The Raspberry Pi Pico is a very powerful microcontroller, especially when compared to an Arduino Uno. Yet most of the time we reach for a board to test with, we pick an Uno! This is because the Uno is easier to prototype with.
Well, today we’ll change all that and build three different “Pico Uno” boards that have the power of the RP2040 and the ease of use of an Arduino Uno.
e-Paper displays have a number of unique features, such as being visible in broad daylight, consuming very little current, and retaining their image when powered down. But they also have some disadvantages – they have poor refresh rates, limited color capability, and are more expensive than other display types.
in some applications, however, e-Paper is a perfect choice, and today we will see how to use these displays with both an Arduino and Raspberry Pi.
