Ultra-low-power Display, Sensors, and Arduino Uno Compatibility

The E-ink Display Shield Board (CY8CKIT-028-EPD) has been designed such that an ultra-low-power E-ink display, sensors and a microphone can interface with Cypress' PSoC 4 and PSoC 6 MCUs.

It comes with the features below to enable everyday objects to connect to the Internet of Things (IoT).

  • Ultra-low-power 2.7 inch E-ink Display
  • Motion Sensor
  • Temperature Sensor
  • PDM Microphone

The E-ink Display Shield Board uses the Arduino Uno pin layout, enabling this shield board to be used with Cypress' PSoC 4 and PSoC 6 MCU based Pioneer Kits.



The table below shows the pin mapping for the PSoC 4 and PSoC 6 MCU Pioneer Kits that the E-ink Display Shield is compatible with:
