EASY plug Ultimate Starter Learning Kit Project 16: Hello, kaka!

Posted by Fiona Su on

Overview
An OLED (organic light-emitting diode) can be widely used in mobile devices for display applications.
In the project, we will show you how to use an OLED module to display the text.
Component Required

  • EASY plug control board*1
  • EASY plug OLED Module*1
  • RJ11 cable*1
  • USB cable*1

Component Introduction



OLED is short for organic light emitting diode. On the microscopic level, an OLED display is a matrix of organic LEDs that light up when they emit energy.
Our EASY Plug OLED displays are perfect when you need a small display with vivid, high-contrast color. The visible portion of the OLED measures 0.96" diagonal and contains 128 x 64 pixels.
An OLED display works without a backlight. Thus, it can display deep black levels and can be thinner and lighter than a liquid crystal display (LCD).
In low ambient light conditions such as a dark room an OLED screen can achieve a higher contrast ratio than an LCD.
OLED technology is used in commercial applications such as displays for mobile phones and portable digital media players, car radios and digital cameras among others.
Specifications

  • 0.96" diagonal OLED
  • Pixels: 128 × 64
  • Color Depth: Monochrome(White)
  • 5V power
  • Brightness (cd/m2): 100(Typ)

Connect It Up
Connect the EASY Plug OLED module to control board using an RJ11 cable.

Troubleshooting:
Upload Failed ?
This happens sometimes, the most likely case is a confused Board and serial port, you should firstly select your proper board and port.
Or make sure you have placed all the libraries below into arduino-1.8.5 libraries folder directory.
Pay more attention that the library folder can’t be overlapped.
