You can use this sensor with any CircuitPython microcontroller board or with a computer that has GPIO and Python thanks to Adafruit_Blinka, our CircuitPython-for-Python compatibility library.

We'll cover how to wire the OLED to your CircuitPython microcontroller board. First assemble your OLED.

Connect the OLED to your microcontroller board as shown below.

There's no SSD1305 or SSD1325 Large OLED Fritzing objects, so we sub'd a Graphic LCD in
