“Hacking” Nokia cell phone LCDs

Nokia Mod
Jakob has a handy guide on (re)using the Nokia cell phone LCD screens for projects, he writes – “Many old Nokia cellular phones have graphical LCDs based on the PCD8544 controller. These are perfect for various electronic projects with microcontrollers. The interface is a two-wire serial type (clock and data), and some additional signals. The LCD supply is a single 3.3 V with very low supply current.”Link.
