Brand new, cutting-edge transparent OLED display! Also known as TOLED. 128x56 1.51 inch! As you can see from the images this OLED is super-bright, monochrome display. The pixel color is a light-blue when lit and about 70% transparent when not lit. There are actually 64 rows, however the bottom 8 rows have the "getter" so those pixels aren't viewable from the back.

This display supports, parallel, I2c, and SPI interfaces. We powered it up using an 3.3v Seeeduino/Arduino UNO Clone and a small break-out board. This little OLED uses the super common Solomon Systech SSD1309 integrated controller.

Check out the schematic in the datasheet to see how to wire this transparent display to your microcontroller. You'll need a few easily sourced components.

This is a 3.3v device, plugging it into a 5v can permanently damage this module.

The ZIF connector you need is a standard 24-position 0.5mm pitch. Here are some possible connectors:
Compatible Breakout board: 24-Pin FPC Connector to DIP Breakout Board 0.5mm 1mm Pitch

Video Demonstrations

128x56 Transparent OLED Display

Awesome little transparent OLED display. It's 128x56 pixels and 1.51" diagonal. It's super-bright, monochrome (light blue). We powered it up with a Seeeduino for this demonstration.

Wiring a Transparent OLED for an Arduino

Here's a quick video showing the wiring diagram for our transparent OLED display. You can find this info on page 6 of the datasheet as well. We've also linked the components you'll need on the product page.
