Inkplate 6PLUS e-paper display with touchscreen

by e-radionica

Inkplate 6PLUS has a stunning 6.0 inch e-paper display with refresh rate of 1.27s, greyscale mode and partial updates support. Additionally, it's a touchscreen able to detect two simultaneous touches, as well as front lighting controllable in 64 steps.

Thanks to clean lines, high contrast, daylight readability, and the remarkable level of energy efficiency that comes from drawing power only when changing the contents of the screen, e-paper is uniquely suited to many applications.

Following the success of Inkplate 6 and Inkplate 10, with Inkplate 6PLUS e-radionica continue to make e-paper accessible to hobbyists and DIY product designers by offering a plug-and-play hardware platform that is super-easy to use and compatible with Arduino. 6PLUS adds touchscreen and frontlighting, making it a perfect solution for interactive projects.

Powered by ESP32, you will have strong microcontroller with WiFi and Bluetooth on your disposal. Using the Arduino library, it's a 5 minute job to get the board running for you. It's 100% open-source for both software and hardware.
