Available today and tomorrow: OLED displays
The availability of components in the electronics industry is currently a hotly debated topic. In most cases, a single thoughtlessly selected component part is all it takes to cause a total production stop if there are disruptions in the supply chain.
OLED displays of the “EA OLED” series are available – now from stock and in the next 10 years without any technical modifications. They come in a variety of versions, for example, as a graphic display with 128x64 (EA OLEDM128-6) or 102x64 dots (EA OLEDS102-6) and as a pure text variant with 4x20 characters (EA OLEDM204-A). Thanks to their high contrast and exceptionally wide viewing angle, they all offer outstanding readability. A unique selling point of these displays is their very rapid response time, which loses nothing of its crispness even at arctic temperatures of up to -40°C.
These displays are optionally available with an additional front screen for extra protection against scratching and UV radiation, which would reduce the service life of this display technology. They can be connected to microcontroller systems via either an SPI or I²C bus interface.
The modules are fitted with connecting pins in a 2.54-mm grid, making them suitable for both initial prototypes built on the breadboard and series production, because soldering into a PCB eliminates the need for any other assembly structures. A USB test board is available for quick and easy startup.
