Markus Gritsch writes: Inspired by this and this wrist watch, I decided to build yet another iteration of my bedside table alarm clock, this time using an OLED. As a first step I made a handy breakout board for an 1.3″ … Read more
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.
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 … Read more
Baoshi has designed and built this OLED test jig using pogo pins: I made an inquiry on Dangerous Prototypes forum asking for an ideas about how to make a test jig for the panel. Less than a hour later I … Read more
William Garrido writes, “I released the USB Tester OLED Backpack today and thought it would be good for you guys to post up. It is an add on for the USB Tester for measuring voltage and current. With the OLED … Read more
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. … Read more
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 … Read more
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 … Read more
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 … Read more
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 … Read more
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.
