Nokia 5110 LCD Module is a low cost Monochrome LCD Module. It can support both text and 2D Graphic images and more.
The Nokia 5110 LCD is very popular among the Arduino tinkerers. These modules are used on wide variety of applications that require some sort of interface or display data to the user.
These modules are very cheap and you can use them with any microcontroller (MCU).
Nokia 5110 LCD Module can be powered by 3.3V to 5V. But it is recommended to use with 3.3V. It consumes very low power as less than 3mA when no backlight is used.
It draws about 80mA with backlight. The display looks good even in extreme sunlight and at dark (with backlight) as it is a monochrome display.
Nokia 5110 LCD Module uses the PCD8544 controller, which is the same used in the Nokia 3310 LCD.
All necessary functions for the display are provided in a single chip, including on-chip generation of LCD supply and bias voltages, resulting in a minimum of external components and low power consumption.
The PCD8544 interfaces to microcontrollers through a serial bus interface.
