Pico e-Paper 2.13 module for the Raspberry Pi Pico

by rp2040guy71

This display module has been designed for the Raspberry Pi Pico – you just push your Pico into the female headers and you’re ready to go.

E-paper display utilizes microcapsule electrophoretic technology for displaying, the principle is: charged particles suspended in clear fluid will move to sides of microcapsule when electric field is applied, making the microcapsule become visible by reflecting ambient light, just as traditional printed paper.

E-paper display will clearly display images/texts under lamplight or natural light, requires no backlight, and features nearly up to 180° viewing angle. It is usually used as e-reader due to its paper-like effect.

2.13inch e-Paper is an Active Matrix Electrophoretic Display (AMEPD), with interface and a reference system design. The 2.13” active area contains 250×122 pixels, and has 1-bit B/W full display capabilities. An integrated circuit contains gate buffer, source buffer, interface, timing control logic, oscillator, DC-DC. SRAM.LUT, VCOM and border are supplied with each panel.
