This is a library for our Monochrome Nokia 5110 LCD Displays

These displays use SPI to communicate, 4 or 5 pins are required to interface



Rinky Dink Electronics

These displays were used in old Nokia 5110/3310 cell phones. It is a 84×48 pixel monochrome LCD display. These displays are small, but very readable and come with backlight. This display is made of 84×48 individual pixels, so you can use it for graphics, text or bitmaps. These displays are inexpensive, easy to use, require only a few digital I/O pins and are fairly low power as well

To drive the display, you will need 5 digital output pins. Another pin can be used to control (via on/off or PWM) the backlight, but the library has no support for this function.

The display driver is a PCD8544 chip, and it runs at 3.3V so you will need a 3V supply handy. Logic levels must be 3V to prevent damage so you must use some kind of levelshifter.

Nice to know:
When I timed it a fullscreen bitmap rendered in 20280 µS. In theory you can achieve a framerate of close to 50 FPS.
