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, 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.
This is a version of the board without an e-paper screen, so you need to add your own screen. We decided to offer it after numerous requests for a board to which you could add your screen you already might own. The part numbers of the screens that work with this board are: AC057TC1.
Since it is a development kit, this board comes without a warranty.
