This is the E-Ink display module designed for ink display development. This module can work without additional electronic parts you just plug the module directly to your microcontroller. This device has driven by SSD1606 4GS active matrix display driver selectable at 6800 – /8080 series via Parallel Interface or Serial Peripheral Interface. SSD1606 is a CMOS active matrix bitable display driver with controller it has 129 source output and 1180 gat output, 1VCOM, 1VBD for  border that support 128×180 resolution with integrated booster, regulator, and oscillator that runs on 2.4 ~ 3.3v with super wide viewing angle near 180 degree, 172×72 resolution in 4 gray shade color in an extra light and thin. As an example we used a NANO board for testing but you can also use Arduino UNO and some other microcontroller that runs on Arduino IDE. For further product details See below the datasheets.
