OLED has a much brighter display, much better viewing angle and lower current consumption than backlit LCDs means that OLEDs are set to become the new LCDs!
The Serial OLED module allows PICAXE projects to display messages on a yellow on black OLED.
- Uses a pre programmed PICAXE 18M2 chip to provide control of the screen.
- Interface via a single serial line
Can be connected to Pat’s Microcontroller to extend the possible usages.
IC Inserter for 14/16-Pin Integrated circuit chips. Designed to reduce the risk of bending the IC’s legs when inserting them.
