At 2.2" diagonal, this display is big enough to get all the information across. Plus, it's readable in most lighting environments, from indoor light to direct sunlight. If you're looking for a display that can be read in low-light situations, check out the backlight version of this display. This display has a 128x64 monochrome array, plus a row of addressed icons along the top edge of the display.
The included adapter board simplifies integrating the display into a product or bringing up a demonstration of the display. The board breaks the ZIF tail out into a 16-position 0.1" header. This makes wiring the display simple and solder-free. The 2x2-56 threaded standoffs on the adapter board enable the entire assembly to be mounted into a final design.
