NEW PRODUCTS THIS WEEK
AdaBox011 – PyPortal: Reach out beyond your desk – to the stars and beyond – with PyPortal! This ADABOX features a new, easy-to-use IoT device that allows you to customize and create your very own “Internet of Things” portal. We take CircuitPython to the max, pairing a SAMD51 chip with a 3.2″ color TFT touchscreen and secure Wi-Fi co-processor.
With the open-source Python-powered PyPortal, you can fetch and display anything in the world: inspirational quotes, weather forecasts, your social media followers, cat photos, and more – over Wi-Fi with the latest technologies. Create little pocket universes of joy that connect to something good. You can even rotate it 90 degrees, now it’s a web-connected conference badge – and take #badgelife to the next level! See more!
Adafruit 2.13″ Monochrome eInk / ePaper Display FeatherWing – 250×122 Black and White: Easy e-paper finally comes to your Feather, with this breakout that’s designed to make it a breeze to add a monochrome eInk display. Chances are you’ve seen one of those new-fangled ‘e-readers’ like the Kindle or Nook. They have gigantic electronic paper ‘static’ displays – that means the image stays on the display even when power is completely disconnected. The image is also high contrast and very daylight readable. It really does look just like printed paper! See more!
Adafruit 1.54″ Monochrome eInk / ePaper Display with SRAM – 200×200 Monochrome: It’s higher resolution than our 1.54″ Tri-Color display with 152×152 black pixels on a white-ish background. The monochrome displays also take a lot less time to update, only a couple seconds instead of 15 seconds!
Using our CircuitPython or Arduino libraries, you can create a ‘frame buffer’ with what pixels you want to have activated and then write that out to the display. Most simple breakouts leave it at that. But if you do the math, 200 x 200 pixels = 8 KBytes. Which won’t fit into many microcontroller memories. Heck, even if you do have 32KB of RAM, why waste 8KB?
