Developer Paolo Bernardi has taken to Kickstarter this month to bring his new my-ssd1306 hardware to market. The new board takes the form of an HTML interface to SSD1306 OLED display and is now available to back via Kickstarter with early bird pledges available from just €5 or £4. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the new development board that is capable of transforming your “SSD1306 OLED Display into an RS232 monitor with HTML built-in parser.”
“My-ssd1306 is an interface board for display OLED SSD1306 (with I2C port enabled) created to extend the use of these displays to all the devices equipped with RS232. Moreover, thanking the fact that all the libraries needed to get the display working are inside the my-ssd1306 board, you can use I2C OLED SSD1306 display with any kind of processor, no matters how performance is.
My-ssd1306 board should be put between the RS232 source and the I2C SSD1306 target. Two series of connection pins are provided both have VCC, GND, SDA and SCL but one serie has the VCC and GND swapped to allows a direct connection via a connector because some commercial displays have these two pins inverted.”
