Developers and hobbyists that have started using the Adafruit range of Feather Board development boards, are sure to interested to know that a new OLED display has been launched by Adafruit in the form of the FeatherWing, which has been specifically designed to be used with Adafruits new Feather boards.
The FeatherWing OLED provides 128×32 monochrome OLED plus three user buttons to any Feather developer board, Adafruit explains more.
Using our Feather Stacking Headers or Feather Female Headers you can connect a FeatherWing on top of your Feather board and let the board take flight! These displays are small, only about 1″ diagonal, but very readable due to the high contrast of an OLED display.
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 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.
Tested works with our Feather 32u4, M0 and ESP8266 boards. The OLED uses only the two I2C pins on the Feather, and you can pretty much stack it with any other FeatherWing, even ones that use I2C since that is a shared bus.
The FeatherWing OLED display is now available to purchase direct from the Adafruit store priced at $14.95.
