OLED Recommendations

Hi all,

I'm looking for an OLED screen to display some info in the car, so the ability to clearly see the screen in sunlight is a must.

Anyone able to recommened a suitable screen, possibly a popular one with plenty library support?

Thanks B

Check put the 4D Systems boards, there is a library written for them by one of the guys here.


Sounds good, will check it out - thanks for ye reply!

The SSD1325 based display from NHD (http://www.newhavendisplay.com/nhd2712864ucy3-p-3621.html) is supported by http://code.google.com/p/u8glib/.


The 4D Systems displays are pretty nice, but their OLEDs only come in sub-2" sizes. If that's all you need, they're not a bad option. They use a simple serial interface and have a fairly well-documented API. They also have SD slots built-in, which can be used both as image/video storage for the display and as storage accessible by your microcontroller.

I've been writing a library that currently has something like 95% API support for their OLEDs' serial interface. If you decide to check them out, you can find my library on github at http://github.com/planetarian/4Duino

There are some other libraries out there for the displays as well, though to my knowledge there are only two (including mine) that are being currently maintained. The other one has a thread on these forums somewhere too.

Look for posts by avenue33, he has a library for larger displays.
