A crisp, bright 1.12" OLED that's ideal for adding a small display to your project. This 128x128 pixel, monochrome white/black display is ideal for graphing, readouts, and displaying basic icons. Now available in SPI or I2C flavours!

This 1.12" OLED breakout is now available in SPI or I2C versions. If you have SPI available on your microcontroller, we'd recommend the SPI version, as you can drive it much, much faster, for buttery-smooth animations.

OLEDs have the advantage of being extremely bright and readable, with great contrast. Because this one is small, it's great for fitting into projects where space is at a premium, and it's Raspberry Pi and Arduino-compatible!

It's compatible with our fancy Breakout Garden, where using breakouts is as easy just popping it into one of the slots and starting to grow your project, create, and code.

With the SPI version, pop it into either one of the SPI sockets on Breakout Garden, or connect it with wires to the following pins on your Pi (note that it's BCM pin numbering):

  • 3-5V to any 5V or 3V pin
  • CS to BCM 7
  • SCK to BCM 11
  • MOSI to BCM 10
  • DC to BCM 9
  • GND to any ground pin


We recommend the Luma Python library for driving this OLED display. You can find full documentation for the Luma library here.

To get up and running you should:

  • Install the latest library directly from GitHub: sudo pip install git+git://github.com/rm-hull/luma.oled.git#egg=luma.oled
  • Grab the examples repository: git clone https://github.com/rm-hull/luma.examples
  • You can run an example like so: python3 bounce.py --display sh1106 --height 128 --rotate 2 --interface spi --gpio-data-command 9 (add --spi-device 0 for the back slot, or --spi-device 1 for the front slot)

The software does not support Raspbian Wheezy.


  • Dimensions: 28x42x5.5mm.
