• Ideal for applications, hobby electronics or replacing faulty screens

Common issues associated traditional LCDs can be overcome by using OLEDs and they don't exhibit the lag with scrolling associated with LCD. Colour is sharp, vibrant and helps to produce stunning displays and no back lighting is required. Built around the industry standard HDD44780 chipset, this display can be used where ordinary LCDs are meant to go. It can add an attractive finish to home built Arduino, Raspberry Pi or other electronic projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice display Currently using with my Arduino and this screen is simple to setup/program. Nice clear display with 8 programmable characters. Uses 6 pins + 5V & Gnd and can be programmed with the LiquidCrystal library. Recommended.

Just tried to exchange standard 2x16 lcd display with this oled, however there does seem to be a possible compatability issue, is there a specific operation to put it into compatability mode ? Reverting to the original lcd and normal operation was resumed

The documentation seems to suggest that this display can be a drop in replacement for an existing 2X16 LCD display which uses the defacto Hitachi Chipset, can you confirm this.

Asked by: Paul
Yes, I am pleased to advise the item will support this use.

I'm very new to Raspberry Pi and want to set up a Kodi media centre. Can I use this screen to display the 'now playing' info from Kodi using LCDProc or something similar? Thanks!

2 questions: 1) is this pre-soldered (i.e. so I don't need to solder)? 2) how does one drive this from an Arduino?

Asked by: spit
This item is not pre-soldered and although it is Arduino compatible we are unable to assist in your own design project.
