The OLED Display is a simple cost effective solution for interfacing to a small Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) Display.

The OLED  Module  is a simple cost effective solution for interfacing to a small Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) Display based on the SSD1306 driver.  The OLED Module is controlled via I2C Fast-mode, with a bit rate up to 400kbit/s.  Only 4 wires are needed – 5V, GND, SDA, SCL.

Open source code will be available for:

  • Arduino
  • Atmel 8-bit MicroControllers
  • LPCExpresso ARM0
  • Light Blue
  • 96 x 16 Resolution
  • Small size 30 x 15 x 4 mm
  • 256 step contrast/brightness control
  • Fast-mode I2C
  • Chip select function allows multiple displays to be run off the same I2C lines
  • Embedded horizontal and vertical scrolling functions
  • Low operating current

When I first got into working with Micro-controllers one of the first things I had a problem with, was the lack of display output.  Whether you need to display text, a menu, animations or even debug messages a simple command like System.out.println becomes much more complicated in the embedded world.  Of course you can easily add LEDs or indicator lights to represent your output, but I typically wished for something more "capable".  After playing with the Nokia screen for awhile I realized that most of my projects dont need such a large screen and that a smaller screen helps makes projects portable.  So I've set out to develop a small easy to use OLED display.

 My goal is to assist developers in implementing a display module into their project. Rather than going through the process of designing and creating a breakout board that manages the power levels and communication signal voltages. I'm am offering an OLED module that handles the voltage levels and communication lines so that even a beginner electronics hobbyist can easily get started with the OLED display.

In addition to this, there is also a significant amount of development that goes into software in order to control this display. So I will be providing open source code for Atmel and LPC microcontrollers to allow quick interface to my OLED module.
