MSP430FR4133: MSP430 + E-ink / E-paper reference design

Part Number: MSP430FR4133
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: MSP430FR2633, MSP-EXP430G2

Hi all,

Is there any SW & HW available in order to accelerate any SW development for a E-ink display driven by a MSP430 ?

Is there any E-ink display user's interface / HAL SW drivers available in MSP SDK ?

Is there any E-ink display boosterpack available ?

Thank you! 

Best regards,

Guillaume

  • Hi Henri,

    In terms of official TI related information, I don't recall ever seeing publish.  A quick search confirms this, but  I did find this 2014 post on E2E.  Not sure it helps any.

    https://e2e.ti.com/blogs_/b/process/posts/eink-displays-made-easy-with-msp430-fram-microcontrollers

    Internally, I did work with a customer last year where they were using MSP430FR2633 to drive an ITO touch panel over and e-ink display, but they were using a CC2640R2FRGZT to drive the display.

    I don't know enough about the e-ink display interface to comment on how easy/difficult it is to develop a driver.

    Sorry.

  • Hi Dennis,

    Thanks for your reply and help here. I could finally find other information (TI official or not) through the following elements :

    ** Interfacing ePaper BoosterPack with MSP-EXP430G2 LaunchPad

                   https://youtu.be/d2Kj2NwmzB0

                   http://e2e.ti.com/cfs-file.ashx/__key/communityserver-components-userfiles/00-00-01-39-39-Attached+Files/7522.epaper_5F00_boosterpack.zip

     

    This tutorial shows how to interface the ePaper BoosterPack from Pervasive Displays with the MSP-EXP430G2 LaunchPad.

    This BoosterPack is bundled with either a 1.44", 2" and 2.7" ePaper display and is available @ www.pervasivedisplays.com/.../ext_kit

    This example uses Code Composer Studio to program the MSP-EXP430G2 LaunchPad. Once programmed, we can communicate and control the LaunchPad to display various images, shapes, text, etc on the ePaper display through serial UART commands with the help of a Graphical User Interface (GUI).

    PROJECT FEATURES:

    • Easy and low-cost way to demonstrate eInk applications
    • Ultra-Low Power. e-Ink only needs power during state/content display of the screen. Once screen is loaded with the appropriate content, power can be removed and the screen contents remain!
    • This is ideal for electronic shelf labelling & other applications where screen content does not have to change frequently.

     

    RESOURCES:

    Here is a zip file that includes the CCS project example, installer for the EPD GUI tool as well as some sample images. A power point is also packaged with some instructions.

    Kind regards,

    Guillaume
