Image of 2.7 inch E-paper Display

A display module using e-paper technology. It only consumes power when changing content.

The module use the EM027BS013 from Pervasive Displays.

Note that previous versions of the board used the now obsolete EM027AS012 display. The new and old displays are not 100% software compatible.

The display has an SPI interface and some extra control signals. The display module connects to Embedded Artists’ standard 14-pos expansion connector. Several of our products have the connector on-board.
