This OLED uses the SSD1351 driver chip, which manages the display. You can talk to the driver chip using 4-wire write-only SPI (clock, data, chip select, data/command and an optional reset pin). Included on the fully assembled breakout is the OLED display and a small boost converter (required for providing 12V to the OLED) and a microSD card holder. This design includes built-in logic level shifting so you can use it with 3-5VDC power and logic levels. Our example code shows how to read a bitmap from the uSD card and display it all via SPI.
Of course, we wouldn’t just leave you with a datasheet and a «good luck!» — we’ve written a full open source graphics library that can draw pixels, lines, rectangles, circles, text and bitmaps as well as example code. The code is written for Arduino but can be easily ported to your favorite microcontroller! We do not have a detailed wiring tutorial at this time, but if you follow the example code wiring it should work just fine.
- 1.27″ diagonal OLED, 16-bit color
- SPI interface
- 3.3-5V logic and power
- PCB Dimensions: 36mm x 43mm/1.4″ x 1.7″ / 2mm thick
- Screen Dimensions: 32mm x 27mm/1.27″ x 1.07″
- Display current draw is completely dependent on your usage: each OLED LED draws current when on so the more pixels you have lit, the more current is used. They tend to draw ~30mA or so in practice but for precise numbers you must measure the current in your usage circuit. This does not include the SD card, which is separate
