Inkplate 6 MOTION brings something new to our family of Inkplate e-paper boards. We’ve kept the signature usability but supercharged the display to achieve an 11-frame-per-second (FPS) refresh rate, which is blazing fast for an e-paper device. Experience less lag, better video, and more captivating animations with Inkplate 6 MOTION.
Inkplate 6 MOTION renders text and images in high-contrast, daylight-readable grayscale or black-and-white. The result a natural, organic, paper-like aesthetic that’s incredibly easy on the eyes. And its refresh time is crazy fast at around 100 ms per frame!
Inkplate 6 MOTION is all about usability. If you don’t want to poke around behind the curtain, you don’t have to. Just connect it to your computer using the supplied USB cable, and do your thing. That’s all there is to it.
And our software—programmable via Arduino thanks to our Inkplate library—is as user friendly as our hardware. Thanks in part to our rich collection of sample applications, you can be up and running with just a few lines of code. In fact, you might already be familiar with the code structure, as it’s based on Adafruit’s GFX Library. And don’t worry, if you prefer Python, our MicroPython module has you covered.
Inkplate 6 MOTION is open hardware driven by open-source software. We publish our hardware design files and software on GitHub and maintain our documentation online. And, if you don’t find what you’re looking for above, we also provide free technical support through email.
