Raspberry Pi + Nokia 3110/5110

by bugsyrafael on Mon Mar 18, 2013 12:46 pm

I bought the Nokia 3110/5110 display and I want to be able to hook it up to my raspberry pi. I've tried a few online tutorials but was unsuccessful.

Does anyone know how to control the Nokia 3110/5110 display with the raspberry pi?

Any help would be much appreciated.

We have a tutorial on working with the 5110 here: http://learn.adafruit.com/nokia-5110-33 ... chrome-lcd

It uses an Arduino, but the wiring connections are pretty much the same, and you can look through the Adafruit library for that display (https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-PC ... CD-library) for examples of how to talk to it.

How do you import those libraries into python?

Ah.. python.

You can use the Arduino library as a reference for building a python class that talks to the LCD. The existing code will show you all the SPI commands necessary to make the thing work.

As an alternative, this thread on the Raspberry Pi forums: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 4&p=264142

has existing python code that does talk to the 5110.
