Description

Easy e-paper finally comes to Raspberry Pi, with this bonnet that's designed to make it a breeze to add a 2.13" 250x122 crisp monochromic eInk display. Chances are you've seen one of those new-fangled 'e-readers' like the Kindle or Nook. They have gigantic electronic paper 'static' displays - that means the image stays on the display even when power is completely disconnected. The image is also high contrast and very daylight readable. It really does look just like printed paper!

The Adafruit 2.13" Monochrome E-Ink Bonnet for Raspberry Pi snaps onto any modern Raspberry Pi and provides a Python-programmable display with two buttons that can be used to select programs or scroll through options.

We have two fun starter guides to use with this bonnet, an Open Weather display and an event calendar that auto-syncs with a Google Calendar to show you what your next meeting or event is. We also have examples in our E-Ink Python library you can use to craft your own project

Comes completely pre-assembled and tested so you don't need to do anything but plug it in and install our Python code! Works with any Raspberry Pi computer that has a 2x20 connector, such as the Pi B+, Pi 2, Pi 3, Pi 4, Pi 5, and Pi Zero (and any others that have a 2x20 connector!)

On the bottom, we have a Qwiic/STEMMA QT connector for I2C sensors and devices so you can plug and play any of our STEMMA QT devices.

Technical Details

Revision History:

  • As of October 2022 – we've updated this PCB with Adafruit Pinguin to make a lovely and legible silkscreen - you may get the new PCB or the older version with vector fonts - both are identical other than the fancy silkscreen. Additionally, this bonnet may come with a  black or tan STEMMA QT connector. They work the same!
  • As of May 1, 2021 - we are now selling this bonnet with an E-Ink display that uses the SSD1680 chipset as the SSD1675 is discontinued/unavailable. The resolution and size are the same, but firmware/python code will need to be updated to use the SSD1680-driver in our library rather than SSD1675!
