In stock

This is an E-Ink display HAT for Raspberry Pi, 2.13inch, 250x122 resolution, with embedded controller, communicating via the SPI interface. This E-Ink display and HAT supports partial screen refreshes, to speed up screen updates.

 

This is version 2 display is also the recommended low-power display for the Pwnagotchi, and can be configured as the waveshare_2 device.

Due to the advantages like ultra low power consumption, wide viewing angle, clear display without electricity, it is an ideal choice for applications such as shelf label, industrial instrument, and so on.

A great introduction to e-paper displays

Originally got this for a pwnagotchi. Turns out to be easily programmable. With a raspberry pi 0w, it is low profile enough to be a hacker's smartwatch. Drawing speed is on par with other epaper displays at roughly 1frame/sec, with some ghosting to be expected, but a full screen refresh can clear all ghosting effects. Occasionally there would be a grey background instead of white, although that was when the device was powering down so I suspect this would have to do with residual charge rather than the screen itself. Despite it not as bug-free as the displays found on other ebook readers, it has a high reliability rate for drawing when used as a smartwatch display, and its interface is easy to program. So far I've used C and Python. A must-have for anyone with an RPi.
