This is an ARM based single board Linux computer with a 6 inch diagonal E Ink Vizplex display. Within its very thin profile is a powerful Atmel AT91SAM9G45 ARM9 processor, 128MB of memory, large capacity SD card storage, plus Ethernet, USB and serial interfaces. One of the best features of e-paper is that zero power is used to keep an image on screen, so your image can be shown even after the device is turned off.
Since the module runs embedded Linux, many high-level applications such as networking tools, browsers, PDF readers, even spreadsheets, are instantly available. Developers writing their own software will find ready to use toolchains, cross-compilers, package managers and broad support from the mobile Linux community. The module is also designed to abstract the Broadsheet EPD controller, which means you can write to a more generic display driver, making your code more portable and versatile.
The CFA910 can be ordered with an optional touchscreen and expansion/development board. The capabilities and extent that this prototype kit can be customized are unequaled by any other e-paper development platform.
