Soldered Inkplate 6COLOR
Soldered Inkplate 6COLOR

If you’re like us, you thought: “If only I could use a screen like this in my project”, first time you saw an e-book reader. Thanks to the exceptional sharpness and contrast, the ability to display in sunlight and truly unprecedented efficiency in terms of energy (it consumes energy only when changing the content on the screen), electronic paper is the ideal choice for many applications. Inkplate 6COLOR, continuing the tradition of the now well-known Inkplate series, continues to offer variations of e-paper accessible to hobbyists and everyone else in a way that we have made plug-and-play hardware, really easy to use and compatible with Arduino and micropython. Inkplate 6COLOR brings a unique innovation – the ability to display colors on the screen.

 

 

If we want to list only a few features, Epaper Inkplate 6COLOR has a 5.85-inch folded e-paper that displays a total of 7 different colors (Black, White, Red, Yellow, Blue, Green, and Orange). Considering the built-in dithering capability, the results you can get on the screen are really impressive. Powered by ESP32, you will have strong microcontroller with WiFi and Bluetooth on your disposal. It’s super-low-power (18uA) so you can use it for days, weeks, or months out of a single battery charge. Using our Arduino library (100% compatible with Adafruit GFX), it’s 5 minute work to get the board running for you. The Micropython module is available as well.  It’s 100% open-source for both software and hardware. What is especially interesting is that Inkplate uses recycled screens taken from old e-book readers, which is very environmentally friendly, but you have to keep in mind that some screens may have small scratches because of this. All screens with large scratches and damages are not used at all.

 

 

Inkplate 6COLOR options:

 

With e-paper display & enclosure: This version offers a sturdy and sleek enclosure for your device, made with precision from a 3D printer. It’s perfect for those who want an extra layer of protection without any added features.

 

With e-paper display, enclosure, and battery: Upgrade to this version if you’re looking for both protection and mobility. This option includes a 3D-printed enclosure as well as an integrated battery, ensuring your device stays powered even on the go.

 

Without e-paper display: For those who prefer a simpler or alternative display solution, this version does not include the e-paper display. It’s ideal for users who have their own display solutions or prefer to use the device without a visual interface.

Step-down module with LM2596S
Step-down module with LM2596S

This module lowers the input voltage on the specified output voltage that you adjust through the trimmer on the board. It’s very practical because while changing the input voltage, the output voltage always stays the same. However, the input voltage has to be at least 0.7V higher than the output voltage.

Input voltage is IN+ and IN-, while the output is OUT+ and OUT- . A power supply is able only to bring the voltage down, not up!

 

It does not have a protective diode in case of the wrong polarity, pay attention while connecting!

The ULX3s offers a wide selection of useful features and interfaces that enable it to serve as a broad spectrum module for installation in complex devices.
Onboard peripherals such as SDRAM, USB, Digital video out, FM/ASK antenna, ADC and DAC can make it audio/video powerhouse for signal processing and synthesis, motor control or SDR cases. You can emulate arcade machines or retro computers like Minimig (Amiga) or modern systems like F32C (MIPS/RISCV). It has 56 GPIO pins, all routed as differential pairs and a PMOD compatible pinout, opening it to a wide range of expansion options. If you are just starting with FPGA, you can also use the ULX3S as powerful Arduino and program it using Arduino IDE in seconds.

 

ULX3S uses powerful Lattice Semiconductor ECP5 series FPGA chip supported by the latest open-source toolchains. This makes the ULX3S one of the most powerful and desirable platforms for FPGA enthusiasts available today. ULX3S comes equipped with onboard WiFi, display, buttons, LEDs and storage. Flash it using the WiFi connection (over-the-air update), or with one of the bitstreams stored on SD card and browsed by onboard OLED display and buttons. Due to its battery-backed RTC, it can power down completely and wake up only on certain events making it useful for low power applications.

 

It has been actively developed since 2016 and is the result of collaboration between Radiona.org / Zagreb Makerspace and FER – Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing – University of Zagreb, Croatia.

Soldered Inkplate 6PLUS with enclosure - e-paper display with touchscreen - USB only

If you’re like us, the first time you saw an e-reader, you thought to yourself, “I could do something with that.” Thanks to clean lines, high contrast, daylight readability, and the remarkable level of energy efficiency that comes from drawing power only when changing the contents of the screen, e-paper is uniquely suited to many applications. Following Inkplate 6 and 10 success, with Inkplate 6PLUS we continue to make e-paper accessible to hobbyists and DIY product designers by offering a plug-and-play hardware platform that is super-easy to use and compatible with Arduino. 6PLUS adds touchscreen and frontlighting, making it a perfect solution for interactive projects.

 

To name a few features, Inkplate 6PLUS has stunning 6.0 inch e-paper display with refresh rate of 1.27s, greyscale mode and partial updates support. Additionally, it had touchscreen with possibility to detect two simultaneous touches, as well as front lighting controllable in 64 steps. Powered by ESP32, you will have strong microcontroller with WiFi and Bluetooth on your disposal. There’s Real Time Clock (RTC), additional GPIO pins, and more. Using our Arduino library (100% compatible with Adafruit GFX), it’s 5 minute work to get the board running for you. The Micropython module is available as well.  It’s 100% open-source for both software and hardware. What is especially interesting is that Inkplate uses recycled screens taken from old e-book readers, which is very environmentally friendly, but you have to keep in mind that some screens may have small scratches because of this. All screens with large scratches and damages are not used at all.
