Because the Monochrome 0.96″ 128×64 OLED Graphic 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!
This module is used with either an SPI or I2C interface – selectable by soldering two jumpers on the back. The design is completely 5V-ready, with an onboard regulator and built-in boost converter. It’s easier than ever to connect directly to your 3V or 5V microcontroller without needing any kind of level shifter!
128×64 OLED Graphic Display Specifications
- PCB: 38mm x 29mm (1.5″ x 1″)
- Screen: 25mm x 14mm
- Thickness: 4mm
- Weight: 8.5g
- Display current draw is completely dependent on your usage: each OLED LED draws current when on so the more pixels you have lit, the more current is used. They tend to draw ~20mA or so in practice but for precise numbers, you must measure the current in your usage circuit.
- This board/chip uses I2C 7-bit address between 0x3C-0x3D, selectable with jumpers
