ePaper Display - 2.13", 3-Level Grayscale

Part Number: CFAP104212A0-0213

This 104x212 ePaper graphic display module is a great choice for low power applications. After something is displayed, it remains visible without any power. The small pixel pitch shows off the fine detail in the ePapers 3-level grayscale image.

Built-in voltage generation requires a few external components. Ultra-thin with a depth of 0.98 and weight of only 3.36, epaper has an obvious advantage over other display technologies for small handheld battery-operated devices, such as devices powered by a small solar cell. Epaper displays are rapidly growing in popularity for store shelf labels and can be scanned by barcode readers.

  • With a wide, symmetrical viewing angle, use this display in landscape or portrait orientation.
  • Supports 4 wire SPI for communications
  • Just like print on paper, these displays are easy to read under bright light.
  • Bistable image requires no power to keep on screen.
  • Long lifetime: ~5 years / ~1M updates.

For a quick start, use our sample code on the Datasheets & Files tab to display your own images. Our open-source demonstration code runs directly on a low cost Seeeduino v4.2 (3.3v Arduino clone) .
