Building on the previously successfully launched e-paper displays in the form of the Inkplate 6 and larger Inkplate 10, built on ESP32 and programmable with Arduino IDE or MicroPython. The latest edition to the range the Inkplate 5 will soon be available to purchase via crowd supply and offers an 540 x 960 pixels packed into 5.2″ e-paper display.
Inkplate 5 is an Arduino compatible board that features a 5.2″ e-paper display. The display is capable of showing grayscale images or making partial refreshes with fast refresh times. It is a plug-and-play device, programmable via a USB port, and controlled by an ESP32 microcontroller with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
Requiring only 18 uA in low-power mode, Inkplate 5 can last for months on a single Li-ion battery charge. It’s simple enough to be used by beginners, but it also offers plenty of features and a user-friendly platform for advanced users. Inkplate 5 continues the legacy of the Inkplate family, now redesigned and more feature-packed than ever.
