Does anyone know where to get the tiny LCDs that are in the front of cell phones?

SparkFun used to supply the small front screen, and only for a dollar, but they don't anymore. :(

I looked for something like that a few months ago, I remember that I found a supplier for very small LCDs that used them for graphic keys, you know, the kind that change the character on the key. Very cool, but in the end I didn't pursue the matter any further; I guess you could search for a supplier of such keys and find what you are looking for.

I searched for Nokia 6100 LCD screens on 'Bay. You can typically pick them up for <$10 and they are well supported in forums etc. Some of them are even available with solder pads which I was lucky enough to get otherwise connecting them woudl be hard work.

These are 128x128 and I think about 1.5"" diagonally

You can get this one at

I have a board layout ready to go, but there doesn't seem to be much interest.

This is nearly the same interface as the Nokia display. It's not color however.

It would be very difficult to justify producing a module with this display and sell it for $10. Any more than that, and it won't be competitive.

Thanks,

For am application I absolutely need a backlight. The Nokia 6100 LCD is a bit big but I guess it will have to do for my project. Besides SFN where are there connectors for easier soldering of the Nokia 6100 LCD pins?

There is a guy selling them on ebay 2 for $20 (last i looked) . They http://thomaspfeifer.net/

If you look at the picture they have solder pads on them. It still isn't easy soldering them (trust me). but not that hard either.

There are cheaper sources on 'bay as well but I really wanted a guarantee of the solder pads

They have an interface board that lets you run the display with 5V, and handles that connector issue.
I'm using one in a project now, and I have a pretty good driver for it, if you're interested.

The data does say "No Backlight" but there are spots for 4 right angle SMT LEDs. They would have to be on their own PCB as they are not on the same plane as the interface connector.

So, if you want to tinker, this one is capable. But, it doesn't seem to be worth the effort when you can buy a color solution for $35.

I've rather fallen in love with one from Newhaven display http://www.newhavendisplay.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=189

No connector, you solder the little board to your board.

Disclaimer: I haven't bought one of these yet. The play budget got axed.

Look further in the newhavendisplay.com site, they provide some example code as well.

The question is for "gr82bdad", see if he has the datasheet of the tiny LCD module sold by electronics-goldmine. as in his uploaded LCD picture.

Ah, I see. The quote-tags did not do what they are supposed to do. I'll see if I can fix that.

Consider to write a PM to gr82bdad, .... that may be more efficient.

Edit: you disabled BBcode in your replies ... that is why it didn't show as it should. So leave BBcode-check on next time.
