Good looking display

Postby KanyeKanye » Mon Nov 04, 2019 11:58 am

I am looking for any good looking display solution.
Popular lcd tft displays, that i could connect via FT80x, have terrible contrast and looking angles.
Monochrome oled displays (like WEO012864K) looks good but are relatively small and mostly described as end of production.
Displays from cellphones looks awesome but use mipi dsi protocol which is unusable for esp32.

Could you suggest some good looking display (exact name) usable for esp32 with active area width about 80-100mm.

We have used many different LCD's from this company for over 5 years now. Great service & LCD's.

That's a problem for everybody now :mrgreen: . Finding bigger graphical monochrome displays is really hard now, unless you go for expensive eInk.

These days, you can sometimes buy low end smartphone grade LCDs cheaper than monochrome one that are MCU driveable. This is why I think we need new display I/O option on MCUs these days like MIPI.

I must say that Eink is not that expensive, provided the benefits it gives:
  • Very low energy consumption
  • Are able to refresh up to 1000000 times (at least)
  • Stores the last print, which is ideal to cope with a low consumption ESP32 using deepsleep ( 0.08 mA / hr )
In this page I made a comprehensive list of all the Eink displays that can be driven with the classname of gxEPD library for Arduino Framework.
I have one question though: Is there any special class to be used on ESP-IDF or can we also use gxEPD?

After searching I found this one: https://github.com/loboris/ESP32_ePaper_example But I would like to use one that supports a wide range of displays like gxEPD.
