All-inclusive e-paper evaluation pack

February 28, 2017 // By Julien Happich
This month, e-paper display maker Pervasive Displays is giving readers of EE Times Europe the chance to win one of five e-paper display (EPD) starter kits worth 250 Euros each. EPD technology mimics the appearance of ink on paper and holds text and images indefinitely, even without electricity.

Each pack comes with the company's EPD Extension Kit Gen 2 (EXT2) with its powerful PDi Apps utility, TI's ARM Cortex-M4F based TM4C123G LaunchPad evaluation kit onto which the EXT2 board can be directly stacked to run various applications, and several of PDi’s e-paper labelling displays including the 2.71" eTC (264x176 pixels at 117dpi), the 2.87” iTC (296x128 pixels at 112dpi) and the 4.2” iTC (400x300 pixels at 120dpi). Designers can also use the on-board headers of the EXT2 to bridge with a current product design or any other development kit. Additionally, the EXT2 provides on-board driver circuits to support applications with EPDs that use external or internal timing controllers (such as the eTC or iTCs that are provided in the pack) and builds with different material films.

A newly released PaPiRus Hat for Raspberry Pi from Pi Supply is included that is capable of driving e-paper displays of various sizes.

And last month’s winner is…

In our previous reader offer, Toposens was giving away one Evaluation Kit V1.0 based around its ground-breaking ultrasound-based 3D mapping technology, for eeNews Europe 's readers to win.

Lucky winner is Mr. M. McLeod from the UK should be receiving his package soon. Let's wish him some interesting findings with his projects.
