A Booster Pack that fits your display needs. The 43oh OLED pack sits right on top of the LaunchPad and is controlled via SPI. The driver used on this OLED is the SSD1306. Currently the PCB and drivers are designed for MSP430 chips that have USI built in. Testing has been done on the MSP430G2452 with 8Kb flash. There are plans to make this work with the USCI stage of the MSP430.
The OLED resolution is 128x64 pixels. None of the pins of the MSP430 are hard wired to the OLED. The four pins that control the OLED go through a solder bridge, so you can use those pins for other functions too. Two push-buttons allow user interface functions. All important OLED pins are brought out to a header in case you wish to connect the board to another microcontroller.

- Fits the MSP430 Launchpad.
- SSD1306 OLED Driver.
- 128*64 pixel resolution.
Connecting the OLED Terminal BoosterPack
Two female header breakouts on either side allow you to mount this Boosterpack on a Launchpad.
Solder Jumper Setup for hardware v1.1
Solder Jumper Setup for hardware v1.2
The v1.2 hardware has solder positions pre fabbed on the PCB for two reasons:
- Reduce manufacturing and soldering time.
- The USCI is available on the top of the line micro-controller - the MSP430G2553. It is the usual choice for the MSP430 Launchpad.
