PaPiRus Zero is an ePaper / eInk screen HAT designed for the Raspberry Pi Zero and the Raspberry Pi Zero W. It’s one of the first true low power displays for the Pi Zero mini computer. ePaper / eInk is a display technology that mimics the appearance of ink on paper. Unlike conventional displays, ePaper reflects light just like ordinary paper and is capable of holding text and images indefinitely, even without electricity.
All signals are broken out to a 40 pin female header. The ePaper display that comes as standard with this PaPiRus HAT is a 2.0" diagonal and 200 x 96 resolution ePaper display.
The display does not require any power to keep the image and will stay ‘on’ without any power connection for many days before slowly fading. Of course, its also daylight readable and is very high contrast. This makes it excellent for data-logging applications, outdoor displays, or any other ultra-low power usages.
