MicroPython PCD8544

A MicroPython library for the Philips PCD8544 84x48 monochrome LCD, used by the Nokia 5110 display.

demo

Pinout

demo demo
Pin Name Description
1 RST External reset input, active low
2 CE Chip enable, active low
3 D/C Data high / Command low
4 DIN Serial data input
5 CLK Serial clock, up to 4 Mbits/s
6 VCC Supply voltage 2.7-3.3V
7 BL Backlight
8 GND Ground

Example

Copy the file to your device, using ampy, webrepl or compiling and deploying. eg.

$ ampy put pcd8544.py

Basic Example

import pcd8544
from machine import Pin, SPI

spi = SPI(1)
spi.init(baudrate=2000000, polarity=0, phase=0)
cs = Pin(2)
dc = Pin(15)
rst = Pin(0)

# backlight on
bl = Pin(12, Pin.OUT, value=1)

lcd = pcd8544.PCD8544(spi, cs, dc, rst)

# test pattern (50% on)
lcd.data(bytearray([0x55, 0xAA] * 42 * 6))

# bitmap smiley (horzontal msb)
lcd.clear()
# draw 8x16 in bank 0 (rows 0..7)
lcd.position(0, 0)
lcd.data(bytearray(b'\xE0\x38\xE4\x22\xA2\xE1\xE1\x61\xE1\x21\xA2\xE2\xE4\x38\xE0\x00'))
# draw 8x16 in bank 1 (rows 8..15)
lcd.position(0, 1)
lcd.data(bytearray(b'\x03\x0C\x10\x21\x21\x41\x48\x48\x48\x49\x25\x21\x10\x0C\x03\x00'))

# toggle display, image persists in DDRAM
lcd.power_off()
lcd.power_on()

# nokia logo bitmap
lcd.clear()

See /examples for more.

Addressing

Each animation frame represents 1 of 504 bytes written to the DDRAM. lcd.data(bytearray(b'\xFF'))

In horizontal mode you can use framebuf with MONO_VLSB format. Vertical mode does not have a compatible framebuf format.

Vertical
