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 need a few of GPIO, 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

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 switch to SPI mode

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

3) Download demo code to refresh picture

You can download the demo code here

Open the project with keil :Open429I-C-IT8951-Demo\Project\9.7-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. After downloading, the

I80


1) Hardware connection

IT8951 STM32 Description
Vcc 5V 5V Power input
GND GND Ground
DBUS0~DBUS15 PB0~PB15 Data pins
HWE PC1 Write enable (Low active)

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

2) Set the switch to I80 mode

9.7inch-e-Paper-HAT-Manual-17.jpg

3) Display with demo code

You can download the demo code here

Open project and change set the interface to I80.

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 1200*825 (the resolution of this e-Paper)

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

9.7inch-e-Paper-HAT-Manual-19.jpg

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

9.7inch-e-Paper-HAT-Manual-20.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, detect unusable information

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.
