A powerful modular system for developers who want to be able to mix and match microcontroller/SBC host boards and different ePaper or E Ink® displays.

Inky Developer allows developers plenty of flexibility to demonstrate concepts and showcase various types of ePaper displays. It consists of two parts - a host board that connects by cable to a display board.

Inky Developer includes some extra functionality that you won't find in the standard Inky range. As well as providing a sturdy base for the ePaper panel, the display board has four buttons for inputs, four RGB LEDs for visual feedback and it supports a low power sleep mode. All these functions are connected up via an I2C I/O expander so they use up a minimum of pins on your host microcontroller or SBC. They've also broken out headers for as many pins as possible on both boards, so there are plenty of options for connecting up extra hardware

Please Note:

  • Host boards and displays are sold separately so make sure you pick up one of each
  • Host and display boards both have broken out headers for the display pins, so you can connect them with alternate wiring if you don't want to use a JST-SH cable.
  • The Mini HAT includes unpopulated headers to provide easy access to unused Raspberry Pi pins (plus power and ground).
  • The display boards include a set of headers for the APA102 pins, so it's possible to add more LEDs onto the chain that's on the front of the board!
