SparkFun Color LCD Breakout
This breakout board for the popular Nokia 6100 Knock-off color LCD has an improved backlight driver circuit (boosts to 7V) , plus we give you a tri-color status LED and 2 pushbuttons, all accessed through one 12-pin 0.1" spaced header. Vbat and the 3.3V input can be driven from the same regulated 3.3V source, but the device will draw more current than if the Vbat input was driven from a higher source voltage. For an estimate of the current draw for a given input voltage, refer to the chart on the schematic file below.
This breakout is set up for serial communication to the display and comes with the Nokia 6100 display attached and stand-offs as photographed.
Note: Pins 8 and 9 on the Nokia LCD connector will be connected with a solder bridge.
