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!
