128x56 Transparent OLED Display

Part Number: CFAL12856A0-0151-B

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 5v can permanently damage this module.

If you think an LCD would be a better fit, we have a 1.1" Transparent LCD and a 2.2" Transparent LCD, both are super low-power.

Compatible Breakout board: OLED Breakout Board

The ZIF connector you need is:
24-position 0.5mm pitch
