Description

The Piksey Pico is currently the world’s smallest Arduino compatible core that uses the newer ATmega32PB microcontroller and has a built-in USB to serial converter. It packs more features and performance than an Arduino Uno in a tiny, breadboard compatible form factor that is smaller than a matchbox in size.

The Piksey Pico uses the Optiboot bootloader, freeing up more space for your code. It has 16 breadboard compatible pins with the rest being available on the 1.27mm header pins.

Hi Darren,

Simply uncomment the following line to get the U8G2 examples working:

U8G2_SSD1306_128X64_NONAME_F_SW_I2C u8g2(U8G2_R0, /* clock=*/ SCL, /* data=*/ SDA, /* reset=*/ U8X8_PIN_NONE); // All Boards without Reset of the Display

I’ve also sent you an email with the wiring and a demo sketch that you can directly upload to the Pico to test it.

If you plan on using the lightweight U8x8 examples, then simply uncomment the following line to get them working:

U8X8_SSD1306_128X64_NONAME_SW_I2C u8x8(/* clock=*/ SCL, /* data=*/ SDA, /* reset=*/ U8X8_PIN_NONE); // OLEDs without Reset of the Display

Thanks,
Frenoy

Is it possible to turn off the power LED in software? I’d like to reduce power use to a minimum.

Hi Darren,

It is not possible to turn off the power LED in software. You would have to desolder the LED if you don’t require it.
