EV-GEAR-EINK1Z is a “Gear” (expansion add-on board) for MCU Cogs (EV-COG-AD3029LZ & EV-COG-AD4050LZ). The Gear is used to enable interfacing with EINK Electronic Paper Display (EPD). This gear can be used for quick prototyping and deployment of COG+EPD solutions.
The EV-GEAR-EINK1Z supports these displays
The EV-GEAR-EINK1Z can be powered only if connected to a MCU-COG. Connect the gear to the MCU-Cog as shown in the picture
COG Connectors C1 and C2 are used to interface EV-GEAR-EINK1Z with MCU COG. C1 and C2 connectors carry all the pins necessary to interface EPD with MCU COG. The pinout details of C1 and C2 can be found in EV-COG-AD3029LZ MCU Cog
Place the COG on the EINK-Gear such that COG connectors (C1 and C2) on COG and EINK-Gear connect to each other.
There are 3 options to power the COG+EPD setup. The option can be selected using the power-switch on MCU-Cog. <Image>
