Gnat-Stats, Tiny OLED PC performance monitor

Rupert Hirst writes: After a recent purchase of a Nvidia GTX1080 graphics card, 4k monitor plus Doom(2016), I thought it would be great to see some external telemetry… from my exorbitant purchase. Then, I Stumbled upon on Psyrax’s “Serialmonitor” GitHub repository! Armed with an Arduino ProMicro plus a 128×64 pixel OLED display, I compiled the source […]

SSD1306 and Python with the BeagleBone Black

Ethan Zonca of Protofusion writes: The SSD1306 is an OLED display made with SPI and I2C interfaces. With a simple Python library I adapted (a modified version of py-gaugette), it is easy to render text, images (from bitmaps of pretty much any format), progress bars, etc. This guide is a bit on the long side, […]

FriedCircuits inline voltage/current tester board

Edouard gives us a preview of the new version of the in-line voltage/current tester board by FriedCircuits. He reports that the board is also compatible with the OLED Backpack (requires separate USB power source.) Via the contact form.

USB Tester OLED backpack update

William at MobileWill posted an update on his USB Tester OLED backpack we covered previously: There is a new firmware update for the USB Tester OLED Backpack. This update completely redesigns the display and makes use of the button. You can find the update on github.  If you need directions on how to update: www.friedcircuits

Mini I2C OLED Display with just 4 connections

Joshua Jach has developed and released his mini I2C OLED display. The project, which has been fully funded via KickStarter, provides a simple way to interface MCUs 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. […]

Library for OLED displays using SSD1306 chipset

Library for OLED displays based on the SSD1306 chipset. It was developed for the PIC32 and PIC24 microcontrollers used on the ORbit16 development boards, but it should be easy to port any PIC24/32 project. I’ve uploaded a new library and a new demo for using the OLED display on ORbit16™. The kind of display used […]

SSD1308 OLED interface AVR library for Arduino/Teensy

Our forum regular Marcus posted a SSD1308 OLED interface library and pin connections to get you started with your Arduino/Teensy OLED projects. The display is a 0.96” 128 x 64 dot matrix that can be interfaced though both I2C or SPI interfaces, the library Marcus provides is SPI only and should allow you to get […]

Accelerometer controlled OLED 3D cube

Markus used an MMA7455L 3-axis accelerometer to detect the direction of the gravity in this cool demo: I am using the MMA7455L breakout board to control a 3D cube displayed on a (SPI-modified Seeedstudio) OLED display. My MMA7455L library is available in the forum. Get the MMA7455L breakout board for $15 at Seeed Studio. Back […]

DEMO: 96×16 OLED display

It has been a while since a demonstration was posted. We whipping up new projects for you like the USB LCD backpack, HVP adapter, Buspirate v4 prototype, breakout boards, and several other project that are TOP-SECRET but will be released soon! Now that everything is at to manufacturing, we have some time off for our family and for fun stuff. […]
