1.7” Smart micro OLED Display with PIXXI-28 Integration

The uOLED-160P2 is an impressive Pixxi-28 OLED display module in the 4D Systems micro OLED graphics display range and an upgrade to the original Goldelox-based uOLED-160G2.

Combining a resolution of 1.7″ 160 x 128 pixels with 65K True-to-Life colours, this display module is perfect for animations, slideshows, and other multimedia presentations. It is the ideal size for attractive embedded display applications.

This module is a compact and cost-effective Intelligent Display Module using the latest state-of-the-art Passive Matrix OLED (PMOLED) technology. Driving the module and its peripherals is the Pixxi-28 processor, a very capable chip that provides impressive graphics power, programmed with 4D Systems Workshop4 IDE Software.

4D Systems Workshop4 IDE enables graphic solutions to be constructed rapidly and easily due to its design solely for 4D graphics controllers.
The uOLED-160P2 has a modest but comprehensive range of features suited for an application requiring a bright eye-catching display, an analog input, Dallas 1-wire sensor capability, audio generation, or simply digital I/O. This is truly an impressive little module.

Some of the significant upgrades from the Goldelox version of this module include FAT file system capability, uSD or Flash storage, considerably more processor Flash and RAM, Faster Processor with more features, and ViSi-Genie capability, all of which improve on what was available with the original Goldelox modules.
