E-paper Adaptag Development Kit

Texas Instruments and Pervasive Displays have joined forces to bring you the easiest way to start your own wireless e-Paper network!

AdaptTagAdapTag development kit provides a simple, working reference design for hardware and software development on sub 1 GHz at 433MHz applications, based on the Texas Instruments CC430 RF MCU with ultra-low power active matrix electronic paper displays (EPD’s) from Pervasive Displays Inc (PDi).

The AdapTag board with PDi’s EPD is able to operate as host or slave, and contains Advanced Low Power Star (ALPS) protocol stack, programmable firmware code and open source software that can be tailored towards many different EPD applications.

  • Starter kit to quick design RF product with active matrix e-Paper display (EPD)
  • Reduced development time and shortened time to market
  • Complete low power protocol reduces the RF communication design cycle
  • Open reference circuits, tool source code and design documents
  • Ultra low power consumption through configurable output power, flexible frame cycle and time slot of protocol
  • Electronic shelf label
  • Reusable transit item
  • Pick-to-light
