A Thank You & Answers to Some Questions

A huge thank you to all my backers for bringing me so close to my goal! I’m so excited that all of you are as enthusiastic about E-paper as I am. If you know any friends or groups who would get a kick out of playing with E-paper too, please let them know about this campaign by sharing using the social media buttons on the right, or just sending them the link to the campaign page.

In addition to examples and code, I will also be using these updates to answer questions I’ve gotten, such as:

Does the E-paper Shield support the rest of the Teensy family?
Yes! I have personally tested the Shield with a Teensy LC, 3.2, and 3.5, and can confirm the Shield will work with any 3.3 volt Teensy device that uses the same pinout as the Teensy LC.

Can the E-paper Shield be used with a 5 volt microcontroller, such as an Arduino Uno?
Yes! In the next update I will publish photos and examples of how you can use a “level shifter” to safely connect your 3.3 Volt E-paper Shield to a 5 Volt Arduino Uno. Stay tuned!

The first example I would like to publish was based on an idea one of my backers, Brandon M., shared with me. The small size, exceptional legibility, and low-power consumption of E-paper makes the Shield Kit perfect for a “Quote-A-Day” project, and the low price makes it a great gift!

You can find all the code needed to run this example at our Hackaday page.

I also 3D-printed a small enclosure for this example; you can find the 3D file for this enclosure inside the code folder above.

If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, project ideas, or just want to chat, feel free to reach out to me at jarek@soniktech.com or by clicking the “Ask A Question” button below. In the next update, I will show you how to use the E-paper Shield’s built-in temperature sensor to display the current temperature on-screen, and how to send alerts whenever the temperature crosses a certain threshold.
