Grove - OLED Display 0.96 inch

Introduction

3.3V 5.0V I2C

Grove - OLED Display 0.96” module is an OLED monochrome 128×64dot matrix display module with Grove 4pin I2C Interface.Comparing to LCD, OLED screens are more competitive, which has a number of advantages such as high brightness, self-emission, high contrast ratio, slim / thin outline, wide viewing angle, wide temperature range, and low power consumption. It has bigger screen so that it can display more contents than the OLED 96×96.

Features


  • Grove compatible interface
  • Communicate Mode:I2C
  • Low power consumption
  • Display Color: White
  • Wide range of operating temperature:-20℃~70℃

Warning

Please notice: heavy impact or stress on the OLED will cause the breakdown of screen.

Tip

Platforms Supported


Getting Started


With Arduino

Connection

The OLED128*64 uses all the pins of SSD1308 chip, the default original point is on the top left corner. You can also change the original point by adjusting the program and in order to display your desired patterns. For more details, please refer SSD1308_1.0.pdf and LY190-128064.pdf.

Here we demonstrate how to display “Hello World” on the screen.

First of all, We need to prepare the below stuffs:

Seeeduino V4 Grove - OLED Display 0.96inch Base Shield
enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here
Get ONE Now Get ONE Now Get ONE Now
  • Plug the Grove OLED Display 128*64 onto the I2C port on Grove Base Shield, and then plug the Base Shield into Seeeduino;

Software

#include <Wire.h>
#include <SeeedOLED.h>


void setup()
{
  Wire.begin();
  SeeedOled.init();  //initialze SEEED OLED display

  SeeedOled.clearDisplay();          //clear the screen and set start position to top left corner
  SeeedOled.setNormalDisplay();      //Set display to normal mode (i.e non-inverse mode)
  SeeedOled.setPageMode();           //Set addressing mode to Page Mode
  SeeedOled.setTextXY(0,0);          //Set the cursor to Xth Page, Yth Column  
  SeeedOled.putString("Hello World!"); //Print the String

}

void loop()
{

}

  • Upload the code.
  • We can see “hello world” on screen.

With Beaglebone Green

To begin editing programs that live on BBG, you can use the Cloud9 IDE and refer Beaglebone Green Wiki.

Here are the steps how to display “Hello World” on OLED.

Step1: Click the “+” in the top-right to create a new file.

Step2:Copy and paste the following code into the new tab


from Adafruit_I2C import Adafruit_I2C
import time
import math


Oled = Adafruit_I2C(0x3c)
Command_Mode=0x80
Data_mode=0x40

Step3: Save the file by clicking the disk icon with with the .py extension.

Step4: Connect Grove - OLED to Grove I2C socket on BBG.

Step5: Run the code. We’ll find that the Grove - OLED outputs “Hello World”.
