What this example do?

In this example we’ll learn how to use the PCD8544 library. This library is used for interfacing the ORbit16™ with Nokia 5110 and Nokia 3310 LCDs.
NEW: Demo for PIC32MX added!

The demo will start painting a bitmap:

Then, after about 5 seconds, a second screen will show some examples of library functions usage. An example of float value printing is also presented:

Then the program will stops.

How I must configure my ORbit16™ to work with this example?

Go to the PCD8544 library page and read the usage document. Here you will see the display pinout. Follow the instructions in the document. In particular you must connect the display IOs as showed here (left: display IO, right: ORbit16™ IO):

  1. VCC to 3.3V
  2. GND to GND
  3. SCE to GND
  4. RST to RA0
  5. D/C to RA1
  6. DN (MOSI) to RB0
  7. SCLK to RB1
  8. LED : is the backlight, you can leave it disconnected or you can connect it to 3.3V through a 220Ω resistor

Where I can learn more about this?

Please read the documents you’ll find in the PCD8544 library page.
