Evaluation Kits for the 4.0″ Display

The 4.0” Lectum display is part of the Epson platform. The display on-board electronics contains the gate driver supporting up to 800 lines, and the Epson S1D13541 EPD controller with integrated 480 lines source driver.

Therefore, the evaluation kits have to provide the the power management, and the system MCU.

The 4.0″ display can be operated by two main different evaluation kit systems:

  • MSP 430-based
  • Beaglebone-based

MSP430 – KIT

The MSP430-Kit comes as complete kit and runs out of the box using different components. It consists of a TI MSP430 microcontroller on a Parrot board and a Hummingbird Z6 board.
