A powerful modular system for developers who want to be able to mix and match microcontroller/SBC host boards and different ePaper or E Ink® displays.
Developed in conjunction with our friends at Ineltek, Inky Developer allows developers plenty of flexibility to demonstrate concepts and showcase various types of ePaper displays. It consists of two parts - a host board which connects by cable to a display board. There's just one kind of host and display available right now, but there are more in the pipeline!
Inky Developer includes some extra functionality that you won't find on our standard Inky range. As well as providing a sturdy base for the ePaper panel, the display board has four buttons for inputs, four RGB LEDs for visual feedback and it supports a low power sleep mode. All these functions are connected up via an I2C I/O expander so they use up a minimum of pins on your host microcontroller or SBC. We've also broken out headers for as many pins as possible on both boards, so there's plenty of options for connecting up extra hardware.

Host boards and displays are sold separately so make sure you pick up one of each! Each host board comes with a JST-SH cable.
