Using Nokia 6300 LCD Displays with Arduino

Arduino enthusiast Andy Brown has made a huge effort in creating a hardware and Arduino library solution to using Nokia 6300 QVGA LCD screens with an Arduino. Although the PCB connector for the LCD may be a somewhat difficult, the hardware schematic is available to download so you can design your own interface board. The matching library is well documented, and the results are quite impressive:

 

 

So if you have an older Nokia 6300 laying about, or need to build a colour LCD shield on the cheap, check out Andy’s project page here. And we’re on twitter, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

If your display size needs can’t be met by a mobile phone LCD, consider firing up a Freetronics Dot Matrix Display:

They’re simple to use, yet very bright for indoor and outdoor situations. Available in various colours, the 32 x 16 LED matrix can display text and graphics quite easily – and can be daisy-chained together for extended displays. For more information, see our range of Dot Matrix Displays here
