Once you have seen an OLED display in use you will never want to use an LCD again!

Much brighter display, much better viewing angle and lower current consumption than backlit LCDs means that OLEDs are set to become the new LCDs!

The 'serial interface' PCB is fitted with a pre-programmed PICAXE-18M2 chip and may be used with a 8x2, 16x2 or 20x4 OLED display module. Module requires soldering to the screen with the supplied headers.

The on-board PICAXE-18M2 chip is provided pre-programmed with the open-source AXE133 firmware, which allows this 18M2 chip to act as a 'slave' serial driver for the OLED display. This allows your main project to display text on the serial OLED via simple serout commands, such as -

serout B.7, N2400, ("Hello")

The AXE133 firmware is preinstalled on the driver board but can also be downloaded from here.

Kindly note that we now supply the AXE131 (surface mount) version of the driver PCB with all OLED kits. This is identical in operation to the superseded AXE133 (through hole) PCB and uses exactly the same firmware.
