IL0389 ePaper Driver

Post by T-Wilko » Wed May 13, 2020 3:58 pm

Hi everyone,

On a bit of a roll recently with ePaper IC's so I've started writing up my own for ones that lack pre-existing micropython code.
Recently obtained a 4.2inch ePaper display directly from the friendly folk at GooDisplay: ... d=321.html

annnd here's the driver for it, tested and working with full refresh.

Haven't implemented partial refresh yet but I *think* the screen is capable of it (docs are pretty dodgy) so I'll be getting round to it soon. Also working on a better method of using user-made SPI objects, as well as grayscale.
Any tips, advice or pr's would be greatly appreciated as this is one of my first driver attempts.
