Product Description

This product is retired and we won’t sell it anymore. This page is for reference 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. Using our Arduino library, it’s 5 minute job to get the board running for you. 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.
