These displays are small, only about 1.3" diagonal, but very readable due to the high contrast of an OLED display. This display is made of 128x64 individual white OLED pixels, each one is turned on or off by the controller chip. Because the display makes its own light, no backlight is required. This reduces the power required to run the OLED and is why the display has such high contrast; we really like this miniature display for its crispness!

The driver chip, SSD1306 can communicate in two ways: I2C or SPI. The OLED itself require a 3.3V power supply and 3.3V logic levels for communication, but we include a 3.3V regulator and all pins are fully level shifted so you can use with 5V devices!

The power requirements depend a little on how much of the display is lit but on average the display uses about 40mA from the 3.3V supply. Built into the OLED driver is a simple switch-cap charge pump that turns 3.3v-5v into a high voltage drive for the OLEDs.

We have a detailed tutorial and example code in the form of an Arduino library for text and graphics. You'll need a microcontroller with more than 1K of RAM since the display must be buffered. The library can print text, bitmaps, pixels, rectangles, circles and lines. It uses 1K of RAM since it needs to buffer the entire display but its very fast! The code is simple to adapt to any other microcontroller.

Sharp, crisp text, bright and easy to read
Wednesday, 26 October 2016  |  Oliver

I got the 1.3" sized screen and this seems about right as I wouldn't want to go any smaller. I'm impressed at just how bright the screen is and that it can be viewed from any angle. I would use it in SPI mode as it's a lot faster but being able to use I2C is handy as it uses less pins. There's not a lot more to say but it adds a really nice touch to your project so I'd recommend it any day.

One of the brightest screens I've used

I recently bought the 0.96" version of this screen and was very impressed with it. This is equally as good, with the added bonus of being bigger than I expected.Super bright, crisp and very quick in SPI mode. A simple soldered jumper on the back of the b

This little OLED is awesome for my project. Its nice and bright and has great options for connectivity. (SPI and I2C). It has a fantastic resolution for its size. Would definitely recommend if you want to add a display to your project.
