Ben Krasnow Tackles ‘E-Paper Hacking’ Using ‘Chip on Glass’ Tech for 3Hz Refresh Rate
In this episode of Applied Science, Ben Krasnow examines a 4.2″ 400×300 e-ink display from Wavetech, explaining how the e-paper display works, as well as showing the ‘chip on glass‘ tech powering this specific module, and getting the display to refresh at 3Hz for pretty smooth animations, on e-paper!

How to modify E-paper display firmware to get 3Hz update rate.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
