This product has reached end of life  Here's a list of ePaper modules we have available.

2.13 Inch 3-color ePaper display

Part Number: CFAP104212E0-0213

ePaper displays are the perfect solution for low power environments where saving energy is key. This 3-color ePaper is perfect for electronic shelf labels, battery-operated devices that require minimal display refreshing or semi-static signage. Whatever you decide to use them for Crystalfontz is here to support you.

This ePaper module has 104x212 pixel resolution packed in a 2.13 inch diagonal screen. 3-colors gives you the ability to make certain elements stand out in yellow, white or black. To extend the life of your ePaper display its recommended you limit refreshing the display to one refresh every few minutes. So if you want to play video, this isn't going to work for you and instead we'd recommend a TFT or OLED display module.

Use our free ePaper software to prepare your bitmap image for this display.

* This ePaper DOES NOT supports partial refresh
