New eInk display driver!

Version 0.9.0

This is the first community release of a NEW eInk adapter Click board™ driver for the P2.

This is a .spin2 port from the Mikroe C examples and a merge of the support for 4 devices. Meaning this .spin2 driver is intended to support all 4 eInk display geometries. [1.54" square, and 2.00", 2.13" and 2.90" rectangular]

Additions capabilities in this driver (over the code ported)

  • Set background color
  • Set region background color
  • Show bitmap in region as color w/rotation
  • Draw line, box, circle
  • Supports 1.54" square, 2.00" (older), 2.13" and 2.90" rectangular eInk displays

Visit the P2-Click-eInk project repository for much more detail.

The code can be downloaded currently from the releases page.

If you find code that you believe is not working correctly then please file an issue at my github repository issues page

What's next? Hardware is on the way so I'll be testing with 4 eInk displays to ensure the driver is working well. Currently, it works well with the combo display and board set from Parallax. The other eInk display sizes can be ordered from Mikroe.com while the 2.00" display is found at mouser.com. See the Repo doc's page for links to ordering these sizes.

Enjoy!

    Known Issues w/v0.9.1

    • The 2.00" display is not yet working!

      • The hardware for 2.00" display just arrived... now I have to test it and adapt the code to it
    • I'm sure there are more issues...

    If you find code that you believe is not working correctly (yes, you may find some...) then please file an issue at my github repository issues page. Feel free to request features at this same page

    We can discuss issues with the use of these displays or this driver here in this thread.

    I'll be adding font-related features and finishing support for the 2.00" display

    Enjoy!
