Does anybody know if the Pro Micro - 3.3V/8MHz can support a display? If yes, what kind of display and how? (what kind of connection and how to program it) I have attached the pro micro with a bluetooth serial port module in order to send some dummy readings to an android app via bluetooth and I would like to have these readings shown on a display as well. I am looking for a very small display (3mm x 1mm), any suggestions? Thank you!
I have found a display which is appropriate for small Arduino based projects but I was wondering if I can and how to connect this display to my Pro Micro. Here you can find the data sheet of the display!
The Arduino Micro have the same functions as the UNO, so if you can find code for an UNO, then it will work with the Micro too.
But please check what kind of controller that is in the display, and see if there is documentation available, otherwise you will have a very hard time getting it to work.
Thank you for your reply! How about hardware, is there a way to connect the flexible pcb cable of the display with the pins of the Pro Micro?

I'd have to say, if you need to ask about that flex cable, you are over your head right now.
You will need to etch your own PCB where you need to solder that flex cable to, or find a suitable connector (read datasheet for display, to see if manufacturer tells what kind of connector that fits) and then you need to etch a pcb with footprint for that connector, and pins for Arduino.
Thank you again for your information!
If anyone knows of such a connector, according to the datasheet of the display given above, I would be more than grateful!
Something like this might be exactly right for your application.
In a nutshell it is an arduino and tiny oled display in one. Add your bluetooth module and you're set.
Why don’t you buy one of these, and save yourself a shitload of hassle ? http://www.seeedstudio.com/wiki/Electronic_Brick_-_OLED_96*16_Display
Why not look in the datasheet ? As you can see, the pitch for the cable is 0.4mm, which means you won’t readily find a connector. This cable is meant to be soldered directly to the board, like the seeed-board i linked to.
