UPDATED GUIDE: Adafruit Sharp Memory Display Breakout @CircuitPython #Adafruit #AdafruitLearningSystem #Display @Raspberry_Pi @Adafruit @MakerMelissa

The Adafruit Sharp Memory Display Breakout guide has been updated to include setup instructions for usage through User Python code on the Raspberry Pi using Blinka as well as use with CircuitPython.

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.

The display is 3V powered and 3V logic, so we placed it on a fully assembled & tested breakout board with a 3V regulator and level shifting circuitry. The display slots into a ZIF socket on board and we use a piece of double-sided tape to adhere it onto one side. There are four mounting holes so you can easily attach it to a box.

The display is ‘write only’ which means that it only needs 3 pins to send data. The downside of a write-only display is that the entire memory must be buffered by the microcontroller driver.
