This 2.9" ePaper display for the Raspberry Pi Pico includes capacitive 5-point touch, allowing you to interact with your low-power display projects without the need for peripherals or buttons!
The paper-like display is classic black/white and features a screen resolution of 296x128 pixels on the 2.9" panel. It includes an onboard header to connect directly to a Raspberry Pi Pico (male headers required) and utilizes the I2C bus for Touch and SPI bus for the display.
ePaper / eInk displays are designed to replicate the appearance of ink on paper. Unlike regular displays, which lose their image when power is removed, eInk screens are able to hold text and images indefinitely, even without power. ePaper screens are therefore ultra low power, designed to have a wide viewing angle, and additionally have limited reflection under sunlight. The applications are limitless!
