Raspberry Pi Pico with LCD & SSD1306 OLED Display

Raspberry Pi Pico with LCD & SSD1306 OLED Display

Displays are most important part of a electronics project. For an IoT based project or an non IoT based projects, displays are required. In this tutorial we will learn about connecting a Raspberry Pi Pico with LCD & SSD1306 OLED display. You can use either of the display in your project using raspberry pi pico or pico W.

This entire project is coded using MicroPython. It can be helpful for those who are planning to start with MicroPython. We are using a temperature sensor to measure the temperature and display the data in degree Celsius as well as degree Fahrenheit.

Components Required

  • Raspberry Pi PICO
  • DS18B20 Temperature Sensor
  • OLDE Display SSD1306 SPI
  • I2C 16X2 LCD Display or I2C LCD converter
  • Jumper Cables

I2C LCD Display module

LCD Display module is used to display text, graphics or images. I2C LCD Display module operates in the I2C bus protocol and has a standard 8-bit data bus. The module has an 8bit data bus and can support up to 256 characters. It is a single-chip solution and can be interfaced with a microcontroller using the I2C bus. I2C LCD Display module has a simple data transfer protocol and available in a 8×8 or 16×16 pixel format.


The sensor DS18B20 measures the temperature and sends the data to Raspberry Pi Pico. Further it shows the data in LCD and in 128×64 oled display.

The python code contains libraries and the actual code. You can download the code from the given link and open it using Thonny python editor. Unzip the file and upload it in your raspberry pi pico. Do not rename any python file present in the folder with out knowing the code properly.

Building & Testing

We have connected the components on a breadboard as per the connection diagram. Now we have uploaded the code and powered the entire project.
