When talking about Display Modules and various kinds of display units in our modern world, we often think of the displays on mobile devices or those utilised for televisions and computers. However, sometimes we don’t need such a power-intensive display, and for some applications it would be handy to use as little power as possible, while still getting a decent level of information and visual clarity. This is precisely where the awesome features of e-Ink Displays outshine all alternatives, as these display modules are designed specifically for low-power, utilising tiny pockets of ink that rise and fall when power is applied, so that whatever is on the display stays there even when the power is disconnected.

These cool e-Ink display features are what make this 1.54 inch NFC-Powered e-Ink Display an awesome little module to play around with and utilise for a range of different projects. It features no internal battery or direct cable connection, but is instead powered and updated directly from a smart device, updating the display as it’s powered and then keeping that image displayed for as long as you want, until you decide to update it again. This is really useful for applications like name tags or custom “moddable” keyrings, or could even be used to keep your favourite QR code handy to share with friends, uploading a new image each day, never having to recharge any batteries, and never even having to plug it in.

In terms of aesthetics, module itself it quite a neat little package with a durable metal bezel that runs around the edges and a tiny keyring hole positioned in the corner. This, while being quaint and pleasant compared to bare boards and wiring, also helps to focus all attention towards the actual display in the centre, with the white frame complementing almost any kinds of photos, cartoons, QR codes or other imagery you want to put there. This means that you can use this e-Paper module as a custom updatable keyring, a QR Code “Business Card” for easy networking, a quick method of fetching weather data and other information, or simply as a novelty item to start some conversations with friends or strangers.

When it comes to producing unique electronics components and modules, there are very few brands that can provide the quality that Waveshare can. Based in the Futian District in Shenzhen, China, Waveshare are experts in developing electronics to a high standard of quality, which have been thoroughly tested to work seamlessly with corresponding development platforms and systems – such as the E-Ink HATs for Raspberry Pi’s.

What we love most about Waveshare is how they are dedicated to providing quality products, and have moved away from the typical “Made in China” stigma – cheap products with cheap parts and components. Instead, Waveshare understand the value of supplying quality products and building sustainable relationships with international resellers and distributors. They know that consistent quality will result in consistent business, and as such they always ensure strict quality control for each and every product that comes out of the manufacturing plant.

We are always excited to peruse through their vast catalogue of exciting new products to find unique modules, components or even entire development boards that are designed with quality in mind. Because we know that every cent that we spend with Waveshare will be well-spent, with each product that order adding real value to our own catalogue of products.
