Microcontroller Boards E-Paper Home Automation Crowdfunding Project

The Inkplate 6 MOTION is an e-paper display board that stands out for its ability to achieve a refresh rate of 11 frame-per-second (FPS) through supercharging. This means users can enjoy improved and faster video and animation experiences on the Inkplate 6 MOTION.

The Fastest E-Paper Screen You’re Likely to Find

The Inkplate 6 MOTION features a high-quality display where text and images are presented in high contrast, sunlight-readable grayscale or black-and-white, ultimately providing users with a comfortable paper-like reading experience. In addition, the remarkable refresh time of the Inkplate 6 MOTION is approximately 100 milliseconds per frame.


Wildly Hackable & Remarkably Easy to Use

The Inkplate 6 MOTION boasts strong usability: only need to connect it to your computer using the provided USB cable, and then you can proceed to do whatever you want.

On the software front, it is also very user-friendly (Developers can program it through Arduino using the Inkplate library). Thanks in part to our extensive collection of example applications, users can get up and running with just a few lines of code. The code structure is based on Adafruit's GFX library. By the way, if Python is more preferred, the MicroPython module can also meet your needs.

Features & Specifications

  • A 6.0-inch, 1448 x 1072 e-paper display with support for grayscale, partial updates, and accelerated refresh cycles
  • STM32 microcontroller, with a secondary ESP32 microcontroller for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 (BLE) connectivity
  • External SRAM memory
  • Extremely low-power, battery- or USB-powered operation that wrings days, weeks, or months out of a single charge
  • MicroSD card reader from which Inkplate can pull images to display
  • Real-time clock (RTC)
  • Additional GPIO pins, easyC / Qwiic compatibility, and support for I²C and SPI
  • Supported by an Arduino library that is 100% compatible with Adafruit GFX and a MicroPython module that facilitates rendering of text, images, and line art
  • Dimensions: 5.67 x 4.21 inches (14.4 x 10.7 cm)
