for Soldered Inkplate 2
by herrmann.leon on April 04, 2024

Lovely little device. Especially easy to get into it as a beginner with other easyC components. The screen has great visibility but is quite slow to update. Would definitely recommend it to beginners or enthusiasts who want to quickly play around with an e-paper display.
