TinyScreen OLED TinyShield - ASD2431-R
Update: Be sure to check out the TinyScreen+, an updated version that puts the processor, USB, battery
charging and TinyScreen into a single board!
Originally Launched on Kickstarter!
TinyScreen is a beautiful color OLED display for your TinyDuino system. Create video games, a video player, or
your own smart watch using this Tiny OLED screen! The screen is 0.96" diagonal with a resolution of 96x64 RGB
pixels, each with 16-bit color. Since this is an OLED, there is no backlight needed and the screen is very bright with
excellent colors. Four buttons are located along the side of the screen to allow for user input - like for playing games
or creating menus for your projects (like is done on the TinyScreen Smartwatch project). The screen has a built in IO
expander over I2C for control signals and button control, which eliminates using extra pins on the TinyDuino for this.
The screen uses an SSD1331 driver for the OLED display, and we have a highly optimized and easy to use library
for this which supports both the OLED screen and the buttons on the board, even allowing for 20FPS+ video
playback from a microSD with the TinyDuino. It's also very easy to create your own projects to display text and
graphics, or create your own tiny games.
The TinyScreen is also available with an alternative device address, which allows two TinyScreens to be used on the
same TinyDuino stack when used with a Ribbon Cable Extender or with a TinyScreen+.

TinyDuino Power Requirements
Voltage: 3.0V - 5.5V
Current: 20 - 45mA (depending on brightness), d ue to the current requirements, this board cannot be run
using the TinyDuino coin cell option
SPI and I2C Interface used:
A5/SCL - I2C Serial Clock line
A4/SDA - I2C Serial Data line
11 - SCLK: This signal is the serial SPI clock out of the TinyDuino and into the TinyScreen.
13 - MOSI: This signal is the serial SPI data out of the TinyDuino and into the TinyScreen.
Note: SPI Chip select and button inputs are handled by the on-board I2C GPIO expander.
Dimensions: 25.8mm x 25mm (1.01 inches x .984 inches)
Max Height (screen surface to bottom of TinyShield connector): 4.40mm (0.173inches)
Weight: 3.2 grams (.113 ounces)
The TinyScreen library can be downloaded through the Arduino IDE menu at Sketch->Include Library-
>Manage Libraries... "TinyScreen"
TinyScreen Revision 5 boards can shut down the OLED boost converter for better power-down consumption,
supported by our latest software library.
TinyScreen is also available with an alternative device address, which allows two TinyScreens to be used on
the same TinyDuino stack when used with a Ribbon Cable Extender or with a TinyScreen+.
