Introduction: Displaying Images and Icons on OLED Using 8051

Picture of Displaying Images and Icons on OLED Using 8051

In this tutorial, we will see how to display the images/icons on 128x64 OLED. To do this we need 128x64 pixels images, if not we have to crop/resize the higher resolution images. This can be done using Photoshop or some other photo editors. We will be using the windows built in tool PAINT.

Step 1: Image Resize :

Picture of Image Resize :

Let's take a high resolution image which is shown in the above image and crop it to 128x64 and then generate the bitmap.

Download and open the above image using ms paint as shown in the above image.

Resize the image to 128x64 pixels.

Save the image in monochrome bitmap format .bmp as shown in above image.

Step 2: Bitmap Using Lcd Assistant :

Picture of Bitmap Using Lcd Assistant :

Now run the LCD Assistant software and load the monochrome image saved in the previous step.

Do the setting as shown in the second image.

Click on FILE->Save Output and save the output file as logo.txt .

The bitmap for the image will be saved in an array as shown in the 4th image.

Use this array in your code for displaying the image/logo on the graphic display.

Step 3: List of Components/Module Required :

Make the connections as per the above fritzing diagram.

Step 5: Code :

Below is the complete code with the bit map array. Check oled_i2c.c file for pin connection.

#include "oled_i2c.h"
code char IPL_Logo [] = { 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x80, 0x80, 0xC0, 0xC0, 0xC0, 0xC0,
