Any commercial e-ink display can be driven by RasPi.cil8 wrote:I'm wondering if exists a big e-ink display (7 inches or more) that could be driven by RPi.
Unfortunately, no.cil8 wrote:Does this mean there's a wiring standard for e-ink displays?
You have two possibilities:cil8 wrote:Could you tell me more about it?
Yes. (Add "SPI" to your google search string).cil8 wrote:So my "quest" now is look for the display + driver board pair, and how to connect the driver board to the RPi.
Same for me here, but i am eager to find a solution as soon as this here is affordable (below 100€)cil8 wrote:Sorry for the late answer, I'm reading your question right now.
I still didn't start working to the project. I realized that I need at least a 10 inches display, or bigger. Unfortunately a display this big plus its driver board ( i.e. http://www.pervasivedisplays.com/products/102 ) is very expensive. So I decided to hold this project over.
The Pervasive Displays one has a USB mass storage controller (not included), you would use a program they supply to convert images to a special format, then copy that image onto the mass storage device presented by the controller, and it would be displayed.PieRas wrote:If I get the Pervasive Displays e-ink display with the MCU and attach it directly to the RPi will it work immediately or I need to get some sort of software?

I think you should go for an e-ink display with HDMI input port. It lets you to have a terminal just plugging it in. Using GPIO there is no standard protocol to drive a display as a local display, and terminal emulators expect to show their output on local displays.RevAndrey wrote:ePaper display to run Terminal + Vim

just for the record, I sucessfully bought and command a 10.2'' Pervasive Display with a Raspberry Pi (3).
At first I used a usb-to-screen card they provided (MpicoSys USB2TCM Interface), but I wasn't satisfied, then I came across this github repo (https://github.com/Ceruleous/EPaperReader) that helped me a lot to wire directly from the GPIO to the screen card, and display whatever content I want:
But true: the refresh rate is low, the screen is expensive and you don't have grayscale pixel, just black and white.
