M5Paper v1.1 is M5Stacks latest core device with a touch enabled E-ink display. Powered by the ESP32-D0WDQ6-V3 this is our first device to integrate a super sized 540*960 @4.7" E-ink display,which supports 16 gray scale levels. The display is a GT911 capacitive touch screen,which supports two point touch and a variety of gesture controls . Compared to a regular LCD,E-ink displays are easier on the eyes, which makes them a great choice for reading or viewing for longer periods. Other benefits are the low power consumption and the ability to retain the image even if power to the display is terminated. Integrated in the CoreInk are an multi-function button for operation, SHT30 temperature and moisture sensor, physical buttons and an TF-card(microSD) port for data storage.

Additionally the FM24C02 internal eeprom chip provided 2K-bit(256x8)-EEPROM can be used to store vital data even when the device is off. A 1150mAh lithium polymer battery keeps the device going for long periods and battery life can be further preserved by using the RTC(BM8563)to set the device into deep sleep and wake it up again when needed。Three HY2.0-4P expansion ports are included which allow for building complex projects using the existing sensors in the M5Stack ecosystem.

M5Paper v1.1 adopts flexible e-Ink screen panel, which is the same model as that of M5Paper v1.0 hard e-Ink screen panel. All features and specs are the same for both models. We are using CP2104 and CH9102 as the USB serial chip in alternative. Please install the relevant USB driver according to your device.

Warning: 1. Do not expose to ultraviolet rays for a long time, otherwise it may cause irreversible damage to the ink screen.
2. The low-power power management solution adopted by M5Paper is different from CORE and StickC devices. When using it, the PWR button is used as the power-on button (long press for 2s). If you need to shut down the device, you need to use the software API or It is realized by pressing the reset button on the back. When using USB power supply, it cannot be shut down.
3. During use, if the program cannot be downloaded normally (the prompt is overtime or Failed to write to target RAM), you can try to reinstall the device driver. For driver download, please see the content at the bottom of the document.

    Excellent quality

    Received my unit very fast, and I am very happy with the quality of this product. This has been my best IoT hobby purchase in several years.

    So Cool!!!!

    These are like the ultimate prototyping toys of all time. I can't wait to get something awesome built.

    I'm gonna collect them all.

    Programming error

    I have so far not been able to program the m5paper on my Mac. The driver gives me an write error. Failed to write to ram 01070000

    Stopped working after 30 minutes

    While playing with the pre-installed tests, the display got "stuck" on a garbled image, vaguely representing images of the installed tests. I have been unable to reset or otherwise revive the system. Documentation really very poor. Total waste of time and money.

    M5 paper

    The product is great , i like so much , the only think I can say is for beginners like me , we needs more examples for touch , for example how to create a single button , maybe a small led show when is turn on could be good idea to. In general is a good device and I will buy again to M5 stack ( if you can send by FedEx IP is much better than DHL in Mexico )
    Thank you so much M5stack
