Nokia 1100 LCD PIC controller interface


Nokia LCDs have been a popular choice for hardware projects for quite a while. [Ramandeep] published a how-to on interfacing the 1100 series LCD with a PIC controller. The 1100 features easily soldered contacts and a backlight, making it an good choice for adding an LCD to your project.

  1. That’s pretty sweet…

    Though I would LOVE to see a hack on how to interface a Composite video signal to a PIC or ATMEL… I have a whole pile of PSX and portable DVD screens with nothing good to do with them. a specific tutorial on how to make a virtual analog gauge as well as simple text output would be invaluable.

    I could see it being used as a feedback for other devices, some robotics project with the status of various aspects on the screen. Or for a car monitoring system, many people already have composite based screens in their car for GPS or mobile media PCs… being able to put performance stats on the screen would be an awesome feature.

    If you want to do this with a pic, pick up “programing and customizing the pic microcontroller” by myke predko. there is a project on building a simple pong like game. it sucks up a lot of cycles, even in machine language though.

    Youd be far better of with a propeller chip. a few passive components and the free video libraries and yo are good to go. its capable of displaying “c64 like” graphics with very little work on your part.

    If you want to deal with composite, go for a propeller MCU, you just need a few resistors and a phono socket.

    Does anyone know of a good place where you can purchase the Nokia 1100 LCD screens?

    I’ve done a similar type of interface before for the Nokia 3310 (http://www.100acre.org/elec/nokia_lcd/) but this screen looks much easier to connect to.

    Hello,I have a Nokia 1101 LCD.Is this lcd compatible with the 1100 series ?Can you provide me more information on how to initialise and show some data on the display.I have read the datasheet but it’s pretty complicated.
    Thanks !

    I have tried with 8051. It works but the contrast is very low what to do?
