App note: Driving of OLEDs

Application note from OSRAM on driving OLEDs with constant current for longer operation. Link here The operation of OLEDs with electronic drivers is similar to anorganic LEDs for the most part. In a majority of applications, standard LED drivers may be used also for OLEDs. Nevertheless, there are some important basic rules and OLED specific […]

ESP8266: SSD1306 OLED library release

Daniel Eichhorn writes: The “ESP8266 OLED SSD1306″ is an open source library which allows you to control those pretty OLED modules from our beloved ESP8266 module. Fabrice Weinberg cleaned up all the ugly pieces of code which I initially wrote caused by my near C/C++ illiteracy. He also added support for Pasko’s BRZO I2C library […]

60+ FPS with OLED and Bus Pirate

An update on previous 1.3”OLED with SSD1306 controlled by Bus Pirate post, Markus writes: By changing the default serial connection speed between the PC and the Bus Pirate from 115200 to 1000000 baud, the frame rate is now increased to 60+ FPS :) Get your own handy Bus Pirate for $30, including world-wide shipping. Also available […]

1.3”OLED with SSD1306 controlled by Bus Pirate

Markus Gritsch writes: I wrote a quick Python script to communicate with an SSD1306 driven OLED connected to a PC with a Bus Pirate. The script uses the Bus Pirates raw SPI mode and manages to update the little screen slightly faster than 10 times per second. Via the project log forum. Check out the […]

DIY digital wristwatch

Zak Kemble wrote a post on his blog detailing his digital wristwatch with a 1.3″ 128×64 OLED display, AVR ATmega328P microcontroller: The main incentive behind this project was to see how much I could cram, in terms of both hardware and software, into a wristwatch-like device that is no larger than the display itself. An OLED […]

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 […]

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. […]
