  • E-paper Adapter board contoured to fit Teensy-LC module ( 18 mm x 36 mm )

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:

  • No power needed to maintain an image
  • Crisp, detailed text and pictures
  • No backlight required
  • Fully sunlight readable

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!

Three Versions

  • The Full Kit: Everything you need to start using E-paper within minutes of receiving it! Comes with the E-paper adapter, E-paper Screen, and a Teensy-LC.
  • The Adapter Pack If you already have your own Teensy or other 3.3 V microcontroller, this pack is for you. Comes with the E-paper adapter and an E-paper Screen.
  • The E-paper Adapter: If you are looking to integrate the E-paper board into an existing solution, you can purchase just the board by itself. Comes with just the E-paper adapter.
