Using an SSD1306 OLED Graphic Display With a Beagle Bone

Adafruit customer Toby Wintrmute posted up some nice code to get our OLED graphic displays working with the Beagle Bone.  He even has some nice extras like posting PNG files directly to the OLED displays.

I’ve been hacking away on the BeagleBone some more, and I’ve come up with a controller for the common SSD1306 LCD controller, using the SPI interface. This controller is behind a bunch of the available small graphical LCD panels out there.

I’ve also written supporting libraries to display both text and PNG files, although don’t expect too much from a 128×32 monochrome image!

I’ve uploaded my notes and libraries here:

Great work Toby, and thanks for sharing!

New from the fine people who have brought us the Beagle Board, we now have a smaller, lighter, but powerful single board linux computer, Beagle Bone! We like this move to a more compact and integrated SBC. For example, there is onboard Ethernet and USB host, as well as a USB client interface (a FTDI chip for shell access). It even comes preloaded with Angstrom Linux on the 4 GB microSD card!

In Stock and Shipping Now!  Also pick up an Adafruit OLED display here.
