Paperino PL_microEPD Arduino Library

Welcome to the Paperino docs!

Paperino E-Paper Shield for Particle, Breakout Board and Driver Module Paperino E-Paper Shield for Particle, Breakout Board and Driver Module

Hardware Library for the 1.1” E-Paper display (EPD) from Plastic Logic for Adafruits GFX library.

Documentation

This is the place to get started with your new hardware! ;-) We have divided the documentation into the following sections:

  • Hookup Guide - Step-by-step instructions to get your Paperino setup and run within minutes.
  • Examples - Ready to use examples for your own inspiration.
  • Reference - Datasheets & Application Notes.
  • Hardware - Schematics & PCB layouts.
So, what is Paperino?

Paperino is an easy to use micro EPD breakout-board for the Photon or other Arduino-compatible microcontrollers. The eInk-based ePaper display mimics the appearance of natural paper and is capable of holding text and images indefinitely, even without electricity. This makes Paperino perfect for your next battery-driven, connected project where the display content changes rarely.

Paperino also integrates an easy to use accelerometer. It extends the EPD by tap-sensing functions and offers portrait/landscape detection. Furthermore you can wake-up your MCU after movement-based events from deep-sleeping, saving battery live during waiting phases.

Installation

Recent Arduino IDE releases as well as the Particle & Arduino Web-IDEs include the Library Manager for easy installation. You can install this library by searching for PL_microEPD.
