Using i2C SSD1306

  • I am learning how to use the new board. Debugging is a lot easier using an LCD so I am trying to use the attached code with an SSD1306 but I am getting the error below. I would appreciate finding out how to fix this or if there is a simple program showing how to use an I2C LCD that would be also great.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thank you @robert-hh .

    changed to the code below and it now works.

    i2c = I2C(0, I2C.MASTER, baudrate=100000, pins=("P9","P10"))
    oled = ssd1306.SSD1306_I2C(128, 32, i2c)

  • @jimmie looks like line 9 should start with:
    i2c = I2C(0, ........
    And then in the next line i2c instead of I2C has to be used.
