Pervasive Displays e-Paper Screens
E-paper screens only require power to change the display. Otherwise, they need no power supply: this feature makes them the ideal solution for ultra-low-power applications.
Pervasive Displays offers a wide range of e-paper screens, with two colours in black and white, or three colours in black-white-red or black-white-yellow.
A new version of the 2.71" monochrome screen offers fast display, more than 3.5 times faster, reviewed at Pervasive Displays e-Paper Screen with Fast Update.
The screens are driven by the Pervasive Displays e-Paper EPD Extension Kit Gen 3. The compact board is universal and connects to any controller through SPI. The section Connecting the e-Paper EPD Extension Kit Gen 3 provides examples for popular boards.
It replaces the previous generations Pervasive Displays e-Paper EPD Extension Kit Gen 2 and Pervasive Displays e-Paper EPD Extension Kit in BoosterPack form-factor for the LaunchPad boards.
I also designed my own FRAM-based E-Paper Screen Controller.
Connecting the e-Paper EPD Extension Kit Gen 3 is as easy as counting from 1 to 10.
