The OLED FeatherWing plugs into any Feather and adds a cute little display. To make it as cross-platform compatible as possible, we use only I2C to control the display. This is not as fast as SPI but it uses only two pins, can share the I2C bus and is fine for the small 128x32 pixel OLED.

Power Pins

OLED displays do not have a backlight, and are fairly low power, this display will draw about 10mA when in use. The display uses 3V power and logic so we just connect to the 3V and GND pins from the feather, as indicated above.

I2C Data Pins

The cute little OLED does all of the data transfer over the I2C pins, highlighed above SDA and SCL. No other pins are required. There are two 2.2K pullups to 3V on each.

These pins can be shared with other I2C devices.

The I2C address is 0x3C and cannot be changed

Optional Buttons

We had a little bit of space so we added three mini tactile buttons that you can use for user interface. We label them A B and C because each Feather has slightly different pin numbering schemes and we wanted to make it 'universal'

If you're using ATmega328P, Atmega32u4, ATSAMD51 M4 or ATSAMD21 M0 Feather

  • Button A is #9 (note this is also used for the battery voltage divider so if you want to use both make sure you disable the pullup when you analog read, then turn on the pullup for button reads)
  • Button B is #6
  • Button C is #5

If you're using ESP8266:

  • Button A is #0
  • Button B is #16
  • Button C is #2

If you're using WICED/STM32 Feather

  • Button A is #PA15
  • Button B is #PC7
  • Button C is #PC5

Button B has a 100K pullup on it so it will work with the ESP8266 (which does not have an internal pullup available on that pin). You will need to set up a pullup on all other pins for the buttons to work.

Reset Button

Sometimes its nice to be able to restart your program, so we also have a reset button. It is tied to the RST pin marked above.
