*You should copy the esp8266-waveshare-epd folder to the %LOCALAPPDATA%\Arduino15\packages\esp8266\hardware\esp8266\2.7.1\libraries folder which is under the installation directory of IDE.
: The path may be different according to the version of Arduino IDE and the ESP8266 libraries, you need to modify it if it is different.
: The esp8266-waveshare-epd is saved under the examples directory.

Hardware connection

  • Raw panel + ESP8266 Driver Board
If you have the ESP8266 e-Paper Driver board as well as an e-Paper raw panel. You can just connect the e-paper panel to the ESP8266 board
Configure the switch according to the type of display

Trigger state e-Paper
A 1.54inch e-Paper, 2.13inch e-Paper, 2.13inch e-Paper (D), 2.9inch e-Paper
B 1.54inch e-Paper (B), 1.54inch e-Paper (C)

2.13inch e-Paper (B), 2.13inch e-Paper (C)
2.7inch e-Paper (B)
2.9inch e-Paper (C), 2.9inch e-Paper (B)
4.2inch e-Paper (B), 4.2inch e-Paper (C)
5.83inch e-Paper (B), 5.83inch e-Paper (C)
7.5inch e-Paper (B), 7.5inch e-Paper (C), 7.5inch HD e-Paper, 7.5inch HD e-Paper (B)

Note: The ACeP e-Paper doesn't support this connecting method.

  • e-Paper Module/HAT + ESP8266 Board
If you have the ESP8266 Board as well as the e-Paper module/HAT which has PCB already, you can wire the displays by 8-pin cable pin
Connect to ESP8266 Driver Board
e-Paper ESP8266
Vcc 3.3V

Run the Demo Codes

  • Open the Arduino IDE
  • Choose File->Examples-> waveshae-e-Paper -> And the project according to the type of display
