Soldered Inkplate 4 TEMPERA
Soldered Inkplate 4 TEMPERA

Inkplate 4 TEMPERA is an easy-to-use, all-in-one device that puts the power of e-paper technology in the palm of your hand. Behind its 3.8-inch, 600×600-pixel e-paper touchscreen, it packs the following features into one compact, elegant package: frontlighting, an abundance of sensors, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, a built-in battery, and a low-power operating mode.

 

In this digital age, screens are the windows through which we interact with much of our world, and e-paper technology addresses many of the challenges posed by conventional screens. More specifically, they offer high contrast, daylight readability, and unparalleled energy efficiency. And there is one more thing that sets our screens apart: sustainability. Every Inkplate 4 TEMPERA gives new life to an ED038TH2 E Ink display that we’ve rescued from a tragic future as e-waste. We’d rather see these screens in your hands than in a landfill.

 

Inkplate 4 TEMPERA is powered by the ESP32 microcontroller, to which we’ve added all of the peripherals we thought you might find useful. Inside the enclosure is a 1200-mAh battery and power-management circuitry so you can charge it easily and determine its remaining charge accurately. Inkplate 4 TEMPERA’s real-time clock (RTC) allows for precise time measurements, and its microSD card slot allows you to to store and display images, among other applications. If you’re looking for sensors, you’ll find a gyroscope and an accelerometer, as well as temperature, humidity, air quality, and gesture sensors. Inkplate 4 TEMPERA also has a built-in, frequency-adjustable buzzer. And of course, it includes various GPIO pins that support peripheral connectivity through a GPIO expander or via the easyC ecosystem.

 

So, if you’re in the market for a nice-looking screen on which you can display whatever you want—wherever, at whatever time of day, and for however long you want—we invite you to check out Inkplate 4 TEMPERA. We think you’ll find it delightful!

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

Soldered Inkplate 5
Soldered Inkplate 5

Introducing the Inkplate 5, a versatile Arduino & Micropython compatible board that features a recycled 5.2″ E-Ink (e-paper) display with rapid refresh times of only 0.19 seconds. This fully open-source, plug-and-play device, powered by an ESP32 microcontroller, is designed to connect effortlessly to the internet via WiFi or to other devices through Bluetooth.

 

 

Its energy-efficient design allows for ultra-low power consumption, making it capable of running for months on a single Li-ion battery charge. The Inkplate 5 is not just about power and connectivity; it’s also about convenience. The onboard microSD slot and a Real-Time Clock ensure unlimited data capabilities and precise timekeeping. The device even boasts numerous GPIO pins, allowing for easy expansion of your projects with virtually any peripheral.

 

 

Inkplate 5’s e-paper panel display is a visual delight. It provides beautiful, crisp image under all conditions, including direct sunlight, that’s always-on. Its screen resolution is 960 x 540 pixels, in monochrome, with black, white and 6 shades of grey support. The most interesting bit? The E-Ink screen does not require any power in between screen updates.

Inkplate 5 does a full refresh as quick as 1.02s for full refresh and 0.19s for partial refresh. That’s 5fps, if you wish.

 

 

Our device is a fantastic entry point for those wanting to experiment with E-Ink technology, all neatly packed into a compact board.

 

 

Inkplate 5 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.
