This 128×64 Pixel OLED display shows white pixels on a dark blue background. It cooperates through its I2C bus capabilities perfectly with any microcontroller platform like for example Arduino or ST32. Please watch the YouTube video (link below for the smaller 0.96″ version) to see how it works.
Thanks to its operation and logic level voltage of 3-5V this Display hook up to any Arduino board without voltage compatibility issues.
These displays can come with SSD1306 or SH1106 controller; make sure you chose the right controller type in your code. Most libraries for SSD1306 also support SH1106, a quick search on GitHub will deliver plenty of information. It is not to see on the module which controller chip is actually assembled.
- Shows characters and graphics.
- Arduino library is available.
- 128 x 64 pixel, white/blue
- PCB size:34 x36 mm
- Screen size: ca. 30 x 16 mm (1.3 Inches)
- Power consumption: <40mW
- Data interface: I2C serial
- I2C address: fixed
Note 1: The display module does not come with termination resistors for the I2C bus. The provided library uses the pull-up resistors within the Atmel microcontroller. If you are using a different way to drive the display, make sure you install pull-up resistors for the I2C bus.
Note 2: We don’t know the reason why, but most people try to use a library from Adafruit. But this mysterious library obviously is limited to the SSD1306 controller only. If your display comes with the SH1106 controller, you only get some fresh pixel salad served. Please find here a better library, supporting different controller models and definitely working with both controller types:
