ELGIN, Ill. - Jan. 25, 2016 - PRLog -- Eliminate long Color OLED development time with Newhaven Display International’s new Color OLED Arduino Shields. Available in three sizes, these shields come ready to mate with some of Arduino’s most commonly used development boards. In addition to these Color OLED Shields, standard off-the-shelf color OLED modules are available making it easy to develop with more than one size. Newhaven Display’s Color OLED Arduino Shields are designed with all levels of engineers in mind looking to upgrade their current project with a more advanced, low power display technology.

Engineered in Elgin, IL USA, the Color OLED Arduino Shields are available in three sizes: 1.27”, 1.5” and 1.69” diagonal. Each Color OLED Arduino Shield comes with a serial interface color OLED display module that has a single row pin-out designed for easy breadboarding, can support video, and has all the great display features of Newhaven Display’s Full Color OLEDs. In addition to these three Color OLED Shields, the individual serial interface Color OLEDs are sold as separate modules ready to be used for product development. These modules can also be customized to meet various project requirements. In addition to customization, Newhaven Display offers pin-header soldering and other value-add services.

In order to support the leading tools for engineering development, Newhaven Display’s engineers designed the Color OLED Arduino Shields to be compatible with the Arduino UNO and the Arduino UNO SMD boards. These development boards are powerful tools that will allow engineers to quickly start developing their product with any of Newhaven’s Color OLED Shields. By utilizing Arduino’s vastly growing community, engineers can take advantage of shared code developed by other engineers as well as code created by Newhaven Display’s engineers. To help engineers get started with the Color OLED Arduino Shields, Newhaven Display shares a repository of example code to get any engineer up and running as soon as the product arrives. Additional resources can be found within Arduino’s community such as code assistance, code branches, and sharing knowledge with other like-minded engineers all working together to create a global appreciation for technological advancements.

The open source hardware and software design of the Color OLED Arduino Shields save engineers time and money. Newhaven Display’s engineers designed them to be flexible development tools that can be as simple or complex as needed by the user. These shields are not limited to just the Arduino brand boards, they can easily be breadboarded to any existing development board. These shields also come 3.3V-5V ready in order to support a broader range of end products. Since the Arduino Development boards are powerful tools, a micro SD slot comes as a built-in standard for the Color OLED shield allowing additional storage space for more complex code. This eliminates any memory constraints of the Arduino board. For interchangeable development options, the Color OLED modules share the same pin-out so that one shield can be used between all three sizes. With all of these unique features and more, these shields are a stable component for any display project since they can grow with evolving products.

The Color OLED Arduino Shields offer any level of engineers an affordable and efficient way to begin development with Newhaven Display’s Color OLEDs. These shields aid in bridging the gap between all types of users since they are easy to use, quick to market, affordable, and are a part of a great engineering community. The Color OLED Arduino Shields are not only restricted to engineers, they are the perfect tool for teaching various aspects of display development and can easily be adapted to a classroom setting. Designed by engineers for engineers, these shields come ready to take any idea into product realization.
