Project update 11 of 11
Exciting news, the Inkplate family is getting a new member! It is the same easy-to-use e-paper board you’ve come to know and love with the Inkplate series. Now with 540 x 960 pixels packed into 5.2" display, it’s a very interesting form factor with a high resolution, new-generation panel.
Inkplate 5 is an Arduino-compatible board that features a 5.2" e-paper display. The display is capable of showing grayscale images or making partial refreshes with fast refresh times. It is a plug-and-play device, programmable via a USB port, and controlled by an ESP32 microcontroller with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. Requiring only 18 uA in low-power mode, Inkplate 5 can last for months on a single Li-ion battery charge. It’s simple enough to be used by beginners, but it also offers plenty of features and a user-friendly platform for advanced users. Inkplate 5 continues the legacy of the Inkplate family, now redesigned and more feature-packed than ever.
Inkplate 5 is currently getting ready for launch on Crowd Supply. You can subscribe to receive updates as soon as the campaign launches.
