The Sparkfun Nokia 5110 Graphic LCD screen is a versatile, easy-to-use display module that was originally designed for use in mobile phones. Now, it's available for a wide range of applications, conveniently mounted on an easy-to-solder PCB. With a 45x45mm size, it's compact yet provides ample display space.
The heart of this screen is the PCD8544 controller, the same one used in the iconic Nokia 3310 LCD. This low power CMOS LCD controller/driver is capable of driving a graphic display of 48 rows and 84 columns. It's a single-chip solution that includes on-chip generation of LCD supply and bias voltages, ensuring minimal external components and low power consumption. The PCD8544 interfaces with microcontrollers through a serial bus interface, making integration a breeze.
Please note that due to these screens being surplus, there might be minor blemishes on them. This does not affect their performance. Additionally, your screen may or may not have a diode on the PCB, which does not impact performance and varies based on our shipments.
With the Sparkfun Nokia 5110 Graphic LCD screen, you can add a visually engaging element to your projects. Whether you're creating a weather station, a clock, or a game, this screen can display graphics and text in a clear and readable format.
