Nokia 6100 LCD

Got my Nokia 6100 LCD working. Long story of failures. First try was a LCD with a Epson controller from ebay for 10 Euros. But somehow someone failed to solder the smd socket proberly and it went a way 😉 ( thx max ) .

Next try was a Epson based LCD including a header board from sparkfun . But this time i wasn’t able to run some demo code which was made for the LPC2138 on my LPC2148. I think the board was to fast to talk to the display. I wasn’t able set up SPI on the LPC2148 correct. Need more investigation on that topic.

So i gave up at this point and decided to go for a atmega16. I did a devel board for that which is losy based on this schematics. The boads uses simple parport icsp and has a serial line for debugging and sending data.

Finally i threw some code together using the init commands found in this project. Added support for receiving images via uart and wrote an little python client for sending images.

Future plans are to port the glcd lib to the epson based lcd.
