After previously being made available without pins, Adafruit has this week announced the availability of a fully assembled FeatherWing OLED, offering a handy 128×32 monochrome OLED plus 3 user buttons to any Feather main board. For those that are not used Adafruit’s Further development boards the range of handy electronics can be used both stand-alone and are stackable.
The range of Feather boards developed by Adafruit can bepowered by lipo batteries for on-the-go use or by their micro-USB plugs for stationary projects. Feathers are flexible, portable, and as light as their namesake. For the full range of Feather boards, add-ons and accessories currently available jump over to the Adafruit online store via the link below. The FeatherWing OLED 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.”
The OLED board supports Feather 32u4, M0 and ESP8266 boards and is now available to purchase priced at $15.95.
