Hardware Assembly

The flexible OLED is fairly simple to connect to your microcontroller. You can either solder headers to the OLED breakout or solder wires straight to the breakout pins. If you've not soldered headers to a board, make sure to check out our tutorial here on soldering.

Hookup Table

The onboard buffer means that you can hook the display straight up to 3.3V or 5V logic without the need for any logic conversion circuitry. Therefore, you can just connect the pins directly to the I/O on your microcontroller. Simply connect the pins to their assignments in the below table and we'll be ready to go. These pins can be changed in software later if you need to use any of them to control other parts of your project.

VIN Should be between 3.5V - 5V
GND 0V/common voltage
RES Pin 9
SDIN Pin 11
SCLK Pin 13
CSPin 10
