RPi Pico and OLED display (SSD1331)

Post by cadotif983 » Sat Jan 30, 2021 2:39 am

The display I have been trying to get working appears to be supported by this:

https://github.com/adafruit/micropython ... b-display/

However the .MPY files provided appear to be incompatible with the pi pico's version of micropython since the repo is archived.

I'm not sure how to rebuild it or what parameters I would need.

Could someone please point me in the right direction :D

The link you provided is marked "deprecated".

The nano-gui project supports the SSD1331 and has a driver for it. Specifically this display is supported.

Thank you for the reply! I just discovered that the rpi pico supports circuit python so I'll try to get it working with this lib:

The github link you sent says "(Micro)Python class to access the MFRC522 RFID reader", how is this related? :)

Because When I tested something it is possible that I'm using more than one components.
On this github it was an example how to create a level indicator with a mpu6050 and the SSD1331 for display.

Why would I bother to create a github for each. It is still open code ! It is up to you to take what you want!

Did you ever check inside to find the ssd1331 library?

Sorry, I couldn't find any mention of the display in any of the github links in the forum discussion you linked, I'm not very experienced with this kind of thing :). Could you please link the github that would help me get the SSD1331 working on the Pico?
