Alternatively, a breakout board can be used to connect other Arduino-compatible micro-controllers with 3.3 V outputs and sufficient SRAM. It fits into breadboards, can stand up vertically, or can be screwed into your own individual housing.
How is Paperino Different?
A variety of unique features sets Paperino apart from the competition:
- Glass-free Display
Paperino is lightweight and thinner than other ePaper products because it uses a glass-free ePaper display from Plastic Logic.
It weighs 1.2 grams and is only 0.5 mm thick.
- Supports Four Gray Levels
Unlike many other ePaper products out there, Paperino can support four gray levels instead of two (black and white).
- Fast, Partial Updates
You don’t have to wait for slow, full screen updates to load. With Paperino, you can quickly update only parts of the screen.
The integrated accelerometer lets you interact with your Paperino in all sorts of ways, including tap sensing. Tap sensing capability can
trigger screen updates or wake up your microcontroller.
Features & Specifications:
Paperino supports the UC8156-based ePaper display from Plasticlogic and Accelerometer BMA250E from Bosch. Communication for both devices is based on SPI/3.3 V. The Paperino shield is plug-and-play compatible with Photon, Electron and Bluz. The Paperino breakout board can be used for manually wiring your favourite, Arduino-compatible microcontroller with 3.3 V and >4kb of free RAM.
