Looking for a medium-sized eInk / ePaper display for your Raspberry Pi Pico? Look no further than this 5.83" Black/White eInk/ePaper display from Waveshare. It's ideal for adding a low-power E-Ink display to your next Pi Pico project. Featuring a screen resolution of 648x480 pixels, the E-Ink display utilizes a short ribbon cable and driverboard to move the Raspberry Pi Pico off of the back, allowing for a more lowprofile footprint.
ePaper / eInk displays are designed to replicate the appearance of ink on paper. Unlike regular displays, which loose 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!
