Qwiic Transparent OLED HUD

Stock code: SPX-14691

Everyone who sees this display lit up says it looks like something from a sci-fi movie. The OLED segments on this transparent display look almost like they’re floating in mid-air! Designed for use in vehicle heads-up displays, this OLED panel is brilliant in the dark but easily visible in daylight. The display is “area colored” meaning that while no one segment can change colors, there are different colored segments on the display.

Our Qwiic breakout board allows you to easily control the display using the I²C protocol and includes a voltage step-up to generate the panel’s 12v driving voltage from Qwiic’s 3.3v bus. To make things even easier, we’ve thrown together an Arduino library so that doing things like changing the speedometer read out is as easy as calling setSpeedometer() in your sketch.

This board is one of our many Qwiic compatible boards! Simply plug and go. No soldering, no figuring out which is SDA or SCL, and no voltage regulation or translation required!

Heads up!
The Arduino sketch required to drive this display requires quite a bit of dynamic memory, meaning that it is not going to fit on a smaller controller like an ATmega328. Any controller with larger RAM should have no problem. It has been tested to run very well on an Arduino Mega 2560. In addition, your 3.3v source should be robust enough to supply around 400mA to the display.

We do not plan to regularly produce SparkX products so get them while they’re hot!
