An extra large 7.3" (800 x 480 pixel) 7 colour E Ink® display for Raspberry Pi.
There's a new ePaper screen in town, and it's a whopper! Like the ones on our other Inky Impressions, this XL 7.3" display is super crisp, low power and looks great from a variety of viewing angles. These seven colour screens are our absolute favourites, with high pixel density and bright vivid colours, perfect for showing off gorgeous dithered images (Pimoroni has put a lot of effort into our dithering code and we hope you love it).
Pimoroni has enhanced this fancy display by adding:
Electronic paper displays only consume power whilst they're refreshing, so they're a good choice for projects like home automation dashboards and electronic photo frames that need to be always on. This one takes around 40 seconds to refresh, so is best suited to projects that don't require constant screen updates.Features
Multi-colour EPD displays use electrophoresis to pull coloured particles up and down on the display. The coloured particles reflect light, unlike most display types, meaning that they're visible under bright lights.
Everything comes fully-assembled and there's no soldering required (as long as your Raspberry Pi has a 40 pin header attached). The display is securely stuck down to the Inky Impression PCB and connected via a ribbon cable. Just pop Inky Impression on your Pi and run our installer to get everything set up!
Pimoroni has also broken out the I2C pins on the back of Inky Impression, letting you connect additional devices like breakouts and show their data right on the display.
Inky Impression will work with any version of the Pi that has a 40 pin header, including Zero variants. If you want to use it with a Raspberry Pi 400, you'll probably also want to pick up a GPIO extender cable (unless you're into using screens at a highly unusual angle).Software
Our Python library takes the stress out of displaying text and images on Inky Impression, and Pimoroni has put together some special examples to show off Inky Impression's capabilities. Pimoroni has provided a one-line-installer for the Python library too, to make installation a little more straightforward:
