Introducing the Miniature 0.32" OLED Screen + Rotary Encoder Combo Breakout board!
This breakout board combines the World's Smallest 0.32" OLED 60x32 Display Screen with a Mini Rotary Encoder w/ Push Button, providing a compact solution for adding a mini user interface to any project.
The OLED display offers crisp, clear visuals for displaying text, symbols, or simple graphics, making it ideal for real-time feedback.
The rotary encoder facilitates smooth navigation and input. An added functionality is that pressing down on the rotary encoder transforms it into a button, allowing for the selection of menu items and more, enhancing its utility and interactivity.
Designed for flexibility, the board is breadboard-friendly and yet can also be integrated into finished products. It measures only 2.3cm x 1.2cm, making it ideal for small, compact projects.
The board has the following pinouts:
The OLED uses the I2C interface and can be used with open source libraries such as: U8g2_Arduino
When using the above library, be sure to use the following constructor:
U8G2_SSD1306_60X32_ER_F_SW_I2C u8g2(U8G2_R0, / SCL=/ , / SDA=/ , / reset=/ U8X8_PIN_NONE); // EastRising 0.32" OLED
For the Rotary Encoder, A and B are the outputs of the 2-bit gray code of the encoder, while BTN is the output of the momentary push button mechanism. You can connect A, B and BTN to any digital input pins of a microcontroller and use open source libraries such as: Rotary Encoder Arduino Library
Potential Use Cases:
Portable Music Player: Users can navigate through playlists and control volume, with the display showing track information or equalizer settings.
Wearable Devices: For smartwatches or fitness bands, allowing users to scroll through menus or stats, with the display providing real-time feedback on activity or notifications.
Miniature DIY Gaming Devices: Create compact, portable gaming devices where the encoder serves as the control input, and the OLED displays game stats or simple graphics.
Prototype User Interfaces: Ideal for prototyping devices with a need for a small display and an input mechanism, from kitchen appliances to scientific instruments. It is breadboard friendly and can be easily integrated into any project.
Real-time Breadboard-friendly Debugging Console: In a practical Arduino debugging scenario, the OLED display can show real-time variables, system states, or error messages, providing immediate visual feedback on the program's behavior. The rotary encoder, with its intuitive navigation capability, allows the user to scroll through different data points or error logs captured by the Arduino. Pressing down on the rotary encoder to act as a button brings an added layer of interaction—this could be used to toggle between different debugging modes or to select specific functions to inspect more closely. For instance, you could program the button press to freeze the display on a particular value of interest, enabling you to examine fluctuating data without missing critical changes. Alternatively, it could trigger the display of the next set of data, cycle through various sensor readings, or even reset the state of the Arduino during iterative testing.
