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 […]
A how-to on building an ESP8266 based plane spotter from Daniel Eichorn: In order to get this project running you’ll need the following list of hardware: NodeMCU ESP8266 module or Wemos D1 Mini 0.96″ SSD1306 OLED display A few connectors and USB Wire Or order a complete starter kit from my shop Full details at Squix TechBlog.
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 […]
Dan blogged about his Servo tester with OLED display project: The problem is simple: I need to have a reliable and easy to use servo tester, that I can use to test/play with a standard RC servo or ESC or anything else that uses the same control protocol. This necessity has arisen again quite recently, while […]
Lembke writes: I like the ATtiny85. It is small, comes in a solder friendly DIP 8 case, has 8k Flash + 512 Bytes Ram, 5 to 6 IO pins at 8 MHz with no external parts. But developement is a pain: no serial (ok, it is possible but needs ports) and debugWire is even more […]
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 […]
Here’s Oscar Liang another Arduino GPS project, he writes: Garlow stands for GPS Arduino Rechargeable Logger OLED Watch. The device gives GPS information which is logged on SD card and shown on a OLED display. It can be carried as a watch or simply used as a GPS data logger. The whole system is based on Arduino […]
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 […]
Rupert Hirst writes, “I decided it was time to build my own version with the features that should have been in the official hardware”: LCD Smartie is open-source (cough!) software which allows a character LCD display to be used as an auxiliary display device for a PC. The program has built in support for many […]
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 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 […]
Jeremy built a tiny GPS receiver into a “Altoids” case. This unit is explained in the video above, but is basically a GPS receiver, 1 CR1220 battery for the RTC on the GPS breakout, one of my Square Inch of Goodness boards, one 128×32 OLED display, three 6mm buttons, and a 400mAh Li-Po Battery (from […]
The backwoods logger mini from Big mess o’wires is a thermometer and altimeter for logging your cross country hikes. It is an updated version of the backwoods logger classic. A production test run of pre-assembled units is available for sale. All the PCB files, as well as the source code are available. It measures temperature […]
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 […]
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. […]
Jeri Ellsworth, developer of the FPGA-based Commodore C64 emulator game console, discusses the science behind OLEDs and demonstrates how to construct rudimentary examples at home. Via Adafruit.
The Teeny AVR Media Thing is a 96×64 OLED display with a click screen interface. It plays video and renders 3D graphics from an AVR32 ATMEGA32 8bit microcontroller.
