Inkplate 6 with slightly scratched e-paper display

Name Inkplate 6 with slightly scratched e-paper display
Price
€73.01
(for 1 pc)
SKU000199

MOQ: 1 piece

As you might know, Inkplate 6 uses refurbished e-paper panels from used Kindle, Kobo or other e-paper readers. That means that readers, from which the displays are taken, are no longer functional for some reason (not the screen), but the screen is still working. They are cleaned and prepared for a reuse. Since these panels were really used, there are some usage marks, such as scratchs on the screen. Those, with scratches, are part of this Inkplate 6 version, and they are still functional as usual. We decided to do this in order to recycle as many as possible of these screens. 



If you’re like us, the first time you saw an e-reader, you thought to yourself, "I could do something with that." Thanks to clean lines, high contrast, daylight readability, and the remarkable level of energy efficiency that comes from drawing power only when changing the contents of the screen, e-paper is uniquely suited to many applications. With Inkplate 6, our goal is to make e-paper accessible to hobbyists and DIY product designers by offering a plug-and-play hardware platform that is super-easy to use and compatible with Arduino. 


 


To name a few features, Inkplate 6 has stunning 6 inch e-paper display with refresh rate of 1.26s, with partial update 1.26s, with partial update 264ms, greyscale mode and partial updates support. Powered by ESP32, you will have strong microcontroller with WiFi and Bluetooth on your disposal. Using our Arduino library, it's 5 minute work to get the board running for you. It's 100% open-source for both software and hardware, so it's OSHWA certified.


 


• a 6-inch, 800x600 pixel e-paper display with support for greyscale, partial updates, and accelerated refresh cycles
• an on-board ESP32 microcontroller with integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 (BLE)
• extremely low-energy, battery- or USB-powered operation (including a 25 µA sleep state) that wrings days, weeks, or months out of a single charge, as well as charger for that battery
• a microSD card reader from which Inkplate 6 can pull images to display
• three capacitive touch pads
• a form factor that's optimized for the design of custom enclosures
• additional GPIO pins, easyC/Qwiic compatibility, and support for I²C and SPI
• Arduino libraries (100% compatible with Adafruit GFX) and a MicroPython module (work in progress!) that facilitate the rendering of text, images, and line art
• Comes without enclosure
Dimensions: 151 x 119.60 x 12 mm
