Created a small 0.96" Oled Display for the BeagleBone Black. Could possibly be used to monitor uptime, ram and memory available: http://youtu.be/CQBb_RW_sLI

Very nice, I’ve been looking at oled displays to use in a project. I really like your scroll animation… should be good for all sorts of data.

I just put it for sale on Tindie.com. Just search the site for BeagleBone and you will see it. Not sure if anyone would want one so I only made the one last night. Backorders are enabled so I can make one up for each order.

That’s slick.

Previously my setup consisted of a mess of wires connected to a display on a breadboard. This is much more portable.

Just ordered one, and while waiting for it to be assembled / shipped - how one will talk to the display? I cannot find any mention of interface spec

And now landeded here…

First comment… anyway to move the board a smidege more into the body of BBB? It was soooo close to fitting inside http://www.adafruit.com/products/1555

(mike rankin) #14

Good idea. I have no case for mine and never thought of mounting it more towards the middle.

@mike_rankin , I have finally came to that project, and I am trying to make it work on Debian’ BBB (kernel 3.8.13). Do you happen to have a pinout of your LCD, I would rather not reverse-engineer it unless I have to :wink:

(mike rankin) #16

Email me and I’ll attach the schematic.
