#149 Lcd5110/JuliansU8glibDemo

Quick test drive of Julian Ilett’s 5110 LCD demo with the u8glib library

Notes

Nothing new here, I’m just testing Julian’s Ardutorials: Arduino, Nokia 5110 LCD & u8glib.

SPI Configuration

The u8glib takes advantage of hardware SPI, which means pin connections are dictated for at least MOSI and SCK.

Here’s the mapping from the terminology used by my particular 5110 module and pins on an Arduino Uno.

Pin Usage Arduino Uno Pin
RST reset 8
CE/SCE chip enable 10 SPI SS
DC address line 0 9
DIN data in 11 SPI MOSI
CLK clock 13 SPI SCK
VCC power  
BL Backlight on when GND  
GND Ground

This page is a web-friendly rendering of my project notes shared in the LEAP GitHub repository.

LEAP is my personal collection of electronics projects, usually involving an Arduino or other microprocessor in one way or another. Some are full-blown projects, while many are trivial breadboard experiments, intended to learn and explore something interesting (IMHO!).

The projects are usually inspired by things found wild on the net, or ideas from the sources such as:

Feel free to borrow liberally, and if you spot any issues do let me know. See the individual projects for credits where due. There are even now a few projects contributed by others - send your own over in a pull request if you would also like to add to this collection.
