The Nokia 5110 is a basic graphic LCD screen for lots of applications. It was originally intended for as a cell phone screen. This one is mounted on an easy to solder PCB.

It uses the PCD8544 controller, which is the same used in the Nokia 3310 LCD. The PCD8544 is a low power CMOS LCD controller/driver, designed to drive a graphic display of 48 rows and 84 columns. All necessary functions for the display are provided in a single chip, including on-chip generation of LCD supply and bias voltages, resulting in a minimum of external components and low power consumption. The PCD8544 interfaces to microcontrollers through a serial bus interface.


  • Single chip LCD controller/driver
  • 48 row, 84 column outputs
  • Display data RAM 48 × 84 bits
  • Serial interface maximum 4.0 Mbits/s
  • Logic supply voltage range VDD to VSS 2.7V to 3.3V
  • Limiting values: supply voltage VDD: 7V
  • Limiting values: all input voltages: VDD + 0.5V
  • Low power consumption, suitable for battery operated

LCD5110 myGLCD(8,9,10,11,12);
extern uint8_t SmallFont[];
extern uint8_t MediumNumbers[];
extern uint8_t BigNumbers[];
void setup()
void loop()
 for (int i=0; i<=10000; i++)
   myGLCD.printNumF(float(i)/3, 2, RIGHT, 0);
   myGLCD.printNumI(i, RIGHT, 24);
 myGLCD.print("|            |", CENTER, 16);
 for (int i=0; i<12; i++)
   myGLCD.print("\\", 6+(i*6), 16);
