NEW GUIDE: Adafruit 128×64 OLED FeatherWing #AdafruitLearningSystem #Adafruit #Feather @adafruit
Easily add a gorgeous 128×64 OLED to your Feather project!
This is the FeatherWing 128×64 OLED: it adds a gorgeous 128×64 monochrome OLED plus 3 user buttons to any Feather main board.
These displays are small, only about 1.3″ diagonal, but very readable due to the high contrast of an OLED display. This screen is made of 128×64 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 this miniature display for its crispness! We also toss on a reset button and three mini tactile buttons called A B and C, so you can add a mini user interface to your feather.
The Adafruit 128×64 OLED FeatherWing guide covers everything you need to know to get started with this lovely display. There are Overview, Pinouts, Assembly, Arduino usage (there is no CircuitPython support at this time), and Downloads resources pages. It’s all the information you need to get started using this display in your project!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
