RGB OLED Breakout - 0.6"

Added to your shopping cart

We may have spoken too soon when we named the Micro OLED Breakout… This new display from WiseChip packs in more pixels (64 x 64), two more color channels and additional display RAM into an even smaller 0.6" screen. For all these features packed into such a small space it’s practically a ‘nano’ display! The breakout PCB adds a 3.3V regulator for logic, a 12V boost converter to power the display, and level shifting circuits to allow direct connection to both 3.3V and 5V microcontrollers.

The 64x64 screen has a surprising amount of room for graphics, images, and anything else you could think to display. An Arduino Uno can refresh the entire display at up to 50 Hz. This means that whether you’re displaying album art on a home-made MP3 player or making a pocket-sized game this display will be up to the task!

Complementing this amazing display is a flexible Arduino library that allows you to draw on the display, show photo-realistic images, and devise completely custom fonts - all in every color of the rainbow! Getting started is as easy as loading one of the example sketches on your microcontroller of choice and making the appropriate electrical connections.

  • 64x64 pixel resolution
  • 16 bit color depth for each pixel
  • 16k bytes display ram can be displayed (8k at once)
  • SPI interface, plus D/C and RST pins
  • Boost converter built-in
  • Supply voltage from 2.6 to 5.5V
  • 57mA draw @ 5V supply, full-white display
  • 50 Hz full-screen update rate
  • PCB dimensions: 1.2" x 0.9" x 0.2"
  • Display dimensions 0.9" x 0.8" x 0.2"
  • 0.8" spaced 4-40 mounting holes
  • OLED panel is detachable with FFC connector

Customer Comments

  • When you say an Uno can refresh it at 50 Hz, do you mean 50 of the pixels changed per second, or do you mean all 64x64 pixels changed 50 times in one second?

    • BotherO / last week / 1

      Hello - glad you asked to clarify. This means that all 64x64 pixels can be updated 50 times in one second, and that is what you can expect to see when using a 16 MHz Uno that is not doing too many other complicated processes.

      I got that result from a practical experiment on the Uno - the theoretical limit is just over 150 Hz assuming you could continually send data to the display at the maximum communication frequency of 10 MHz. Of course all the other things that usually need to happen (like generating the new data, sending commands, etc…) will keep anyone from ever actually making 150 Hz.

      Hope that helped answer your question, and if it didn’t just gimme a shout.

      Have fun!

  • All of those documents marked Confidential to Wisechip is bad form. Can you get versions without the watermark?

    • Hi and thanks for the heads up about the datasheets - when we posted the product we had a short discussion about whether or not anyone would say anything. Now we know the answer to that one! The good news is that we have permission from WiseChip to share the information. The bad news is that they didn’t provide an un-marked copy when I asked. In lieu of that I will update the product page to let everyone know they aren’t reading contraband material ;) Again thanks and feel free to reach out with any more comments/concerns!
