I'm new on this!

So I want to know if is it posible to connect this oled display: oled display to arduino nano and if is it posible where can I found information of how to learn about connect this type of mini display.

And if you can share some links about good learning site would be cool too!


  • I think you'll have trouble connecting it, as it does not seem to come with an interface card, just with a bare small pitch connector that will be very hard to solder. It looks like there's no technical documentation, which for me would be a deal breaker. If you're a beginner I would advise against it. – StarCat May 11 '20 at 10:48

Yes, you can. If you have the adaptor board for it as shown in the video.

The key item from the description to note is the driver chip: SSD1309

That is what you need to know to find a library and connection schema.

  • Thanks for the answer. And is it posible to buy a generic adaptor or made one? Because I ask to seller and the adaptor is to expensive more than 10 times the price of the screen... Thanks in advance PD: I find this new oled display that I think it would be better. – Marc vergara May 11 '20 at 8:05
  • No, there's no such thing as a "generic" adaptor. Every display is different. The datasheet for the display should have a schematic for what the interfacing needs are. If there is no datasheet then don't buy it. – Majenko May 11 '20 at 9:34
  • Don't do it. It is an expensive display as it is, and it's not made to be easily used with an Arduino, especially without an interface card and 5V / 3.3V conversion. If you want an OLED attached to an Arduino Nano there are displays that are much easier to interface and use. – StarCat May 11 '20 at 10:54

    @StarCat Ah, but it's "transparent". Gotta charge 10x as much if you remove that back plate... – Majenko May 11 '20 at 11:01
  • So this one: sparkfun.com/products/15173 would be better I imagine? And of the first one I have the datasheet. – Marc vergara May 11 '20 at 14:53
