Introduction

Feature

Based on Raspberry Pi 40pin GPIO interface, suitable for Raspberry Pi series core boards, Jetson Nano lead out SPI control interface, can be connected to Raspberry/Arduino/Nucleo and other onboard level conversion chips on main control boards, compatible with 3.3V and 5V microcontroller interfaces Provide information manual (Raspberry/Jetson Nano/Arduino/STM32 and other sample demo)

Parameter

  • Operating voltage: 3.3V/5V
  • Communication interface: 3-wire SPI, 4-wire SPI
  • Outline dimension: 65mm x 30.2mm
  • Fixed hole diameter: 3.0mm

Switch settings

There are two switches on the front panel of Drive HAT: Display Config and Interface Config.

Display Config Switch

The Display Config switch on e-Paper Driver HAT is made for being compatible with various SPI interface e-Paper panels from Waveshare. This switch has A and B sides. For connecting to different e-Paper raw panels, you can set the Display Config switch refer to the table below:

Switch to B Switch to A
1.54inch e-Paper (B) 1.54inch e-Paper
2.13inch e-Paper (B) 2.13inch e-Paper
2.7inch e-Paper 2.9inch e-Paper
2.7inch e-Paper (B)
2.9inch e-Paper (B)
4.2inch e-Paper
4.2inch e-Paper (B)
7.5inch e-Paper
7.5inch e-Paper (B)

Interface Config Switch

With Interface Config, you can change the SPI interface of e-Paper to 3-lin SPI or 4-line SPI

Switch to 0 Switch to 1
4-line SPI 3-line SPI

Note: Examples we provide use 4-line SPI by default

Example for 7.5inch e-Paper Switch Settings

Connecting the e-Paper Driver HAT to 7.5inch e-Paper, we must switch the Display Config to B according to the Display Config table above, and set the Interface Config to 0 to make the e-Paper work on 4-line SPI mode.

How to use

Working with Raspberry Pi

Installing libraries required

If you want to connect your E-paper screen to Raspberry Pi, you should install some necessary libraries, or else the Demo below may work improperly. For more information about how to install the Raspberry Pi libraries, please visit the website: Libraries Installation for RPi, where you can find the detailed presentation about the installations of libraries wiringPi, bcm2835 and python.

Hardware connection

Here is the connection between Raspberry Pi 3B and E-paper (BCM).

e-Paper Raspberry Pi 3B
3.3V 3.3V
GND GND
DIN MOSI
CLK SCLK
CS CE0
DC 25 (BCM)
RST 17 (BCM)
BUSY 24 (BCM)

Expected result

1) After the corresponding libraries installed, you can copy the relative programs into your Raspberry Pi, and then enter the corresponding file.

  • BCM2835: Execute the command: make, to compile the code and generate a file epd. Execute the command: sudo ./epd, the program will run.
  • WringPi: Execute the command: make, to compile the code and generate a file epd. Execute the command: sudo ./epd, the program will run.
  • Python: Execute the command: sudo python main.py

2) Image will be displayed on the screen.

  • Note:The refresh rate of this module is slow, and it will flicker for several times during refreshing. Please be patient.

Working with Arduino

Hardware connection

e-Paper Arduino UNO
3.3V 3V3
GND GND
DIN D11
CLK D13
CS D10
DC D9
RST D8
BUSY D7

Expected result

  1. Copy the libraries file of Arduino demo code to the libraries folder which is under the installation directory of Arduino IDE, it usually is C:\users\username\documents\arduino\libraries. You can also designate the location on Arduino IDE--> File -->Preferences -->Sketchbook location
  2. Upload the project.
  3. E-paper will display the image.

Note:

  • The refresh rate of this module is slow, and it will flicker for several times during refreshing. Please be patient.

Working with the STM32 development board

  • Here we use STM32F103ZE development board or NUCLEO-F103RB. (The demo code of 1.54inch/2.13inch/2.9inch e-Paper are based on NUCLEO-F103RB,

Others are based on STM32F103ZE)

  • The demo code is based on HAL, so you can port the demo code to other STM boards with STM32CubeMX.
  • The demo code can be compiled successfully in Keil v5

Hardware connection

Connecting to the STM32F103ZE:

e-Paper STM32F103ZE
3.3V 3V3
GND GND
DIN PA7 (MOSI)
CLK PA5 (SCK)
CS PA4
DC PA2
RST PA1
BUSY PA3

Connecting to the NUCLEO-F103RB:

e-Paper NUCLEO-F103RB
3.3V 3V3
GND GND
DIN PA7
CLK PA5
CS PB6
DC PC7
RST PA9
BUSY PA8

Expected result

  1. Open the project (epd-demo.uvprojx), which is under the MDK-ARM directory.
  2. Click Build to compile the project.
  3. Click Download to load the code to your board.
  • Reset, the screen will display image.
    Note: The refresh rate of this module is slow, and it will flicker for several times during refreshing. Please be patient.
