96×16 OLED display demo


This article shows how to drive an OLED module that uses SSD1307 driver IC.

OLEDs are just like LEDs, but are more power efficient (glass display module is rated 8.2mW). Displays using LED provide a large viewing angle (>160 degrees) and good visibility (contrast ratio >2000:1). Together with the low power requirements they are ideal for small battery powered devices like MP3 players. Downside is the degradation of the OLED, as the brightness will fade after many hours of use. Lifetime according to the datasheet is 10.000hrs, but burning in will probably happen sooner.
