MCU board starter kit creates e-paper displays
To integrate e-paper into a project, Pervasive Displays has announced an e-paper shield starter kit. The kit was created by SonikTech and is open-sourced and based around the Teensy LC microcontroller board.
E-paper displays do not require a power source to maintain an image and give crisp, detailed text and images, explain the e-paper display manufacturer. Displays are fully readable in sunlight with no backlighting needed.
There are three types of kit, each containing an adapter board which is compatible with the Teensy LC microcontroller and is compatible with any other microcontroller which uses the common SPI protocol to connect with the company’s E2215CS062 e-paper screen.
As e-paper works best at room temperature, a digital thermometer on the adapter board communicates with the microcontroller via an I²C interface.
Until the end of November, every pledge made to the Crowd Supply website earns a kit containing all the parts needed to get started using e-paper for prototypes, designs, and installations.
