e-Paper with Arduino & Raspberry Pi

e-Paper with Arduino & Raspberry Pi

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.

Arduino Nano RP2040 Connect – Arduino meets Raspberry Pi

Arduino Nano RP2040 Connect

The much-anticipated Arduino Nano RP2040 Connect board has a Raspberry Pi RP2040 MCU with ESP32-based WiFi and Bluetooth. The board also sports a 6-axis IMU with Machine Learning, a built-in MEMS Microphone, and a Cryptographic Coprocessor.

Today we will learn how to set up our development environment to work with this exciting new board, and we’ll run a few Arduino-supplied example sketches.
