NEW PRODUCT – Blue Character OLED 16×2

Window-180
NEW PRODUCT – Blue Character OLED 16×2. When you need low power, ultra-high contrast and any-angle readability, you can’t beat these great looking character OLEDs. They are pin/shape/code compatible with ‘standard’ HD44780 LCDs so you can just swap ’em in! Best of all, no backlight or contrast control is required, so they’re even simpler to get running.

  • 16 characters wide, 2 rows
  • Bright blue OLED text on black background
  • Connection port is 0.1″ pitch, single row for easy breadboarding and wiring
  • Pins are documented on the back of the LCD to assist in wiring it up
  • No backlight! Each pixel is an individual LED
  • Can be fully controlled with only 6 digital lines! (Any analog/digital pins can be used)
  • Built in default character set supports English/Japanese text. Can also be set to use Western European and Russian, see the WS0010 datasheet for the full character sets
  • Up to 8 extra characters can be created for custom glyphs or ‘foreign’ language support
  • Comes with a strip of header
  • Works with 3V or 5V power & logic

As an added bonus, the controller allows you to use it as a 100×16 graphic display as well – check the WS0010 datasheet for details. We don’t have a tutorial for this mode.

By default, the module is set up to be 4 or 8-bit HD44780 compatible. If you’re handy with a soldering iron, you can apparently place it in ‘SPI’ mode, by changing some of the jumpers on the back of the PCB. We don’t have a tutorial for using this mode, check the datasheets for details.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
