Get Started With 0.5" OLED Display

Introduction: Get Started With 0.5" OLED Display

About: I like making things, specially if they can move.

Did you ever needed a very small screen for a project but the only thing that you find are the 16x2 LCD display's?

Now the offer is much bigger, and they came in all sizes. DFRobot send me the SPI/I2C Monochrome 60x32 0.5" OLED Display for Arduino for my next project.
