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. With Inkplate 6, our goal is 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.
To name a few features, Inkplate 6 has a stunning 6 inch e-paper display with refresh rate of 1.26s, with partial update 264ms, greyscale mode and partial updates support. Powered by ESP32, you will have a powerful microcontroller with WiFi and Bluetooth at your disposal. Using our Arduino library, takes only 5 mintues to get the board up and running for you. It’s 100% open-source for both software and hardware, so it’s OSHWA certified. 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.
* Please note: some of the Inkplates might come without 1 piece of MCP23017 IO expander. That IC does not limit any Inkplate functionality, only reduces number of IO pins. Due to component shortage, we are having very hard time sourcing those. We are sorry for this and we will provide 10% discount with those Inkplate boards.
