Issue 20 HackSpace magazine: 10/10 for the @Adafruit OLED Bonnet for @Raspberry_Pi #Adafruit #OLED #RaspberryPi @HackSpaceMag

Only the Best Column

Issue 20 — HackSpace magazine gives the Adafruit OLED Breakout Board – 16-bit color 1.27″ a 10/10 score, saying it has “Great contrast and bright colours make this a great OLED display.”

… the “Adafruit OLED Breakout Board…. features a 1.27” diagonal OLED display, with a grid of 128×96 RGB pixels. The pixels have a 16-bit resolution, allowing for a theoretical tonal range of 65,536 unique colours. And, since it’s an OLED and does not require a backlight, the blacks are really black, and the contrast is very high.

Despite its small size, you get a lot of clarity and functionality. And, there is a nice surprise when you flip the
board over. A built-in microSD card holder. This allows you to access an image from a microSD card, and display it via an SPI interface. Simple!
