PaPiRus Zero is an ePaper / eInk screen pHAT designed for the Raspberry Pi Zero. It’s one of the first true low power displays for the Pi Zero mini computer.

ePaper / eInk is a display technology that mimics the appearance of ink on normal paper. Unlike conventional displays, ePaper reflects light – just like ordinary paper – and is capable of holding text and images indefinitely, even without electricity. Because of this, ePaper displays and single board computers or microcontrollers are a match made in heaven as together they use a very small amount of power whilst still bringing a display to your project.

The ePaper display that comes with this PaPiRus Zero is a 2″ diagonal and 128 x 96 resolution ePaper display. One fantastic aspect of the ePaper display is the fact they don’t need any power to keep the image on the screen. Just like a Kindle, you can read whatever is on your screen in daylight without any reflection. More information including wiring diagrams, datasheets & and links to example code are available at rePaper.

Potential uses:

  • An eInk / ePaper name tag
  • Display the latest weather forecast
  • A Pi Zero ePaper watch
  • Display your own Twitter Feed
  • Small dynamic digital signage (such as displaying prices for products in a store)
  • Outdoor displays where you don’t want the screen to be affected by sunlight reflection
  • Any sort of data-logging applications

Works with any 40-pin Raspberry Pi variant.

PLEASE NOTE!! The PaPiRus Zero doesn’t come with a stacking header for use with the Pi Zero! If you still need one though, you can pick one up here.
