E-paper in Your Next Project

Do you have a great idea that needs a screen which requires zero power to maintain an image? Are you looking to add an interesting display to your next project? Want to prototype a low-cost, persistent screen that can be read in direct sunlight? You may have seen E-paper in e-book readers and dynamic store displays for some time now. Because of its complex driving circuitry, it has remained out of reach for hobbyists until now. Recent advances in E-paper technology have made it easier for the beginner to take advantage of E-paper’s unique properties:

Now anyone can try out their next idea by using the E-paper Shield Kit: an easy to use starter pack that is familiar for hobbyists and welcoming to newcomers.

Working with an E-paper manufacturer’s engineering team, I have designed an E-paper adapter board that anyone can use to easily draw on E-paper. Now I’d like to share it with the world!

My adapter board was designed with the popular, easy-to-use Teensy microcontroller in mind, though it is also compatible with any other microcontroller that uses the common SPI protocol. Since e-paper displays work best when they know the ambient temperature, I’ve included a digital thermometer on the adapter board that communicates with the Teensy (or any other microcontroller) via an I2C interface.

With your pledge, you will receive a kit containing all the parts you need to get started using E-paper for your prototypes, designs, and installations. Wondering if E-paper is right for you? Send me a message here on Crowd Supply, or at jarek@soniktech.com, and I’ll do my best to answer any questions you have!
