When you need low power, ultra-high contrast and any-angle readability, you can't beat these great looking character OLEDs. They are pin/shape compatible with 'standard' HD44780 LCDs. The code is slightly different (they're more timing sensitive) so we have our own Arduino library that plays better with the OLEDs than the standard LiquidCrystal library. Best of all, no backlight or contrast control is required, so they're even simpler to get running.
This OLED is not compatible with any of our LCD shields or backpacks!
As an added bonus, the controller allows you to use it as a 100x16 graphic display as well - check the WS0010 datasheet for details. We don't have a tutorial for this mode.
By default, the module is set up to be 4 or 8-bit HD44780 compatible. If you're handy with a soldering iron, you can apparently place it in 'SPI' mode, by changing some of the jumpers on the back of the PCB. We don't have a tutorial for using this mode, check the datasheets for details.
For basic wiring information, check out our detailed step-by-step Arduino+LCD tutorial however, you'll need to use our character OLED library and wire up the RW pin instead of grounding it

We have a datasheet that has dimensions and pin-locations and then a WS0010 datasheet with the detailed commands for control
This NHD display datasheet seems to be identical and has some information on how to set the display into SPI mode by adjusting the L_CS_H and L_PS_H resistor jumpers on the back of the PCB
