Thanks to Lucky Resistor for sending this in! Check out more here.
I created an alternative to the Adafruit driver for the really cool Sharp memory display from your shop.
This alternative uses a fixed 8×8 pixel charset which reduces the memory usage a great way and make the display usable even in projects which have a high memory usage.
The driver only refreshes changed rows which makes the refresh faster (less power) and make it suitable to use in a timer interrupt. The driver itself does not use timer.
The software comes as Arduino library with a simple example and a driver demo, and there is the complete documentation on the website.
The driver is licensed under the GNU public license version 2.0.
Featured Adafruit Product!
SHARP Memory Display Breakout – 1.3″ 96×96 Silver Monochrome: The 1.3″ SHARP Memory LCD display is a cross between an eInk (e-paper) display and an LCD. It has the ultra-low power usage of eInk and the fast-refresh rates of an LCD. This model has a matt silver background, and pixels show up as little mirrors for a silver-reflective display, a really beautiful and unique look. It does not have a backlight, but it is daylight readable. For dark/night reading you may need to illuminate the LCD area with external LEDs. Read more.
