If you’re looking for a bright, readable OLED display for a Raspberry Pi (most likely a Pi Zero) project, this might be just the thing you need!
TheAdafruit 2.23″ Monochrome OLED Bonnet for Raspberry Pi is your chonky OLED pal, ready to snap onto any and all Raspberry Pi computers, to give you a vivid display. The Bonnet comes with a 2.13″ diagonal monochrome 128×32 OLED, with sharp white pixels. The OLED the I2C pins plus GPIO #4 for reset, so you have plenty of GPIO connections available for buttons, LEDs, sensors, etc. It sits nice and flat, so many cases that have an open top can have this display inserted.
Compared to our similar PiOLED display, this OLED has the same resolution but is much larger, so it can be read from across the room. This screen is made of 128×32 individual white OLED pixels and because the display makes its own light, no backlight is required. This reduces the power required to run the OLED and is why the display has such high contrast; we really like OLED displays for their crispness!
