Replacement: None. We are no longer carrying this color LCD in our catalog. This page is for reference only.
Finally! Color LCDs you can afford and play with! Yet another product based on an SFE customer request, this 128x128 mini color LCD is a perfect match for your next portable application.
What we’ve found over in China is a ‘copy’ of the Nokia LCD found in models 6100, 6610, 7210, 7250, and 5100. We don’t know what phones it fits, and we don’t really care. This inexpensive LCD comes with a powerful white LED backlight and a relatively simple serial interface. It’s a 9-bit interface, so beware. But we were able to get the LCD up and running on a LPC2138 with a few hours worth of work.
Please note: This LCD is meant to replace a broken screen in a cell phone. The connector (both on the LCD and on the PCB) was not designed for multiple attachment/detachment. Please secure your LCD in place with double stick tape to prevent stress on these connectors. This LCD is small! Please see the comparative photos. With that said, it is still superbly readable at arms length (cell phone technology).
We’ve got the LCD and example C code for $15. You really can’t say no! We even sell the loose connector for $2 in case you are worried about soldering the tight 0.5mm pitch.
Note: This shield uses the Epson S1D15G10 or Philips PCF8833 controller (we cannot guarantee which one you will receive. Please see Jim Lynch’s tutorial below as to why.
Frame Dimensions: 1.35x1.58"

Pin Out (use the numbering visible on the display connector):
If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.
Skill Level: Competent - The toolchain for programming is a bit more complex and will examples may not be explicitly provided for you. You will be required to have a fundamental knowledge of programming and be required to provide your own code. You may need to modify existing libraries or code to work with your specific hardware. Sensor and hardware interfaces will be SPI or I2C.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.
