This product has reached end of life, While we don't have a perfect replacement for this display, we do have other available ePaper Display Modules

ePaper Display - 2.9", Red + 3-Level Grayscale

Part Number: CFAP128296B0-0290

This 2.9 inch 128x296 ePaper module is a great choice where low power consumption is essential. After the bi-stable ePaper glass displays an image, the image remains indefinitely without additional power, making it a perfect highly readable low energy display for your product.

Built-in voltage generation requires only a few external components. Ultra thin with a depth of 1.18 mm and weight of only 7.35 grams, epaper has an obvious advantage over other display technologies for small handheld battery operated devices or devices powered by solar. Epaper displays are rapidly growing in popularity for store shelf labels and can be scanned by a barcode reader.

  • Wide viewing angle, highly readable from any direction.
  • Supports 4 wire SPI for communications
  • In a bright area, the anti-glare hard coated display is still easy to read.
  • Bi-stable image displays without any flickering.
  • Long lifetime: ~5 years / ~1M updates.

For a quick demonstration 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) .
