    Circuit Diagram Connection

    Utilizing the I2C protocol, we'll connect our OLED display to the Arduino UNO using the hardware I2C port. Connect the OLED pins as follows:

    - OLED GND to Arduino GND
    - OLED VDD to Arduino 3V3
    - OLED SCK to Arduino A5 (Serial Clock)
    - OLED SDA to Arduino A4 (Serial Data)

    For a visual reference, check the table and diagram below:

    OLED   Arduino UNO
    GND    GND          
    VDD    3V3          
    SCK    A5           
    SDA    A4

    This circuit setup can be easily implemented using Fritzing. For more details on using OLED displays with Arduino, visit our blog.
