ESP32 E-Ink

ESP32 2.13 Inch E-Paper Screen DEPG0213BN TTGO T5

Features

  • No backlight, keeps displaying last content for a long time even when power down
  • Ultra low power consumption, basically power is only required for refreshing
  • Comes with development resources and manual (examples for Arduino-esp32)

Specifications

  • Operating voltage: 3.3V
  • Interface: 3-wire SPI, 4-wire SPI
  • Display color: black, white
  • Grey level: 2
  • Full refresh time: 8s
  • Refresh power: 26.4mW(typ.)
  • Driver chip:SSD1680
  • Display Driver:DEPG0213BN

This is a 2.13-inch DES electronic paper display with a resolution of 212x104 and communication via SPI interface

The driver IC includes gate buffer, source buffer, time control logic, oscillator, DC-DC, SRAM, LUT, VCOM, and each panel provides a frame.

Wide operating temperature range: -20℃ ~ 60℃.
