The fastest greyscale e-paper
with Wi-Fi connection and Low-power mode.
6-inch 800x600 display
with greyscale support
Support for greyscale, partial updates, and accelerated refresh cycles with a fancy refresh time of only 0.264 s.
A form factor that's optimized for the design of custom enclosures.
with Wi-Fi and BLE
An on-board ESP32 WROVER with integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0, a dual-core microprocessor, 8MB of RAM and 4MB of flash.
Additional GPIO pins, easyC/Qwiic compatibility, and support for I²C and SPI.
battery- or USB-
Extremely low-powered powered operation (including a 25 µA sleep state) that wrings days, weeks, or months out of a single charge.
On-board battery charger with LED battery indicator.
A MicroSD card reader from which Inkplate 6 can pull images to display. Three capacitive touch pads. USB, I²C, SPI and GPIO connectors. USB to UART convertor. Internal temperature sensor. Hardware power switch and reset button.
Arduino & MicroPython
Arduino libraries (100% compatible with Adafruit GFX) and a MicroPython module that facilitate the rendering of text, images, and line art.
Check documentation to get started.
Inkplate 6 is open hardware, and the software that powers it is open source. You can find both our design files and our source code on GitHub.
We invite you to contribute to the libraries, tools, and frameworks that will help Inkplate 6 (and subsequent models!)

Here're some of the Inkplate reviews from the zins we all like to read
Successfully funded on the Crowdsupply platform in 2020.
"Developers, makers and electronic enthusiasts patiently waiting for the arrival of the Inkplate 6 ESP32-powered e-paper display will be pleased to know that it is now available"
"Wer Amazon kritisch sieht, aber Interesse an der E-Paper-Technologie des Kindle hat, der kann sich über das Inkplate freuen..."
"Folks have been hacking Amazon Kindle devices for years... The Inkplate 6 project goes a few steps further by recycling the E Ink screens from old Kindles and transforming them into versatile, programmable displays with WiFi and Bluetooth support."
"The 6″ e-Paper display can easily be updated over WiFi, and used for a variety of applications or projects such as high-latency digital signage displays, collaborative task trackers, e-Paper typewriters, open-hardware E-readers, art projects and so on."
"We got this screen from Crowd Supply...and we can't put it down. It's a fantastic platform for learning to code graphics, using the Adafruit GFX library and beyond!
