CircuitPython displayio drivers for SSD1675-based ePaper displays


This driver depends on:

Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.

Installing from PyPI

On supported GNU/Linux systems like the Raspberry Pi, you can install the driver locally from PyPI. To install for current user:

pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-ssd1675

To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):

sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-ssd1675

To install in a virtual environment in your current project:

mkdir project-name && cd project-name
python3 -m venv .venv
source .venv/bin/activate
pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-ssd1675

Usage Example

"""Simple test script for 2.13" 250x122 black and white featherwing.

Supported products:
  * Adafruit 2.13" Black and White FeatherWing

import time
import board
import busio
import displayio
# Starting in CircuitPython 9.x, fourwire will be a seperate internal library
# rather than a component of the displayio library
    from fourwire import FourWire
except ImportError:
    from displayio import FourWire
import adafruit_ssd1675


epd_cs = board.D9
epd_dc = board.D10

display_bus = FourWire(board.SPI(), command=epd_dc, chip_select=epd_cs, baudrate=1000000)

display = adafruit_ssd1675.SSD1675(display_bus, width=250, height=122, rotation=90)

g = displayio.Group()

f = open("/display-ruler.bmp", "rb")

pic = displayio.OnDiskBitmap(f)
# CircuitPython 6 & 7 compatible
t = displayio.TileGrid(
    pic, pixel_shader=getattr(pic, "pixel_shader", displayio.ColorConverter())
# CircuitPython 7 compatible only
# t = displayio.TileGrid(pic, pixel_shader=pic.pixel_shader)

display.root_group = g
