Hi I am trying to power up a HUD( LCD-15079) using an artemis blackboard. I tried the examples and got no reaction from the screen. How do I tell If I fried it? The eventual idea is to harvest speed and altitude off of a gps(GPS-14414) module and put them onto the screen. I got the GPS to provide data to the serial monitor. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi gompertm,

Unfortunately, that OLED is one of the few Qwiic boards that is not compatible with Artemis boards yet. This is a known issue and the engineers working on the Apollo3 Arduino Core are working on a fix but do not have an estimate on when that will be complete. This should have an issue tracking the compatibility problem but I do not see one on either GitHub repository for the OLED or Artemis so I'll poke the engineers to add that so you can track it. I'll try and reply to this post once that issue is posted.

In the meantime (and assuming you have one), your OLED should work perfectly with an Arduino Mega or similar microcontrollers with a good amount of RAM. Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns about your OLED HUD or other SparkFun parts in your project and we would be happy to help as much as we can.

I spoke with the engineer for this board about this and we pushed fixes for the remaining Qwiic boards that had incompatibilities with Artemis. The latest version of the WiseChip HUD Library should work with Artemis with no issues. You can either update it via Arduino's library manager tool or manually download and install the latest version.

I can also verify that it works with the Teensy 3.6 with no modifications so that or the new Teensy 4.0 will also work with this display.
