Warning — work in progress: This is a quick&dirty post about the first steps to connect the E-Paper Shield Kit from Crowd Supply and run the example code. Consider it as a first draft — I am going to modify this post in the next few days and add images.
Recieved my E-paper Shield Kit I preordered via Crowd Supply.
The components of the kit are a Teensy LC (green), an adapter board (red) and an E-Paper display.
If you have never worked with a Teensy before, head to https://www.pjrc.com/teensy/first_use.html and follow the instructions — especially install Teensyduino!
Once you are ready to work with your Teensy head to the GitHub-Repo of the E-Paper Shield Kit and install the “EPD215” and the “Adafruit_GFX” libraries.
Mount your Teensy LC on the adapter board and connect the E-Paper display.
Connect the Teensy with a USB-cable to your host computer. Start your Arduino IDE, open one of the E-paper Shield examples, click “Verify/Compile” in the “Sketch” Menu, once compiled press the button on the Teensy. If Teensy Loader shows “OK reboot”, your example was succesfully loaded and will write to your E-Paper screen!
