Overview of OLED Display

There are various kinds of OLED displays. They vary in the way they communicate, their sizes, and their colors.

  • Communication methods: I2C, SPI
  • Dimensions: 128x64, 128x32...
  • Colors: white, blue, two-tone...
Arduino UNO R4 OLED

SPI is usually quicker than I2C but needs more pins on the Arduino UNO R4. In contrast, I2C only needs two pins and these pins can connect to multiple I2C devices. You have to choose between using fewer pins or having faster communication. For OLED screens with I2C, there are different drivers like SSD1306 and SH1106. This guide uses the 128x64 SSD1306 I2C OLED Display

I2C OLED Display Pinout

  • GND pin: should be connected to the ground of Arduino UNO R4
  • VCC pin: is the power supply for the display which we connect the 5 volts pin on the Arduino UNO R4.
  • SCL pin: is a serial clock pin for I2C interface.
  • SDA pin: is a serial data pin for I2C interface.

※ NOTE THAT:

The arrangement of pins on an OLED module can differ based on the manufacturer and the model of the module. Always check and follow the labels on the OLED module. Be attentive!

This guide is for an OLED display that uses the SSD1306 I2C driver. We tested it with an OLED display from DIYables. It functions perfectly without any problems.

How To Use OLED with Arduino UNO R4

Install SSD1306 OLED library

  • Go to the Libraries icon on the left side of the Arduino IDE.
  • Type "SSD1306" in the search box and look for the SSD1306 library made by Adafruit.
  • Press the Install button to add the library.

  • You will need to install some additional libraries.
  • Click the Install All button to install all the required libraries.
Arduino UNO R4 Adafruit GFX sensor library

How to program for OLED

  • Include a library.
#include <Wire.h> #include <Adafruit_GFX.h> #include <Adafruit_SSD1306.h>
  • Set the screen size to OLED 123x64.
#define SCREEN_WIDTH 128 // Defines the width of the OLED display in pixels #define SCREEN_HEIGHT 64 // Defines the height of the OLED display in pixels
  • Create an SSD1306 OLED item.
// Initialize an Adafruit SSD1306 display object for I2C communication Adafruit_SSD1306 oled(SCREEN_WIDTH, SCREEN_HEIGHT, &Wire, -1);
  • In the setup() function, set up the OLED screen.
// Start OLED display with specific I2C address (0x3C) for 128x64 resolution if (!oled.begin(SSD1306_SWITCHCAPVCC, 0x3C)) { Serial.println(F("SSD1306 allocation failed")); // Print error message if initialization fails while (true); // Enter an infinite loop to halt further execution }
  • Then you can show text, pictures, and draw lines.

Here are some functions you can use to show text on the OLED:

  • oled.clearDisplay(): turns off all pixels.
  • oled.drawPixel(x, y, color): draws a pixel at x, y coordinates.
  • oled.setTextSize(n): changes text size, with choices from 1 to 8.
  • oled.setCursor(x, y): sets the starting point for text.
  • oled.setTextColor(WHITE): makes the text color white.
  • oled.setTextColor(BLACK, WHITE): makes the text color black and background white.
  • oled.println("message"): displays text.
  • oled.println(number): displays a number.
  • oled.println(number, HEX): shows a number in hexadecimal format.
  • oled.display(): updates the display with changes.
  • oled.startscrollright(start, stop): moves text from left to right.
  • oled.startscrollleft(start, stop): moves text from right to left.
  • oled.startscrolldiagright(start, stop): moves text diagonally from the bottom-left to top-right.
  • oled.startscrolldiagleft(start, stop): moves text diagonally from the bottom-right to top-left.
  • oled.stopscroll(): stops any scrolling text.

Arduino UNO R4 Code – Display Image

To display an image on an OLED screen, first turn the image (any format) into a bitmap array. You can use this online tool to convert it. Look at the image below to see how to change an image into a bitmap array. I changed the Arduino icon into a bitmap array.

※ NOTE THAT:

  • The picture size must be as small as or smaller than the screen size.
  • To use the given code for an OLED 128x32, you must resize the image and adjust the width and height in the oled.drawBitmap(); function.

OLED Troubleshooting

If the OLED screen shows nothing, please follow these steps:

  • Ensure the wiring is done properly.
  • Confirm that your I2c OLED is equipped with an SSD1306 driver.
  • Verify the I2C address of your OLED using the following I2C Address Scanner code on Arduino UNO R4.
// I2C address scanner program #include <Wire.h> void setup() { Wire.begin(); Serial.begin(9600); Serial.println("I2C Scanner"); } void loop() { byte error, address; int nDevices; Serial.println("Scanning..."); nDevices = 0; for(address = 1; address < 127; address++ ) { Wire.beginTransmission(address); error = Wire.endTransmission(); if (error == 0) { Serial.print("I2C device found at address 0x"); if (address < 16) Serial.print("0"); Serial.print(address,HEX); Serial.println(" !"); nDevices++; } else if (error==4) { Serial.print("Unknown error at address 0x"); if (address < 16) Serial.print("0"); Serial.println(address,HEX); } } if (nDevices == 0) Serial.println("No I2C devices found"); else Serial.println("done"); delay(5000); // wait 5 seconds for next scan }

The output on the Serial Monitor:
