ePaper Hacking: How to Get the Fastest Possible Refresh Rate (video) E-ink e-Reading Hardware

Ever wonder just what is involved in refreshing an E-ink screen?

Ben Krasnow has posted a video where he first explains how epaper works and then goes on to modify the firmware of a 4.2" epaper module to get a faster refresh rate.

After giving us the background, Krasnow then walks us through some of the software running on the board that drives the E-ink screen, and shows how he modified it to make it faster by editing a few look-up-tables.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:

“I’ve been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It’s a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog.”
