E-ink Display Driven DIY

E-ink displays are awesome. Humans spent centuries reading non-backlit devices, and frankly it’s a lot easier on the eyes. But have you looked into driving one of these critters yourself? It’s a nightmare. So chapeau! to [Julien] for his FPGA-based implementation that not only uses our favorite open-source FPGA toolchain, and serves as an open reference implementation for anyone else who’s interested.

Watch the E-Ink controller in action:

Design files and source code are available on GitHub:

github-smalljulbouln/ice40_eink_controller

julbouln has shared the board on OSH Park:
