We are using the NokiaLCD, which is connected to UEXT on development board.

We use the SPI BUS to communicate with the LCD. There is a great tutorial from Mr. Jim Lynch about this LCD that was taken as reference - please get it and source code examples at the Nokia LCD product page.

Many people says that this LCD is a low quality and we should select a beter one for this project, however, there is some important advantages of using this LCD:
  • this LCD is used in many Open Source projects, we can get a lot of working example drivers, code and schematics;
  • this LCD connects directly to the development board being used;
  • this LCD is the cheapest colour LCD and is available in many online shops that ships to worldwide.
