This 5.79" E-Paper module is a colourful e-ink display with a resolution of 792 x 272 pixels and supports red, black, and white colours. With a viewing angle exceeding 170°, this display provides clear visibility from nearly any direction. It operates without a backlight, maintaining its last displayed content for extended periods even when powered down, making it ideal for power-sensitive projects. This module has ultra-low power consumption, only requiring power during the refresh process. The SPI interface provides easy connectivity with various controller boards, including Raspberry Pi, Jetson Series, Arduino, and STM32, enhancing its versatility for different projects.

Note: Raspberry Pi 5 is NOT included
