Module Tester and OLED Display?

Anyone used a 16x2 OLED with the MI Module Tester?

It should be possible, I guess, but would it likely be subject to the HF noise that the ShruthiXT suffered from, and would this adversely effect the operation of the unit?

Should fine. Mouser stocks the Vishay parts now too for ppl in the US (Rebadged Raystar)

Thanks @altitude. I’ll get myself a nice yellow one, I think.

It’s only a couple of £s more than a decent LCD, anyway.

yeah, I am quite happy that they are available, I already switched out my Ambika and MB6582 to the raystar parts and am quite pleased. One thing about the red: It’s a pretty loose interpretation of “red”, more pinkish. White, green, yellow are excellent. Blue and red, meh…

Thanks for the tip @altitude. Have you found the white Raystar ones to be genuinely white?

I bought a (unbranded) white OLED for my Ornament & Crime module, and it had a distinct bluish tinge to it.

yeah, they are white for sure. Sure you didnt get a blue OLED of the OC? They come in blue and white and the white is, well white

I ordered a yellow. Should have held off and got white, then I could have put a coloured film over it, and got any colour I wanted.

The OC display I got definitely wasn’t pure white, but was described as white on the site I bought it from, so I was a bit disappointed.

I eventually got a blue one, matching the one I bought for the Temps, so all worked out ok.
